Did anybody get stuck with a massive customs bill (import fees, duties, etc.) for shipping their goods (GTF) after landing in Canada? I used UPS to ship a few small boxes to Canada from the US. The CBSA agent at the time of my landing had said that as long as I give the freight company -the stamped GTF, stamped Personal Effects Accounting document and stamped Casual Goods Accounting showing $0 in all the fields including duties, etc., no customs fees would be incurred as the law allows a “settler” to bring their used items to Canada duty free. And I did bring the items I had with me at the time of landing for free.
I’m very confused and wondering if somebody else had a similar experience. I cannot reach UPS Canada Brokerage at the moment, but I’m wondering if I should go to the border and might be able to resolve the issue by releasing my goods in person?
