CARM: CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management

The Canada Revenue Agency continues to issue the required business number (BN9). The CBSA has taken over RM account-related services.

Until October 2024:

Please register your RM in advance to avoid the storage fees, as CBSA can process it in up to 10 business days. For non-resident importers, as per our practice, this could take longer.

When you have an urgent situation, CBSA allows for the use of your Customs Broker BN/ account as a one-time exemption.

ARGO Customs Brokers can assist you when your commodities do not require a CFIA SFC food license and no other permits.

If you have an urgent shipment and your RM account is not yet ready, please contact us at Email: for assistance.
