Canada customs clearance procedures?

1. Reporting
At their time of arrival, all shipments entering Canada must be reported to Canada Customs. In most cases, the contracted carrier reports the shipment to Canada Customs at the point of entry. This is done either electronically or by submitting a carrier document called a Cargo Control Document (also known as a waybill, manifest or advice notice). The carrier hands over the Cargo Control Document to the customs broker. This arranges for the release and account for your shipments.

2. Releasing Goods
Your customs broker is licensed by Canada Customs and acts on your behalf to handle customs related details. The first step is to process the release of your goods through Canada Customs-in most cases electronically, but sometimes manually depending on the carrier method of reporting.

Depending on the carrier there are a number of different release procedures that take place. Your customs broker works with the carrier and Customs to ensure the quick and seamless release of your goods. The Canada Customs invoice, or the commercial invoice prepared by the exporter or shipper, is used to support the release process.

Some goods are subject to the requirements of other government departments and may require permits (i.e.: textiles, clothing, steel products, poultry, some meat products, controlled drugs). Customs administers these requirements at the time of import. Your broker will work with you to ensure that the proper permits are in place.

3. Examinations
Customs randomly examines selected shipments to verify compliance. The frequency of examination depends on the compliance records of both the importer and exporter and the type of goods being imported. Insufficient or incomplete documentation may delay the clearance of goods or result in examination.

4. Accounting for Duties and/or Taxes
Your customs broker submits a final accounting package to Canada Customs to pay the appropriate duties and/or taxes. This is done once the shipment details are reviewed for compliance. The broker, on your behalf, pays the proper amount of duties and/or taxes to Canada customs. If there are any compliance related issues, your customs broker will work with you and your supplier to resolve these issues.

For products that qualify under the terms of NAFTA, a properly completed NAFTA Certificate of Origin must be on file at the time of accounting. This enables you to take advantage of the preferred duty free status of qualifying goods.

What is Household Goods and Personal Effects?

Household goods and personal effects are types of personal property. This section discusses the evaluation of these types of assets.

1. Household Goods
Household goods are items of personal property found in or near a home that a person uses on a regular basis. They include items needed by the household for maintenance, use and occupancy of the premises as a home. Examples include pets, furniture, clothing, jewelry, appliances, children’s toys, tools and other equipment used in the home.

2. Personal Effects
Personal effects are items of personal property ordinarily worn or carried by the individual, and articles otherwise having an intimate relation to the individual. Personal effects include, but are not limited to, personal jewelry including wedding and engagement rings, personal care items, and educational or recreational items such as books or musical instruments.

If you are looking to move a large household and have furniture, appliances and other household items to ship then consider intermodal rail transport within Canada. Canworld Logistics specializes in interprovincial moves.

Why do I need to sign a Power of Attorney?

When a customs broker signs any entry or affidavit for an importer, that signature has as much legal effect as if the importer himself had signed the document. An importer authorizes the customs broker to sign and file these documents by means of a Customs power of attorney. This power of attorney is limited to Customs and related business. This power of attorney has great significance; therefore it is incumbent upon the importer to be aware of the work being performed on his behalf to ensure that all entries and declarations are accurate and correct.
