The CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) digital initiative is changing how CBSA assesses and collects duties and taxes on commercial goods imported into Canada.

On May 13, 2024, CARM will become the official system of record that importers and other trade chain partners will use to pay duties and taxes.

You need to register and prepare to account for imported commercial goods through CARM in advance of May 2024.

Making sure your business is ready for May 13, 2024 is easy:

Importers should register their businesses and delegate authority to their customs broker in CARM now. More for importers

Customs brokers should continue working with importers to ensure they are registered and have delegated the necessary access. More for customs brokers

Trade consultant, financial security providers, or other trade chain partners can find out what they can do to get started with CARM.

What is CARM?

The CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management project is a multi-year initiative that will transform the collection of duties and taxes for goods imported into Canada. Through CARM, the CBSA will modernize and streamline the process of importing commercial goods.

Once fully implemented, CARM will:

  • simplify the overall importing process
  • provide a modern interface for importing into Canada
  • give importers self-service access to their information
  • reduce the cost of importing goods into Canada
  • improve consistency of compliance with trade rules
