Table of Contents


Guidelines and General Information

1. This memorandum is a guide for Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) personnel, brokers, and importers/owners who are involved in preparing and processing various customs coding forms.

2. Accounting documents must be properly coded before they can be accepted for either manual or automated data processing. The information used to prepare these documents is obtained from invoices, cargo control data, and other sources, and is coded and placed in a designated area on the coding form referred to as a field.

Description of Forms

Form B3, Canada Customs Coding Form

3.This form is a customs document used to account for imported goods, regardless of value, destined for commercial use in Canada according to sections 6 and 7 of the Accounting for Imported Goods and Payment of Duties Regulations (SOR/86-1062).

4. The CBSA will reprint B3 forms on white paper in blue ink. However, companies may privately print B3 forms in blue or black ink according to Memorandum D17-1-11, Private Printing Policy and Procedures. Importers/brokers must apply coloured wrappers to B3 forms as follows:

Type Colour
AB and AD (LVS threshold or more)

green

AB and AD (less than LVS threshold that quote a remission order number in Field No. 26)

green

C, D, H, M, and V (account) (LVS threshold or more) blue
C, D, H, M, and V (account) (less than LVS threshold that quote a remission order number in Field No. 26) blue
C, D, H, M, and V (cash) (regardless of value)

yellow

C (one-time release prior to payment)

yellow

C, D, H, M, and V (account) (less than LVS threshold)

white

F (consolidated account) (less than LVS threshold)

salmon

AB and AD (less than LVS threshold

white (mark AB or AD on wrapper)

10, 20, 21, 22, and 30, including CADEX bonded warehouse

grey

CADEX non-bonded warehouse

gold

5. Refer to Appendices B, C, and J for instructions and format examples of Form B3, Form B3 (bonded warehouse), and Form B3 (consolidated) respectively.

Form B3B, Canada Customs Cargo Control Continuation Sheet

6. Form B3B is used together with Form B3 when there is more than one cargo control document to be acquitted by one B3 form. A copy of Form B3B can be found in Appendix D.

Form B6D, Ships' Stores Delivery Declaration

7. Form B6D is used together with Form B3, type 22, Ships' Stores, Sales to the Governor General and Diplomats. It has the declaration of the vessel's master or agent, or the airline company's agent, certifying that the goods are for use as ships' stores. It also has the border service officer's certificate that the goods were accompanied on board and sealed on the vessel or aircraft. You can find more information on ships' stores in Memorandum D4-2-1, Ships' Stores Regulations.

Information Requirements

8. It is in the best interest of brokers, importers/owners, and CBSA personnel to present accurate documents to CBSA. This allows CBSA to carry out its processing and enforcement functions and expedites release of the shipment to the importer/owner or broker.

9. All information on the coding forms must be legible and all fields must be completed according to the instructions in the appendices.

10. The B3 form package must also include all certificates, licences, permits, or other documents that may be required by another government department or agency as they apply to their acts or regulations for imported goods. However, consolidated Form B3 accounting documents (Form B3, type F) used to account for goods released under the Courier/Low Value Shipment (LVS) Program are not to include supporting documentation when the accounting document is presented to customs. Any supporting documentation (i.e., invoices, Orders in Council) are to be held at the importer's and broker's premises to allow an officer in the future to perform an audit of the records and to obtain or verify the information on which the calculation of duties was based.

11. The border services officer will review Form B3 documentation to ensure compliance with the CBSA's requirements. They will return any B3 form that does not meet the requirements to the importer/owner or broker, and where applicable, withhold release of goods. In all such cases, the border services officer will inform the importer/owner or broker of the reasons for rejection.

Documentation Requirements

12. When Form B3 is presented at a terminal office and is paid either by cash or account, only one copy is required: the CBSA copy. The official receipt for monies tendered for payment of Form B3 at automated locations is a stamped duty-paid copy of a Detailed Coding Statement (DCS) for cash entries or a Form K84, Importer/Broker Account Statement, for account entries. Both these statements are generated by the customs automated system. For details, refer to Memorandum D17-1-5, Registration, Accounting and Payment for Commercial Goods.

13. When requesting release prior to payment under a Release on Minimum Documentation (RMD) (excluding CADEX), two copies of the release documentation must be presented. The original will be retained by the CBSA for control purposes when the shipment is released and the duplicate returned to the importer/owner or broker for use with the confirming Form B3. In the case of a one-time release prior to payment, three copies of the release documentation are required. The third copy will be attached to the request from the importer/owner or broker to transact bonded operations. For more details, refer to MemorandumD1-7-1, Posting Security for Transacting Bonded Operations, and Memorandum D17-1-5.

14. Under the Courier LVS Program, approved participants can consolidate a number of shipments on Form B3, type F. This consolidation may include a number of LVS, which were released from the CBSA. Goods that are prohibited, controlled, or regulated by an Act of Parliament or a regulation made under such an Act are excluded from this program. However, the program accepts goods for which a special authority (i.e., Order in Council) applies. Goods valued at greater than the Courier LVS threshold are also excluded from this program. Consolidation of this B3 form may be made by a CBSA office, a regional consolidation, a consolidation by carrier, a consolidation by importer, or a national consolidation. For more information regarding the Courier LVS Program, refer to Memorandum D17-4-0, Courier Low Value Shipment Program.

15. Because Form B3 (bonded warehouse) is a multi-use form, the number of copies required will depend on the type. The following chart outlines this information when Form B3 is presented at a terminal office.

Form B3 Type and Wrapper Colour Copies Required Remarks
10 (grey) Form B3 for Warehouse 3 1 to CBSA
1 to warehouse control
1 to warehouse operator
13 (grey) Form B3 for Re-warehouse 3 1 to CBSA
20 (grey) Ex warehouse Form B3 for Consumption 1 to warehouse control
21 (grey) Form B3 Ex warehouse for Export 1 to warehouse operator
30 (grey) Transfer of Goods
22 (grey) Form B3 Ships' Stores, Sales to the Governor General and Diplomats 5 1 to CBSA
1 to warehouse control
1 to warehouse operator
2 to the vessel

16. At non-terminal offices, an importer's/broker's copy of the documentation is required for return with a daily notice of transactions finalized that day. The CBSA copy will be date-stamped with the date of final accounting and forwarded to the appropriate automated office.

