Customs Clearance, Taxes, Duties, and Fees: When ordering goods from Aquabiotech, whether such order falls under Aquabiotech’ Free shipping Policy or otherwise, the customer is responsible for assuring the goods can be lawfully imported to the destination country. The recipient of the goods will be the importer of record and must comply with all laws, rules, and regulations of the destination country. Orders shipped outside of Canada may be subject to import taxes, sales, use and value-added taxes, and customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties, and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient’s country. Additional charges for customs clearance, including obtaining a customs broker, must be fulfilled by the customer. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
