Dear Customs Broker:

We are interested in bringing 240 dozen of Fresh Carnations flowers from Chile. The flowers are for Ornamental use. We will be selling the products to Walmart and have no previous experience on flowers to Canada. We are concerned that they could have some soil on it and could affect the importation of the goods.

 The unit price of the dozen is of USD $3.96. The freight amount will be USD $ 1500 included in the price of the goods

I want to be Know how much duty and GST I have to pay and what are all the requirements and proper documents on hand to avoid any problem with CBSA. Can you please advise? I am a very busy person and I would prefer to have a Video Conference with you and your team.

Please email me if you have any questions.

Best Regards

Tamara Flores