Additional Information

17. Any questions regarding Form B3 coding instructions or format examples in this memorandum should be directed to the nearest CBSA office.

APPENDIX B

CODING INSTRUCTIONS FOR NON-WAREHOUSE AND NON-CONSOLIDATED FORM B3

The fields of Form B3 must be completed according to the following instructions.

Note: For instructions on completing Form B3, consolidated accounting document, type F, see Appendix J, and for warehouse types, see Appendix C.

Field No. 1 - Importer Name and Address

Must complete importer's name on all Form B3 types. If Form B3 has two or more pages, complete on the first page. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Show the importer's address if it does not appear on the supporting invoice.

In the "No." section of this field, show the customs business account number. This number is a standard way of identifying importing and exporting businesses, and is used in the processing of customs accounting documents. If you have one or more customs accounts, indicate the six-digit account identifier (e.g., RM0001).

Field No. 2 - Transaction Number

Must complete on all types of Form B3 when release prior to payment security is being used.

This number is 14 digits in length and contains the following:

  • (a) the first five digits represent the account security number of the importer/broker who will present the accounting document and/or pay the duties and taxes; and
  • (b) the next eight digits represent a number assigned by the importer/broker; and
  • (c) the last digit is a check digit calculated using a formula provided by the CBSA (refer to Appendix F).

Show the transaction number assigned at time of release, if applicable, on all copies of Form B3 and on the first page of the supporting documents. It must be in bar-coded format (see the following note on bar coding) on the first page of the CBSA copy of Form B3. Refer to Appendix I for bar code specifications. The typed or clearly annotated transaction number must appear on all the remaining pages of Form B3 and on the first page of the supporting documents. If the supporting document is multi-paged, the total number of attachments must also be shown on the first page. This eliminates the need to include the transaction number on each page of the supporting documents.

The transaction number must also be typed or clearly annotated on all applicable permits, certificates, and licences.

The transaction number must not be duplicated for 7 years and 3 months (6-year period plus 15 current months). Note that if a transaction is adjusted, the 7 year period plus 3 months will begin at the date of final decision.

Notes:

  • 1. All importers/brokers who have an account security number with release prior to payment privileges must submit FormB3 documentation with a bar-coded transaction number.
  • 2. Importers/brokers having only "uncertified cheque" security must assign a transaction number to their accounting documentation. However, it is not mandatory that the transaction number be bar-coded. For all unsecured transactions (i.e.,"cash" transactions), the CBSA will assign a bar-coded transaction number.

The transaction number field on unsecured Form B3s and Form B3s type M, must be left blank because Form B3 will be numbered by customs upon presentation. Transaction numbers applied by importers and brokers will not be valid for mail shipments. Customs will apply a cash transaction number from the local numbering series.

Field No. 3 - Type

Must complete on all B3 form types. If Form B3 has two or more pages, the B3 form type is to be shown on the first page.

Code B3 form types alphabetically as follows:

  • AB - Confirming Form B3 (final accounting) for goods released on minimum documentation.
  • AD - Confirming sight Form B3 (interim accounting) for goods released on minimum documentation but where imperfect documentation has been provided.
  • C - Form B3 (final accounting) for:
    • (a) release of goods prior to the payment of duties and taxes (account); or
    • (b) release of goods after the payment of duties and taxes (cash).
  • D - Sight Form B3 (interim accounting) for goods as in type C above but where imperfect documentation has been provided.
  • F - Form B3 consolidated entry for goods released under the Courier/LVS Program. (See Appendix J for B3 form completion instructions.)
  • H - Supplementary Form B3—to voluntarily declare goods reported, but not accounted for at the time of final accounting (for example, invoiced line inadvertently omitted on Form B3) or for overages.
  • M - Confirming Form B3 (final accounting) for release of postal goods.
  • V - Voluntary Form B3—used by an importer/owner to voluntarily declare goods that were delivered without official customs release.

The date of direct shipment (Field No. 16) equals the date of presentation for exchange purposes.

Applied duty rates are those in effect on the date of presentation of the V-type accounting document.

Field No. 4 - Office Number

Must complete for all Form B3 types.

If Form B3 has two or more pages, complete on the first page.

Show the CBSA office of release code number. (See Appendix H, List 1(a) or 1(b) for the code number of the CBSA office responsible for the release of the goods.)

For Forms B3 accounting for postal shipments, show the CBSA office code number where the goods are being accounted for.

Field No. 5 - GST Registration Number

If a Business Number (BN) is used in Field No. 1, this field may be left blank.

Field No. 6 - Payment Code

Show an "I" on the first page of Form B3 if an importer has posted security and the goods are released under a customs broker's account security number.

In such cases, the daily Form K84, Importer/Broker Account Statement, will be produced for the broker, separating transactions for the importers identified above.

Field No. 7 - Mode of Transport

Complete for all shipments valued at greater than CAN$2500 exported from the United States. Leave blank for types H, M, and V. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Show the code for the mode of transport by which the goods arrived in Canada. Valid codes are as follows:

Field No. 8 - Port of Unlading

Complete for all marine shipments valued at greater than CAN$2500 exported from the United States. (See Appendix H, List1(a) or 1(b) for the code number of the port of unlading.)

Leave blank for types F, H, M, and V.

Field No. 9 - Total Value for Duty

Must complete for all types of Form B3. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Add each of the classification line (Field No. 37) value for duty amounts to obtain total value for duty of the shipment in Canadian dollars, and round the total to the nearest dollar. (Do not include a decimal point.)

If Form B3 has two or more pages, complete only on the first page.

