I see lot's of good deals on electronics online. Most of the distibutors are located in the US. Can someone help me calculate the total price of this? It is a Technics SADA15K reciever at $199.88USD. The shipping cost is 27.90USD plus 9.95USD(for Canada). So I fugure that (199.88 + 27.90 + 9.95) x 1.55(exchange rate) = $368.48CAD. But how much is duty? Is it a flat rate, or a percent?

There is no duty on electronic's being shipped between the United States and Canada, we can thank NAFTA for that. But since rev Can and customs have become one, you will pay G.S.T. and depending on what Province you are in P.S.T. I am in Ontario and order electronics all the time (mostly directv) and have never had any trouble with duty. If your shipping comes from anyone other than USPS you will probably be subjected to a broker fee ($20 to $50 most of the time). So if you can choose shipping go with USPS/Can Post.

Do you know where I can find the exact % for Nova Scotia?

What ever your provincial sales tax is? Combined with the G.S.T. The broker fees are based on size, weight, quantity, etc...

Call Canadian Customs. They should be able to give you current info along with any new changes.
