Important Reminder- GPT Withdrawal – January 1, 2015

The General preferential Tariff (GPT) benefits on goods imported from 72 countries will be withdrawn by the Canada Border Services Agency in less than 6 months from now! January 1, 2015 is around the corner.

These changes mean that you may have to pay more duties on your imports from major Canada`s Trading Partners, including China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Brazil, India, Malaysia, Russia and Thailand.


How many of your importations will be affected?

Did you estimate what will be your duty costs from countries that will no longer qualify for GPT? 


Axxess International can help you to determine the impact of the GPT withdrawal on your commercial imports.

Do not hesitate to contact our Customs Consulting Service to obtain more information or assistance.