Field No. 10 - Sub-header Number

Must complete on the first page of each sub-header for all types of Form B3.

Leave blank on any subsequent pages unless a change occurs to the content of the sub-header fields (i.e., vendor name, countries, tariff treatment, direct shipment date, currency code, time limit).

Sub-header numbers must be assigned in sequence from 1 to 999.

Note: When an additional sub-header must be prepared, all the sub-header fields must be completed and not just those fields which are different from the previous sub-header.

Field No. 11 - Vendor Name

Must complete on the first page of each sub-header for all types of Form B3. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

If the goods are invoiced from the United States, show the name, three-digit state code as listed in Appendix H, and the five-digit zip code of the vendor or consignor of the goods as they appear on the supporting invoice(s).

Each new vendor must be shown on a new sub-header.

Show the name of the vendor or the consignor of the goods as it appears on the supporting invoice(s). Do not abbreviate the name. Use the same name format consistently on all B3 forms.

Where the goods are shipped from one country and invoiced (i.e., sold or consigned) from another, show the vendor's name of the actual seller or consignor; for example, goods shipped from Nippon Textiles of Tokyo, Japan and invoiced from Textile Exporters Inc. of New York, US, show the vendor's name as Textile Exporters Inc.

If the goods are invoiced from a country other than the United States, but are exported from the United States, indicate the name of the foreign vendor followed by the state code and zip code of the US exporter.

Field No. 12 - Country of Origin

Must complete on the first page of each sub-header for all types of Form B3. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Show the three-digit alphabetic state code if the country of origin is the United States. Show a two-digit alphabetic International Organization for Standardization (ISO) country code if the country of origin is other than the United States. Refer to the list of country/state codes in Appendix H.

In the case of identical goods from multiple countries of origin, each of which is entitled to the same tariff treatment, allocate an estimated quantity and value of the imported goods on a proportionate basis according to country of origin.

Each new country or state must be shown on a new sub-header.

Field No. 13 - Place of Export

Must complete on the first page of each sub-header for all types of Form B3. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Show the three-digit alphabetic state code if the country of export is the United States. If the goods were exported from a US foreign trade zone, show the appropriate code for that zone. Show the two-digit alphabetic ISO country code if the country of export is other than the United States. Refer to the list of country/state/foreign trade zone codes in Appendix H. Each new foreign trade zone, state, or country must be shown on a new sub-header.

Field No. 14 - Tariff Treatment

Must complete on the first page of each sub-header for all types of Form B3. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Colombia Tariff 26

The use of code 10 for the United States Tariff treatment, code 11 for the Mexico Tariff treatment, code 12 for the Mexico-United States Tariff treatment, code 14 for Chile Tariff treatment or code 21 for Costa Rica Tariff treatment is permissible only under two circumstances. The first most common situation is when the importer/owner or broker is making a declaration that the imported goods originate and that the importer/owner or broker is in possession of a valid NAFTA, CCFTA or CCRFTA Certificate of Origin, as the case may be, which covers the goods being imported. The second situation is when the importer/owner or broker is importing certain non-originating textile goods under a tariff preference level and has a statement certifying that the goods have met the conditions set out in the Textile and Apparel Extension of Benefit Order. Deliberate use of these codes when the goods are not entitled to such tariff treatments may result in enforcement action.

Each new tariff treatment must be shown on a new sub-header.

Refer to the Customs Tariff for information on the applicability of these tariff treatments.

Field No. 15 - U.S. Port of Exit

Complete on the first page of each sub-header on Form B3, types AB, AD, C, and D, for shipments valued at greater than CAN$2500 exported from the United States. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

US port of exit is defined as the "US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) port at which or nearest to which the land surface carrier transporting the merchandise crosses the border of the United States into Canada, or in the case of exportation by vessel or air, the US CBP port where the merchandise is loaded on the vessel or aircraft which is to carry the merchandise to Canada."

Show the four-digit port of exit code as indicated in Appendix H, List 6.

Field No. 16 - Direct Shipment Date

Must complete on the first page of each sub-header for all types of Form B3 if the currency code is other than Canadian dollars. May be left blank if currency code is Canadian dollars. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Must complete on the first sub-header for shipments valued at greater than CAN$2500 exported from the United States. It is acceptable to show valid amounts on each sub-header or to show a total amount on the first page. Do not leave the first sub-header blank. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Leave blank for types H, M, and V.

Show the total freight charges, to the nearest Canadian dollar, to transport the imported goods from the place of direct shipment in the US to the consignee in Canada. A table may be used to assess freight charges. In cases where no freight was paid, such as when the owner uses his or her own transportation to pick up the goods, an estimated typical case should be shown.

Field No. 20 - Release Date

Leave blank. (Excluding type F, see Appendix J.)

Field No. 21 - Line

Must complete on all types of Form B3.

Enter the sequential value for the classification line each time a classification number is assigned. Each occurrence of a classification number must be assigned a unique line number regardless of the number of rates or detail lines required to display it.

Line numbers may not be skipped or duplicated within Form B3, regardless of the number of sub-headers.

Field No. 22 - Description

Show all references, such as D Memorandum numbers, value and classification ruling numbers, and import permit numbers. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Must show the reason for the use of sight Form B3 documents in this field.

For goods subject to the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), importers not enrolled in the Customs Self-Assessment (CSA) program must clearly show the description of the goods. The description must conform to the written notification provided by an officer of the CBSA.

For goods subject to the SIMA, importers enrolled in the CSA program must provide, upon request and within 21 days, documents which clearly show the description of the goods. The description must conform to the written notification provided by an officer of the CBSA.

Importers may be assessed an administrative monetary penalty if they fail to provide the required description as outlined in the written notification provided by an officer of the CBSA for any goods subject to SIMA.

Field No. 24 - Previous Transaction Number

Leave blank on all types of Form B3, except type H.

Field No. 25 - Previous Transaction Line

Leave blank on all types of Form B3.

