If you put the value at $20k then it still won't be $5k in fees. No need to go through RIV as it's more than 15yrs old.

Duty 6.1% = $1220
HST (calculated on value + duty) - $2758.6

Total - $3978.6

Safety and emissions (provided it doesn't need anything) - $150

Grand total - $4128.6

So still less than $5k

There is absolutely no reason to hire a broker to do the paperwork as it's as easy as they come for importing a vehicle.

Now who is to say that a 24 yr old BMW is worth $20k
