Paying Your Duty & Taxes in CARM Release 1
If you are currently registered in CBSA’s CARM client portal, you are able to make payments towards your CBSA 15-digit Business Number account. Payments made in the CARM client portal or any other manner should only be made by GST Direct or by having a RPP Duty Bond in place.
GST Direct has been arranged via your Customs Broker. Release of goods is secured on your Customs Broker’s Bond. Your Customs Broker will make payment on the Duty, Excise Tax, & SIMA directly to the CBSA and supply you with a monthly statement on the 25th of each month outlining the GST portion. In turn, the Importer will make payment directly to CBSA for the GST amount provided by your Customs Broker. Payment must be made by the last business day of the same month.
RPP Duty Bond
The Importer has secured their own Release Prior to Payment Duty Bond and arranged with their Customs Broker to utilize the Importer bond to obtain release prior to payment. On the 25th of each month, your Customs Broker will supply you with a monthly statement outlining all Duties & Taxes. In turn, the Importer will make payment directly to CBSA for the total provided by your Customs Broker. Payment must be received by CBSA by the last business day of each month.
