Device: Kobo: Not just an eReader, it's an adventure!
There seems to be some confusion surronding my request for the Canadian import duties.

I'm trying to work out a formula for what a Glo (or other Kobo device) should cost in each country.

To work out the base formula for the costs in Canada, I need to know the import duty charged for an eReader from Taiwan/China into Canada (as a percentage). Once I know this, the base cost of the device in Canada can be determined, and from that, a formula for the rest of the world can be determined (with some level of fuzziness).

I'm presuming that the devices being imported into a country are being directly imported into that country, without passing through Canada first.

In Australia, the 10% GST is the only import fees charged on the eReaders at the border. This GST is not recoverable, so it does become part of the cost basis of the import.
