Why have I not needed this before?

Prior to CARM Release 2, importers are able to utilize their Customs Brokers import bond. After CARM Release 2, importers will no longer be able to use this option.

What is a D120 Customs Bond?

This a D120 Customs Bond will allow importers to enjoy Release Prior To Payment (RPP) privileges at the port of crossing, meaning that their goods will be released into Canada prior to paying the duties and taxes (which will instead be paid after importation).

When is CARM Release 2?

At this time, CBSA has slated Release 2 for the Spring/Summer of 2022. In order to be prepared for this transition, we encourage you to start the process of obtaining your D120 Customs Bond as soon as possible. We can help you obtain one by filling the form out above.
