Reduce Duty & Tax on Imported Goods.

PF Collins offers Customs Consulting and Trade Compliance services to help reduce the risks and duty costs associated with international trade and procurement. Our Customs Consultants are certified through the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers (CSCB) and have over 40 years of experience.

Clearing a shipment through customs is often more complicated than simply choosing a tariff classification and submitting it to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). Many imported goods have additional requirements, such as Coasting Trade Licences for imported vessels or duties applicable under SIMA. PF Collins’ Customs Consulting services can help lower (or eliminate) duty and tax applicable to your imports.

Our Customs Consultants will review the applicable customs rules and regulations and create a plan for the import of your goods. They can review your purchase orders, Incoterms, and supply chain activities to ensure you are paying the least amount of duty while complying with all Canadian import and export regulations.

We offer the following Customs Consulting services:

  • CARM Assistance
  • Coasting Trade Applications (Temporary Foreign Vessel Imports)
  • Advance Rulings
  • Tariff Classification Analysis
  • Functional Unit Entries
  • Free Trade Agreement Management (CUSMA, CETA, etc.)

Customs Consulting & Trade Compliance.

Canadian importers and exporters are ultimately responsible for the information provided to CBSA in relation to their imported shipments.

The CBSA enforces accuracy of import/export data through trade compliance audits. Non-compliance can result in penalties of up to $25,000 per infraction under the Administrative Monetary Penalty System (AMPS).

Customs audits have been increasing in recent years. As such, we recommend you create your own compliance plan and procedures to ensure accurate records related to your imports are kept.

PF Collins offers the following Customs Consulting and Trade Compliance services to help you create a compliance plan:

  • Compliance Manual
  • Compliance Review
  • Pre-Audit Review
  • Post-CBSA Audit Review