Field No. 26 - Special Authority

Complete on each classification line for all types of Form B3, if applicable. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see AppendixJ.)

Leave blank on each classification line where an Order in Council (OIC), other than a remission order, reduces or removes duties on specified goods.

When the owner is authorized by OIC to import goods under special conditions, show the OIC number in this field. Show the number in the formats indicated below:

  • (a) Orders in Council submitted to the Governor in Council by Treasury Board, e.g., Order in Council P.C. 1973-1/82, January 9, 1973, must be shown as 73-1-82.
  • (b) Orders in Council submitted to the Governor in Council by the department concerned, e.g., Order in Council P.C.1985-277, January 31, 1985, must be shown as 85-277.
  • (c) Duty Deferral, e.g., 87-016W0001.
  • (d) Exporter Distribution Centre (GST) special authority code "1999 - 0000" - relieves GST when authorized by the CBSA.

(For more information, refer to Memorandum D7-4-1, Duties Relief Program.)

If the OIC number contains an oblique stroke (/), this must be shown as a hyphen (-): e.g., Order in Council 67-23/261 must be shown as 67-23-261.

Where Form B3 for goods entered under an OIC contains two or more lines of calculations, such as a remission Form B3 for goods entered under several classification numbers, the OIC number must be shown again with each new classification line.

In any case where an OIC number is amended, the original number must be quoted in this field. That is, the number of the amending Order is to be ignored.

The benefits of the United States Tariff and the Mexico Tariff may, under the Textile and Apparel Extension of Benefit Order, be extended to certain textile and apparel goods which are cut and sewn or otherwise assembled (or woven or knit) in the United States or Mexico from fabric (or yarn or fibre) produced or obtained in a non NAFTA country. When accounting documents are presented for such goods, the appropriate special authority number must be shown. In the event an Order in Council applies to these goods, the number for that Order would take precedence over the special authority number used to identify the textile and apparel goods referenced above.

Field No. 27 - Classification Number

Must complete on all types of Form B3. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Show the correct classification number as indicated in the Customs Tariff for each commodity included in the shipment covered by Form B3.

The first six digits represent the International Harmonized System Code, the seventh and eighth digits are subdivisions for customs purposes, and the remaining two digits represent a statistical suffix.

A decimal point must be placed after the fourth, sixth, and eighth digits (e.g., 1234.56.78.90).

Field No. 28 - Tariff Code

Complete on all types of Form B3 if the conditions specified in the Chapter 99 (special classification provisions) tariff item apply. Indicate only the first four digits of the tariff item (e.g., 9923). (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Field No. 29 - Quantity

Complete on each classification line for all types of Form B3, in the unit of measure required by the Customs Tariff. (For FormB3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Leave blank if no unit of measure is applied from the Customs Tariff or to any excise tax rates.

If a quantity is required for excise tax in a unit of measure different from that specified in the Customs Tariff, the quantity required for excise tax should be indicated on the next Form B3 line. The line number must not be completed for this line.

If only one quantity applies to a classification line, it must be shown on the first detail line. However, this quantity may be repeated on subsequent detail lines.

Field No. 30 - Unit of Measure

Complete on each classification line for all types of Form B3 as specified in the Customs Tariff.

Leave blank if no unit of measure is applied from the Customs Tariff or to any excise tax rates.

As a result of Customs Tariff requirements, only metric alphabetic codes can be used. Consequently, imperial measures indicated on an invoice must be converted to metric prior to completion of Form B3. Refer to metric conversion tables in Appendix E.

If a unit of measure is required for excise tax and is different from that specified in the Customs Tariff, the unit of measure required for excise tax should be completed on the next Form B3 line. The line number must not be completed for this line.

If only one unit of measure applies to a classification line, it must be shown on the first detail line. However, this unit of measure may be repeated on subsequent detail lines.

Refer to the list of unit of measure codes in Appendix H.

Field No. 31 - Value for Duty Code

Complete on each classification line for all types of Form B3. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

The first-digit code number (relationship)

Explanation

  • 1 The vendor and purchaser are not related firms as defined in section 45(3) of the Customs Act.
  • 2 The vendor and purchaser are related firms as defined in section 45(3) of the Customs Act.

The second-digit code number (valuation method used)

Explanation

  • 3 Price paid or payable without adjustments (section 48 of the Customs Act)
  • 4 Price paid or payable with adjustments (section 48 of the Customs Act)
  • 5 Transaction value of identical goods (section 49 of the Customs Act)

Example: If the vendor and purchaser are related firms and the value for duty is the transaction value of similar goods, code 26 is shown.

Field No. 32 - SIMA Code

Complete on all types of Form B3 for goods subject to an action under the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA) and/or a Surtax Order. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Identify the type of SIMA disposition applicable to the goods being imported as well as the mode of payment in the following manner:

The first digit will be the SIMA assessment type:

  • 1 - Goods are not subject to a finding by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) and/or a surtax order under the Customs Tariff;
  • 2 - Only applies to goods covered by a price undertaking offered by all or substantially all exporters of the subject goods and accepted by the Commissioner;
  • 3 - Only applies to goods subject to a preliminary determination commencing on the day the determination was made and ending on the day the Commissioner causes the investigation to be terminated or the day the CITT makes an order or finding;
  • 4 - Goods are subject to a CITT finding. There is no amount of anti-dumping duty and/or countervailing duty owing which results in a nil payment;
  • 5 - Goods are subject to a CITT finding and/or a surtax order. Anti-dumping duty and/or countervailing duty, and/or a surtax, amount is payable.

Note: When goods are subject to a CITT finding and/or a surtax order and SIMA duty and/or a surtax amount are covered by a remission order, SIMA code 50 should be used.

