We are just in the process of having our trophys sent home. We live in canada, hired a broker and just received shipping cost from exporter in joburg. The fees we are paying ( provided there are no issues and everything goes smooth) are $1300 to broker plus a few hundred for custom fees. Then we have to pay 14% tax on value of trophys. We have just been told we could ship to Denver colorado for less on the flight. Then once there there broker fees are cheaper. The US is about a third of the cost to tan everything and we would only pay tax on value of tanning done not the cost of trophys. Anyone from canada have knowledge or insight on this and if going through the states is a better option??
