Do You Need to Import Goods into Vancouver and Canada? ARGO Customs Can Help

Clearing customs can be a cumbersome and complex process. You need to identify the goods your importing (no, that doesn’t mean look at them and say “Yep, that’s a hammer), meaning, you need to classify the goods pursuant to the 10-digit harmonized tariff classification system. Next, you need to determine if your goods are subject to any special regulations or restrictions. Third, you need to coordinate the inspection of your goods with the appropriate authority and, once that is approved, pay your duties and taxes. Next, you need to secure shipping, and finally, you need to keep all your paperwork because the Canada Border Services Agency might audit you.

Sounds simple, right? Okay, no it isn’t. Luckily, there are customs brokers in Canada who can help you through this process.
