In our previous post, you learned about the importance of the Canada Customs Invoice (CCI). Even though we recommend the use of the CCI form, sometimes you will have to use a commercial invoice, you need to ensure that your commercial invoice includes all information required for Customs clearance.
7 Key Elements Of A Commercial Invoice
The party that the commodities are being purchased from.
2. Importer Of Record
The party that is responsible for any applicable duties and taxes.
The location that the shipment is being delivered to.
4. Full Description Of Commodities
Including what the goods are made out of - in layman's terms.
5. Quantity And Value
The quantity of each item being shipped, with corresponding unit of measure, and a broken down value.
The currency of sale on your invoice.
7. Country of Origin
The country where the good was manufactured in, not the country they are being shipped from.
Without this basic information, the Customs clearance and delivery of your shipment may very likely be delayed until the information is obtained.
