webinar | Apr 01, 2023 On Demand

CARM and Its Release Phases

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) continues to accelerate its evolution and modernization through its CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) project; completely transforming the agency’s import playbook from trade compliance to risk and information management.  

In October 2024, CARM Release 2 will expand the functionalities of the CARM Client Portal, releasing electronic commercial accounting declarations, new offsetting options, electronic management of appeals and compliance actions and harmonized billing cycles.   

Through CARM, accounting and revenue management processes with CBSA will be facilitated for all importers to Canada.

Some Notable Upcoming Changes with Release 2  

Financial Security - Importers will be required to have a financial security bond, or post a cash deposit, to participate in the Release Prior to Payment program.   

Billing Cycles - New billing cycles and alignment of payment due dates will address current complexities of revenue management for businesses and CBSA.  

Commercial Accounting Declaration (CAD) - Serves as the digital document to account for imported goods into Canada, replacing the current B3/B2 forms and processing corrections and adjustments.