The second digit will indicate a nil assessment or the payment mode:

  • 0 - Nil payment;
  • 1 - Cash;
  • 2 - Bond (used only for provisional duty or during the time of an expedited review)
  • Notes: The following SIMA Code combinations are the only ones that are valid:

    • 10 Use to identify non-subject goods when splitting the line of a Form B3 to separate goods of the same classification from goods that are subject to a CITT finding
    • 20 Use for goods covered by a price undertaking
    • 30 Use for goods where the provisional duty assessment is nil
    • 31 Use for goods where the provisional duty assessment is covered by cash
    • 32 Use for goods where the provisional duty assessment is covered by a SIMA bond
    • 40 Use for subject goods where the SIMA duty assessment is nil
    • 51 Use for goods where the SIMA duty assessment and/or the surtax amount is covered by cash
    • 52 Use for subject goods under an expedited review where the SIMA duty assessment is covered by a SIMA bond
    • 50 Use for subject goods where the SIMA duty assessment is covered by a valid OIC number, which must be entered in Field No. 26

Importers may be assessed an administrative monetary penalty (AMP) if they fail to provide the required code for any goods subject to SIMA.

Field No. 33 - Rate of Customs Duty

Must complete on each classification line for all types of Form B3 if a rate of customs duty applies. (For Form B3, type F requirements, see Appendix J.)

Form B3 - Format Examples and Explanations

The examples included in this section are designed to provide importers/brokers with essential information about the various Form B3 format requirements. These examples depict typical, not actual transactions.

Note: The rates of duty, GST, and excise taxes, as well as the rates of exchange used for calculation and testing purposes on the examples are not necessarily currently in effect. Therefore, while the actual coding on the examples is correct, information such as tariff rates and tax rates should be verified by checking the Customs Tariff, the Excise Tax Act, and other reference sources to ensure accuracy. Bar codes shown on Form B3 examples are for illustration purposes only.

Forms B3 and E29B, for temporary importations

EXAMPLE 1

Type AB - Confirming Form B3

This example shows the format to be used to complete a simple Form B3, type AB when accounting for goods released on minimum documentation.

EXAMPLE 2

Type C - Perfect Form B3

This example shows the format to be used to complete a simple Form B3, type C.

EXAMPLE 3

Type D - Sight Form B3

This example shows the format to be used when an importer/owner prepares a sight Form B3 because fully satisfactory documentation cannot be submitted. The sight deposit amount must be shown in Field No. 43 and added into total duty (Field No. 47). The reason for the sight document is shown in Field No. 22 on the line following the last line accounting for the goods. The time limit must be shown in Field No. 18.

EXAMPLE 4

Type AD - Confirming sight Form B3

This example shows the format to be used when accounting for goods released on minimum documentation where a sight deposit applies. The sight deposit amount must be shown in Field No. 43 and added into the total duty (Field No. 47). The reason for the sight document is shown in Field No. 22 on the line following the last line accounting for the goods. The time limit must be shown in Field No. 18.

EXAMPLE 5

Type V - Voluntary (bona fide)

This example shows the format to be used by an importer/owner who has come forward and voluntarily declared goods that were delivered to him without the benefit of CBSA clearance. The importer/owner has also produced invoices for this shipment, and therefore, all the fields on Form B3 can be correctly completed. A brief statement of the circumstances is shown in the body of Form B3.

EXAMPLE 6

Type V - Voluntary (investigation)

This example shows the format to be used when a voluntary or assessment Form B3 is prepared as a result of a CBSA file or ruling: in this case, an Investigation Division file. Those fields for which the required information is not available or is not applicable must be left blank (e.g., Field No. 45, "Cargo Control Number"). The file relating to Form B3 is shown in the description field and a brief statement of the circumstances is shown in the body of Form B3.

EXAMPLE 7

Type H - Supplementary Form B3

This example shows the format to be used to voluntarily account for goods previously reported but not accounted for at the time of final accounting: for example, to account for a line on an invoice that was inadvertently omitted on a previous Form B3. Field No. 24, "Previous Transaction Number" is to indicate the transaction number of the previous Form B3. No cargo control number is required in Field No. 45, "Cargo Control Number." The release date must be shown in the body of Form B3.

EXAMPLE 8

Multiple sub-headers (diplomatic goods)

This example shows the format to be used when a change occurs to the content of the sub-header (e.g., vendor name). All fields within the sub-header must be completed on each new page as well as the appropriate fields on the related classification line. Sub-header fields should never be completed on new pages if a new sub-header is not applicable. Note that in any situation where multiple pages apply, trailer information in Field Nos. 43 to 51 should only be completed on the final Form B3 page.

EXAMPLE 8 - cont

The certificate referred to in Field No. 22 is one attested to by a signing officer of the embassy or consulate, declaring the goods to be for official use and not for sale.

EXAMPLE 9

Chapter 99 - Special classification provisions

This example shows the format to be used when a special classification provision of Chapter 99 of the Customs Tariff is applicable. In Field No. 27 indicate the classification number for the goods from Chapters 1 97 of the Schedule to the Customs Tariff. Indicate only the first four digits of the Chapter 99 tariff item in Field No. 28 (i.e., tariff item 9967.00.00 is indicated as 9967). In this case the normal rate of duty equal to 6% is lowered to a free rate by the Chapter 99 tariff item. GST is still payable unless the goods qualify for the use of a GST status code.

EXAMPLE 10

Packaged manufactured tobacco with package exceeding 200 grams

For tobacco of Heading 24.03 imported in packages greater than 200 grams, the importer is required to manually calculate the excise duty rate and the amount. Therefore, if an importer brings in 20 packages weighing 454 grams each, the quantity of 20 would be entered in field 29; while the 44.00 would be coded into field 34. The importer must then calculate the total excise duties owed and enter that amount into field 40. The excise duty per package is calculated by multiplying $2.8925 (the rate for each 50 gram increment or fraction of 50 grams contained in a package) by the number of units of 50 grams, including fractions of 50 gram, in each package. In this case there are 10 units of 50 grams in each package. Thus the excise duty amount per package would be $28.925 ($2.8925 times 10) and the excise duty payable on the total shipment of 20 packages would be $578.50 ($28.925 times 20).

