is a voltage difference (230 V here/110 V in Canada)so could it work
there at a lower voltage and should i have to pay any tax or duty for
it.If yes then how much approx?

you don't pau any tax or duty if you are bringing it as part of your
settlers effects and it is listed on your goods with or goods to follow
list that you get stamped by cutoms when you land.

The voltage difference is nothing major for ao cmputer, you will either
already have a dual voltage power supply, looka tthe back and see if
there is a switch saying 220/110 and if not you can simply buy a new
power supply in Canada for around $30 and replace your old one and
that's about all you need to do. Everything in the computer runs on DC.

Thanx for prompt reply.
We told immigration at Toronto airport verbally that goods coming,
this was more than a year before (13 months); after leaving Canada we
forget/ busy to fill out list of goods to submit; any chance we can
still submit list and get it stamped from customs?
My computer shows only 230V supply.

Computer PSU is relatively cheap and easily changed.
It is still good to bring. Most computer shops will swap you one over for
$40-$50.

That may complicate things a little, but I have found customs to be pretty
flexible, it may be worth writing a letter explaining the whole details and
see if it will help.

Hard to tell.

Anyone else been in this situation before ?
