If you're based in Canada, we now have to charge VAT at the point of purchase.

All Canadian parcels are sent DDP (Delivered Duty Paid) via priority DHL. This means that any VAT charged to import books, is paid at the point of purchase and no extra import fees are due after this.

The below table shows the current rates of VAT added for each Canadian province or territory we currently ship to. This is under constant review and is may change to reflect current legislation. To see a full GST/HST breakdown, please see here.
