ok, so ive been getting my relatives to send me some stuff from overseas, if it comes in under $1000 the gst and duty payable is at a fine level, im happy to pay it once it goes over $1000, the gst, duty, excise, processing fees, 10 folds! yes 10 fold!! im trying to legally get more in without paying the high duty rates, without breaking the law or appear n the FBIs most wanted. so far ive come up with these possibilities - get relatives/freinds to bring it over on the plane when they come, this works fine, however no one likes me, so this is going to work once per year - I could fly over there and bring it back under the $1000 limit , and the savings might pay for most of my flights which is better then nothing, but I dont need to go there for any reason - buy a container and bring in a lot more, which will reduce shipping but I still have to pay high taxes - a friend suggested I ship to his country and then to here, and insist it works, however I think he might be wrong as taxes are calculated upon goods entering the country - put it on a private jet and them to bring it in.........I dont know anyone with a private jet! any genious' out there?
