    I am wondering the legal situation of importing coins/bars of metals like palladium and rhodium.

    We're taxed 10% on these products here although if I imported them in the situation of a possible investment is this legal to bypass the GST?

    As far as I know when I import goods I don't get charged a GST.

    I missed out on the last opportunity to buy palladium because of not knowing what to do or what trouble I could get myself into.
