Customs brokers are licensed by the Canadian Border Service Agency (CBSA) to carry out customs-related responsibilities on behalf of importers. A broker’s responsibilities include, but aren’t limited to:

  • obtaining the release of imported goods;
  • paying applicable customs duty and tax; and
  • obtaining, preparing and submitting necessary supporting documentation and data.

What are the advantages to using a customs broker?
Canadian Customs rules and regulations are ever-changing and expanding to suit the global trade industry. Utilizing a customs broker ensures a compliant and smooth release process for your goods, and maximizes potential savings through the application of free trade agreements and other cost-saving mechanisms.

Having key customs information at your fingertips is often as critical as the customs release itself. Near North offers a virtual customs compliance office to keep you up to speed and in touch with key information throughout the customs process.
