Basic procedures for customs clearance

1. Apply for Business Number

First of all, goods exported to Canada (whether it is an individual or a business) should apply to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for a Business Number (BN) in advance to set up an import and export account. This account is a 9-digit number under which different accounts can be applied . For example, 825434222RT0001 is a federal GST account, and 825434222RM0001 is an import and export account.

2. Confirm your own goods

Merchants need to obtain relevant product information when importing goods, confirm product attributes and obtain product samples as much as possible.

This part involves: the ingredients and materials of the product, usage, origin, confirming whether your product is involved in Canadian local license management, whether it is on the list prohibited from importing in Canada, whether it is an anti-dumping and countervailing product, etc. (details about anti-dumping and countervailing Click here for more details ).

If you decide to authorize the customs declaration company to declare, you need to provide the following materials:

  • Packing slip with product information
  • Commercial invoice (invoice)
  • Bill of lading (the above three items are provided by domestic freight forwarders)
  • Arrival notice manifest (bulk cargo)/arrival notice (full cabinet) (this material is provided by the Canadian freight forwarder)
  • Certificate of Origin FormA (It is best to provide a certificate of origin when declaring customs. Depending on the country of origin, some goods may sometimes save some tariffs during customs declaration. For example, importing brooms and straw hats produced in Vietnam can save part of the tariff. )

We will confirm the 10-digit commodity code of the product according to the materials you provide, and then confirm the tariff rate of the goods you import; whether they are in the ranks of duty-free goods; whether they are anti-dumping goods; whether additional application for relevant licenses is required and other details. The customs broker will extract the required information from the materials you provide and input it into the candata system, generate a B3 form and submit it to the customs.

3. Cargo shipment, inspection and declaration

After placing an order, the merchant needs to determine the mode of transportation for import, and determine the date of arrival or expected arrival of the goods in Canada. (DH Customs Broker can provide professional sea, land and air freight services for merchants, LCL FCL · special line customs clearance · door-to-door delivery) . In addition, whether the goods are transported into the country by the importer himself or through a carrier, they need to be declared to the customs in a timely manner. No matter which port you choose in Canada, DH customs brokers can declare to the customs through the electronic data interchange system (EDI).

4. Goods release

Comprehensive accounting and tariff payment goods release mode

The release of Canadian customs requires complete data and documents, and the Canadian customs procedure form B3-3 (tax bill) can be released before being released.

The following documents need to be submitted:

  • Two copies of Form A8A-B (provided by the shipping company)
  • Cargo Control Document (CCD) provided by the carrier
  • Two copies of the customs invoice (CI1 form)
  • All import permits, certificates, licenses or other documents required by government departments and agencies related to imported goods must provide a copy, and electronic copies can also be provided.

Minimum document release mode: This mode allows the importer to use temporary and incomplete documents for inspection and release, and does not need to pay taxes during the release process, but it needs to be completed within a specific time. This model usually requires prior application, but certain guarantees are required. Usually this model is suitable for some importers with large trade volume. (Such as large corporations such as LCBO.)

5. Matters after release

After the goods are released, relevant taxes need to be paid: cash, debit card, check or money order, traveler’s check, and credit card if the amount is less than $5,000.

After the goods are released, if the merchant finds any problems with the financial information, whether you find that the imported goods are not tax-related (tax refundable) or need to pay taxes, you should modify the relevant information within 90 days of finding the error. If it is necessary to return the tax from the customs for tax refund, you can apply to the customs for a refund within 4 years from the date the goods are entered into the account. After the payment is successful, the truck can be arranged to pick up the goods.
