Courtesy Note – Import Fees and Tariffs:
USA: VKB HQ ships all products from China. Customers must be aware that US Customs imposes tariffs on goods imported from China that are valued at $800 or more. If you place an order over $800, you will be liable to pay the import tax and tariffs upon delivery, which is 29% of the order total. YOU are the importer, and YOU are responsible to pay these custom fees if they apply to your order.
Canada: VKB HQ ships all products from China. Customers must be aware that goods imported into Canada are subject to the federal GST, which is calculated at the rate of 5% of the duty-paid value of the shipment. Certain provinces will collect the HST at a rate of 13%. This tax must be paid at time of entry and is collected at the border. Import Fees rates vary according to the type of goods you are importing and the country from which they came or were made in. Depending on the goods or their value, some other taxes may apply, such as excise duty or excise tax on luxury items. YOU are the importer, and YOU are responsible to pay these custom fees if they apply to your order.
VKB North America reserves the right to reject any future orders from domestic or international customers that previously refused a delivery due to high fees, duties or taxes levied by the government (this includes Canada).
