In a news release this week the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced that the implementation of the Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) system is progressing.
The initial phase of the project was launched in May 2021 and allowed importers, customs brokers and trade consultants to view importer transactions and statements of account, request rulings, and pay invoices with new electronic payment options.
In October 2023, the CARM Release 2 system will be available for selected industry partners who want to test their own internal systems, and for software service providers to continue to certify their software with CARM.
The proposed regulatory amendments continue on schedule with a planned coming-into-force date of May 2024, when CARM becomes the official system of record.
To ease the transition to CARM, all commercial businesses who import goods into Canada are to register now on the CARM Client Portal, ahead of the planned coming-into-force date of May 2024.