EXAMPLE 11

Packaged manufactured tobacco

As of July 30, 2008, only one rate of excise duty is to be applied on each entry line. Although this legislative change concerns an adjustment to the excise duty for "packaged" manufactured tobacco of Heading 24.03, for systems validation purposes the excise tax rate field 34 will be used to validate the excise duty amount owing. Therefore, for "packaged" manufactured tobacco of this Heading, the excise tax rate field must be completed with the applicable excise duty rates that apply to E codes E37-41 as follow:

Package size Rate

Up to but not exceeding 50 grams

$2.8925

Greater than 50 grams but not exceeding 100 grams

$5.7850

Greater than 100 grams but not exceeding 150 grams

$8.6775

Greater than 150 grams but not exceeding 200 grams

$11.5700

EXAMPLE 12

Additional duty on cigar ($0.067 per cigar)

As of January 1, 2008 the excise duty rate on cigars is $18.50 per 1000 cigars (Section 4 of Schedule 1 to the Excise Act, 2001); and the additional duty rate is the greater of $0.067 per cigar or the 67% of the duty-paid value with the later meaning, in respect of imported cigars, the value of the cigars as it would be determined for the purpose of calculating an ad valorem duty on the cigars in accordance with the Customs Act, whether or not the cigars are subject to ad valorem duty, plus the amount of any duty imposed on the cigars under section 42 of the Excise Act, 2001 and section 20 of the Customs Tariff. In this example the rate of $0.067 per cigar is greater than the rate of 67% of the duty-paid value.

EXAMPLE 13

Additional duty on cigar (duty-paid value)

In this example, the additional excise duty on cigars applies and is calculated at the rate of 67% of the duty-paid value (see previous example for the definition of duty-paid value)

EXAMPLE 14

Cigarettes containing tobacco 1361 g per thousand

The excise duty rate is $0.425 for each five cigarettes of fraction of five cigarettes contained in any package as per section 1(b) of Schedule 1 to the Excise Act, 2001. For standard package sizes (i.e. packages of 20 or 25 cigarettes), this amounts to $85.00 per 1000 cigarettes.

If a cigarette exceeds 102mm in length, each portion of 76 mm or less is considered to be a separate cigarette (Section 2 of the Excise Act, 2001); therefore, the quantity reported should reflect the each portion of 76 mm or less.

For classification line 1, nine cigarettes not exceeding 102mm in length are being imported. Therefore, a quantity of nine is reported and the rate of $85.00 per 1000 applies.

For classification line 2, nine cigarettes exceeding 102mm in length (i.e. 110 mm) are being imported. In this case, each cigarette contains 2 portions of 76mm or less. Therefore, the quantity is multiplied by 2 as shown in the example on classification line 2, for the calculation of the excise duty.

EXAMPLE 15

Excise taxes and special levies

This example shows the format to be used when accounting for automobiles with various excise tax rates. When different excise tax rates apply, a new classification line must be completed for each line. In this example the special levy does not apply on line 1, only the $100 for the air conditioner. A listing of vehicles, associated fuel-efficiency ratings and the formula for the calculation of the weighted fuel consumption (in a case where a specific brand is not listed) can be found either at the CRA or NRCan Web site at http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/E/pub/et/etsl64/README.html or http://oee.nrcan.gc.ca/transportation/tools/fuelratings/fuel-consumption.cfm; automobiles that have a weighted average fuel consumption rating of 13 or more litres per 100 kilometres will be subject to the excise tax at the following rates:

  • at least 13 but less than 14 litres per 100 kilometres, $1000;
  • at least 14 but less than 15 litres per 100 kilometres, $2000;
  • at least 15 but less than 16 litres per 100 kilometres, $3000; and
  • 16 or more litres per 100 kilometres, $4000.

EXAMPLE 16

SIMA assessment (payment)

This example shows the format to be used when the goods are subject to SIMA assessment, and payment of SIMA duty is made. The SIMA code in Field No. 32 shows 31; the first digit indicates that provisional duty is being assessed and the second digit indicates that the amount is being paid in cash. The export price has been determined to be the selling price on the invoice and is 5¢ each or $50 for the shipment. The normal value has been determined to be 10¢ each or $100 for the shipment. The provisional anti dumping duty is the amount by which the export price is lower than the normal value, in this case 5¢ per unit times the number of units released during the provisional period (1000 × 5¢ = $50). Value for tax in Field No. 41 must include the SIMA assessment amount completed in Field No. 39. Total SIMA assessment must be included in Field No. 48.

EXAMPLE 17

SIMA assessment (deferred by bond)

This example shows the format to be used when the goods are subject to SIMA assessment, and a bond has been posted for deferral of payment of the SIMA assessment. The SIMA code in Field No. 32 shows 32; the first digit indicates that provisional duty is being assessed and the second digit indicates the payment is deferred by a SIMA bond (See Memorandum D14 1 5 for details respecting use of the SIMA bond). Provisional anti dumping duty is the difference between normal value and export price (see previous example for details). Value for tax in Field No. 41 does not include the SIMA assessment amount which is shown in Field No. 39. The total SIMA assessment amount in Field No. 48 is nil.

Note that the bond number is shown in Field No. 22.

EXAMPLE 18

Canadian goods repaired abroad without warranty in a country other than the United States, Mexico, Chile, Israel or another CIFTA beneficiary, or Costa Rica

This example shows the format to be used when Canadian goods are returned after being repaired without warranty in a country other than the United States, Mexico, Chile, Israel or another CIFTA beneficiary, or Costa Rica. The first classification line shows the value of the goods at the time of import less the value of the repairs. Duty and GST are relieved under the Canadian Goods Abroad Program. Indicate 98-01-0101 in Field No. 26, "Special Authority." The second classification line shows the value of the repairs. Duty and taxes must be calculated for this line in the normal manner. Total value for duty in Field No. 9 includes the value of the goods at the time of export as well as the value of the repairs.

