Hello everyone
My cousin is planning on moving to Canada and he wants to bring his cars with him if its possible and if the taxes are not too hi on them. He asked me to find out, I tried searching but couldn't find anything. Does anyone know anything about this?
thanx in advance

I don't believe their is a tax on bringing your personal car there when you move location. The only time there is a tariff is if you are bringing the car in with intent to sell. So he shouldn't have any problems bringing it in.

Oh ok... if you want to bring in a car into middle east, taxes there are pretty heavy. Glad to hear its not the same for Canada.

^ yup....for moving to Canada, it's listed under personal effects, and as long as he declares them on his first landing, then there are no taxes no matter how many cars he brings:thumbup:

I think there is just a small fee for registering in this province from another province or country if it has never been registared in Ontario before.

Same thing happened with my car, it was a B.C. car and when we shipped it here they said I had to pay somthing for getting it registered in Ontario.

AS long as it was part of this personal effects list he got stamped during his landing process...it shouldn't be anything big. Your good, your moving from states....when we were planning to move from the middleeast, we were asked to get the bumpers, headlights/cornerlights replaced...we didn't bother..we just sold the car rather than bring it with us.

Depends on which country he is moving from. If he is moving to Canada from the United States, it will be much lower and it will be much easier to legalize in Canada. If from some other country then it would be much more difficult.

yup, I'd imagine middle eastern cars use the same european style headlights, not north american. :)

there's actually different specifications for each which would cause the difference.

I suggested the same thing to him. He said that the only reason why he wants to bring his cars here is because you can't get brabus benz here too easily. Brabus and Kleeman are packages offered at the dealerships in the middle east. He paid a lot for it so he doesn't want to sell it. He won't get much for it he says.
