Canada Trade Services

Our Global Trade Services (GTS) are designed to assist traders to simplify their supply chain, ensure customs compliance, avoid financial risk and save on their bottom line.

Compliance Services

GHY can assist in responding to post entry inquiries from CBSA or another Participating Government Agency (PGA), whether it is regarding SIMA (anti-dump duty), USMCA verifications, or CBSA Trade Verification Audits.
If you find a discrepancy in the information reported for a shipment, GHY can assist you with the process required to correct it with CBSA. Common discrepancies to be corrected or updated are:

  • Tariff classification;
  • Country of origin;
  • Quantity;
  • Value;
  • Free Trade Agreements, etc.
If you find a discrepancy in a range of shipments which could lead to potential penalties or interest, GHY experts can assist with voluntary disclosure to CBSA of non-compliance to avoid or reduce the potential penalties and/or interest.
If you receive a penalty from CBSA or another PGA, GHY experts can assist with filing an appeal to remove it.
GHY will file a single submission to CBSA to cover a 12-month period of shipments that need to be updated. Certain goods can require changes to import information on an ongoing basis, after importation.

  • Bulk products
  • Diverted products
  • Intercompany Transfer Values