EXAMPLE 19

Importation of goods repaired free under warranty in a country other than the United States, Mexico, Chile, Israel or another CIFTA beneficiary, or Costa Rica

This example shows the format to be used when goods are returned after being repaired under warranty in a country other than the United States, Mexico, Chile, Israel or another CIFTA beneficiary, or Costa Rica.

  • (a) The first classification line is the good's Canadian value at time of export meaning the import value less the value of the repairs, additions, or work abroad. Duties including GST are relieved on this amount; and
  • (b) The second classification line, with the same classification number, is the value of the repairs, equipment additions, or work done abroad. Duties including GST are payable on this amount. However, in this example, the goods are repaired under warranty and are not subject to GST. Indicate GST status code 66 in Field No. 35.

Total value for duty in Field No. 9 includes the value of the goods at the time of export, as well as the value of the repairs. The value for duty code in Field No. 31 will be "19" or "29," as appropriate, for the residual method of valuation.

EXAMPLE 20

Importation of goods repaired without warranty in the United States, Mexico, Chile, Israel or another CIFTA beneficiary, or Costa Rica

This example shows the format to be used when Canadian goods are returned after being repaired in the United States, Mexico, Chile, Israel or another CIFTA beneficiary, or Costa Rica where the goods are not under warranty. Indicate the classification number of the goods in Chapters 1 97 of the Customs Tariff in Field No. 27. Indicate "9992" in Field No. 28. The goods and repairs are duty free because they qualify under a Chapter 99 special classification provision (tariff item 9992.00.00), but the goods are subject to GST on the value of the repair that appears in Field 37 of the classification line. The value for duty code in Field No. 31 will be "19" or "29," as appropriate, for the residual method of valuation.

EXAMPLE 21

Importation of goods repaired free under warranty in the United States, Mexico, Chile, Israel or another CIFTA beneficiary, or Costa Rica

This example shows the format to be used when Canadian goods are returned after being repaired free under warranty in the United States, Mexico, Chile, Israel or another CIFTA beneficiary, or Costa Rica. The goods and the repairs are duty free because they qualify under a Chapter 99 special classification provision (tariff item 9992.00.00) and are not subject to GST because they qualify under GST status code 66. Indicate the classification number of the goods in Chapters 1 97 of the Customs Tariff in Field No. 27. Indicate "9992" in Field No. 28. The value for duty code in Field No. 31 will be "19" or "29," as appropriate, for the residual method of valuation.

EXAMPLE 22

Partial remission (flat rate per month)

This example shows the format to be used when an importer/owner is entitled to partial remission of GST based on a flat rate per month as specified in the remission order. The duty and taxes payable are not related to the value for duty or to the rate of duty payable under the particular classification number. Indicate "9993" in Field No. 28.

EXAMPLE 23

Repayment of drawback, refund, or remission

This example shows the format to be used when documenting the importation of goods once exported from Canada and are re imported (heading No. 9813, 9814, or 9992) and on which the customs duties, refunds or drawbacks allowed at the time of exportation, must be repaid. In Field No. 26, insert special authority number 50 0000. In Field No. 38, "Customs Duties" or Field No. 42, "GST," insert the amount being repaid. The statement shown on the body of the example is required.

EXAMPLE 24

Duty Deferral Program

This example shows the format to be used when goods are imported under the Duty Deferral Program. In this case, 60% of the imported goods are subject to remission of customs duty only. The remaining 40% of the goods have to be shown on the first classification line on which regular customs duty and GST must be paid. The second line accounts for 60% of the goods which are entitled to remission of 100% of the customs duty. The GST is not remitted under this program. Depending on the authorization granted to the importer of the goods, the amount of relief may vary. The relief amount will be indicated on the authorization. For further information, refer to Memorandum D7 4 1, Duties Relief Program.

EXAMPLE 25

Imported Spirits for Blending Remission Order

This example shows the format to be used when remitting partial duty under the Imported Spirits for Blending Remission Order. This Order remits customs duty payable equivalent to excise duty on spirits, wine, or flavouring materials having a spirit content, imported into Canada for the purpose of being blended in a distillery with spirits in bond. Indicate the OIC number "83‑2525" in Field No. 26. For more information, see Memorandum D8‑2‑18, Imported Spirits for Blending Remission Order.

EXAMPLE 26

Partial remission of GST (1/60)

This example shows the format to be used when goods are duty free, but are subject to relief of GST on a proportional (1/60) basis only. Note that only one classification line is required. The value for currency conversion must be completed in Field No. 36. If the goods are subject to GST, it is calculated on the value for tax divided by 60 multiplied by the time limit (in this example, $150,000 ÷ 60 × 3(months) × 5% = $375.00). For more information, refer to Memorandum D8 1 1, Temporary Importation (Tariff Item No. 9993.00.00) Regulations.

EXAMPLE 27

Packing (duty and goods and services tax)

This example shows the format to be used when duty and GST are collected for packing on a separate classification line. Note that the line accounting for packing follows the line accounting for the goods to which it relates.

EXAMPLE 28

Canadian goods returned

This example shows the format to be used when Canadian goods are re imported into Canada. The shipper should be shown in Field No. 11 for vendor. Field No. 16, "Direct Shipment Date," is not required. Field No. 17, "Currency Code," must show the code for Canadian currency. The value for duty code in Field 31 will be "19" or "29," as appropriate, for the residual method of valuation.

Note: GST may apply to goods classified under tariff No. 9813.00.00. Use code 66 only if no GST is payable. Refer to example 21 for more information.

EXAMPLE 29

Proportional duty (1/120) - Vessels

This example shows the format to be used when goods are subject to a remission on a proportional 1/120 basis. Order in Council 88 0357 must be quoted in Field No. 26, "Special Authority." The Headquarters' authorization number (e.g., CCV 88/999) must be quoted in Field No. 22, "Description." Form B3 must be accompanied by a copy of the Headquarters' authorization. The entire amount may be accounted for on Form B3, but if payments are made on a monthly basis, they should be accounted for on Form B2 with reference to the original Form B3.

