Last month, we provided details on the CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) digital initiative is changing how the CBSA assesses and collects duties and taxes on commercial goods imported into Canada. This was scheduled to begin on May 13, 2024. On April 19, 2024, Today, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) provided an update on its plans for the launch of the CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) digital initiative, which will modernize the collection of duties and taxes for goods imported into Canada.

CARM will launch internally at the CBSA on May 13, as planned, to advance the Agency’s compliance and enforcement efforts. However, as a result of strike vote activity now underway by the Public Service Alliance of Canada and the possible impact on the Agency’s operations in the event of a positive strike vote, it is the intention of the CBSA to reschedule the launch for trade chain partners to October 2024. This will ensure that the Agency can support partners as they start using CARM. Therefore, until the fall, trade chain partners will continue to operate as they have.

The internal launch of CARM at the CBSA, starting on May 13, 2024, will allow the Agency to advance work towards the expected benefit of better compliance. The CBSA will use CARM to identify errors and discrepancies in duties and tax submissions and begin to work with industry in these areas.

These efforts respond to a study by the Auditor General of Canada, who had estimated that as many as 20% of goods coming into Canada were misclassified, resulting in a lesser amount of duty paid.
