      Yes, you can import those goods from Canada to the UK. The UK is one of Canada’s largest trading partners and the destination for most of her exports. Although many products are exported to the UK, the ones that are exported the most are natural resources, manufactured products and agricultural products. That should be good news for you since you are importing manufactured products.

      Thank you, I was hoping to make a lot of money off of my imports. How much will it cost as far as VAT and duty to import these goods?

      The cost of importing goods depends on the specific goods and what they will be used for. This will depend on the description written on the package and the TARIC code. This can be found on the HMRC website along with some other pertinent information about importing into the UK. Be sure to look at the section about CHIEF, or Customs Handling of Import/Export Freight.

      CHIEF is a software that you can get from HMRC that allows you to

      ● get direct access to electronic processing of imports including the calculation of duties and VAT.
      ● Identification of goods.
      ● Electronic communications between customs and you.
      ● Validation that information entered is accurate.
      ● Recording, monitoring and accounting of duties charged on imports.

      Wow, this is a great tool that HMRC provides. It would be great if there is a similar website as HMRC that the Canadian government set up.

      The only website that I know of that is extremely helpful when importing from Canada is called Statistics Canada. You can get a lot of helpful information off this site:

      ● Canadian International Merchandise Trade Database
      ● Harmonized system classification of goods
      ● Trade data
      ● Statistics and summary tables
      ● Trade publications and research papers

      It also gives you access to the major classification systems used in international trade.

      Does HMRC also give trade statistics about importing from Canada to the UK?

      On the HMRC link I posted earlier, there is a section devoted to trade statistics. You can identify trade opportunities by looking at these statistics, which I believe are international. Therefore, Canada would be included in them. There is also a section about International Trade Developments, which are regulations that HMRC is considering setting in place in the future.
