Customs classification, also known as an ‘HS code’, is a 10-digit number that identifies the product you are importing (often to a very specific degree). It is essential for the following reasons:
- identifying admissible and inadmissible goods
- calculating duty-rates
- statistical record-keeping
Canada’s tariff can be found on the CBSA’s website, however Border Bee strongly recommends contacting a customs broker for assisting in classifying your products for new importers.
