Hi, does anyone know about the tax matter when purchasing the diamond from US and ship it to Canada? Do I have to pay both canada and us taxes?

Hi McMugle,According to Canada Customs & Revenue Agency (CCRA) you will be charged for a loose diamond from the US:10% excise tax on the price of the stone, translated into Canadian dollars;The excise tax then gets added to the base value of the stone for purposes of calculating GST = 7%;Plus Ontario PST = 8% :(1.07 + 1.08) x 1.10 x CAD $Priceor 1.265 x CAD $PriceYou should not pay US taxes though

so, is everyone has to pay for that 10% excise tax? even though the wholesales or retailer? What if I buy the diamond under my company account?