EXAMPLE 30

Computer Carrier Media Remission Order - Dutiable import

This example shows the format to be used when dutiable software is imported. The value of the carrier medium and the reproduction service is accounted for on line 1. The value of the data or instructions contained on the carrier medium is accounted for on line 2. The Computer Carrier Media Remission Order relieves the duty but GST applies. See Memorandum D8‑3‑15, Computer Carrier Media Remission Order, for further information.

EXAMPLE 31

Forms B3 and E29B, for temporary importations

This example shows the format to be used when goods are temporarily imported and are subject to full relief of duty but only partial (1/60) relief of GST. GST is calculated on 1/60th of the value for duty multiplied by the number of months the goods will remain in Canada (i.e., $1000 ÷ 60 × 3(months) = $50). They must be documented on Forms E29B and B3 and the forms are cross referenced.

This number is a standard way of identifying importing and exporting businesses, and is used in the processing of CBSA accounting documents. If you have one or more CBSA accounts, indicate the six-digit account identifier (e.g., RM0001).

Field No.2 - Transaction Number

Must complete on all types of Form B3 when release prior to payment security is being used.

This number is 14 digits in length and includes the following:

  • (a)   the first five digits represent the account security number of the importer/broker who will present the accounting document and/or pay the duties and taxes; and
  • (b)   the next eight digits represent a number assigned by the importer/broker; and
  • (c)   the last digit is a check digit calculated using a formula provided by customs (refer to Appendix F).

The typed or clearly written transaction number must appear on all the remaining pages of Form B3 and on the first page of the supporting documents. If the supporting document is multi-paged, the total number of attachments must also be shown on the first page. This eliminates the need to include the transaction number on each page of the supporting documents.

The transaction number must also be typed or clearly written on all applicable permits, certificates, and licences.

The transaction number must not be duplicated for 7 years and 3 months (a 6-year period plus 15 current months). Note that if a transaction is adjusted, the 7-year period plus 3 months will begin at the date of final decision.

Notes:

  • 5 - Goods are subject to a CITT finding and/or a surtax order, anti-dumping duty and/or countervailing duty, and/or a surtax, amount is payable.
  • Note: When goods are subject to a CITT finding and/or a surtax order and SIMA duty and/or a surtax amount are covered by a remission order, SIMA Code 50 should be used.

The second digit will indicate a nil assessment or the payment mode:

  • 0 - Nil payment;
  • 1 - Cash;
  • 2 - Bond (used only for provisional duty or during the time of an expedited review)
  • Note: The following SIMA Code combinations are the only ones that are valid:
    • 10  Use to identify non-subject goods when splitting the line of a Form B3 to separate goods of the same classification from goods that are subject to a CITT finding
    • 20  Use for goods covered by a price undertaking
    • 30  Use for goods where the provisional duty assessment is nil
    • 31  Use for goods where the provisional duty assessment is covered by cash
    • 32  Use for goods where the provisional duty assessment is covered by a SIMA bond
    • 40  Use for subject goods where the SIMA duty assessment is nil
    • 51  Use for goods where the SIMA duty assessment and/or the surtax amount is covered by cash
    • 52  Use for subject goods under an expedited review where the SIMA duty assessment is covered by a SIMA bond
    • 50  Use for subject goods where the SIMA duty assessment is covered by a valid OIC number, which must be entered in Field No. 26

Form B3 (Bonded Warehouse) - Format Examples and Explanations

This section contains examples of Form B3 illustrating typical bonded warehouse and ex-warehouse formats. These examples depict typical, not actual transactions. An index is provided to assist anyone completing a B3 coding form to find an example of the type of warehouse transaction to be prepared. If the required format is not shown in this index, check the index in Appendix B. Form B3 formats for the body and most fields of Forms B3 and Form B3 (Bonded Warehouse) are similar, especially for types 20 to 22 ex-warehouse B3 forms.

Note: The rates of duty, GST, and excise taxes as well as the rates of exchange used for calculating and testing purposes on the examples are not necessarily currently in effect. Therefore, while the actual coding on the examples is correct, information such as tariff rates and tax rates should be verified by checking the Customs Tariff, the Excise Tax Act, and other reference sources to ensure accuracy. Bar codes shown on Form B3 examples are for illustration purposes only.

The examples have been set forth in the following order:

Example No. Format
1 Type 10 - Warehouse
2 Type 10 - Warehouse, goods consigned to order in care of bank
3 Type 10 - Warehouse, goods deemed exported
4 Type 13 - Re-warehouse
5

Type 20 - Ex-warehouse, consumption

6 Type 20 - Ex-warehouse, remission

18

Type 30 - Transfer of ownership and goods to another CBSA office

EXAMPLE 1

Type 10 - Warehouse

This example shows the format to be used when goods are entered into a bonded warehouse. As the goods are being warehoused, it is necessary to supply the cargo control number in Field No. 45 and also provide the total value for duty for the goods in Field No. 9. The time the goods may remain in the warehouse is shown in Field No. 18. Note that duty and tax calculations are not to be completed for this Form B3 type.

 

EXAMPLE 2

Type 10 - Warehouse, goods consigned to order in care of bank

This example shows the format to be used when the goods are consigned to order, and a bank keeps the title to the goods until the purchaser pays for them. It is permissible for the goods to be warehoused into the customs bonded warehouse owned by the purchaser. When the purchaser pays the bank, title to the goods will be transferred to the purchaser.

EXAMPLE 3

Type 10 - Warehouse, goods deemed exported

This example shows the format to be used when goods are being warehoused to claim drawback under subsection 89(3) of the Customs Tariff, and are destined for exportation. This Form B3, type 10 must be used as supporting documentation for Form K32, Drawback Claim.

EXAMPLE 4

Type 13 - Re-warehouse

This example shows the format to be used each time goods are re-warehoused following a transfer of the goods and/or ownership. The previous transaction number and the affected line of the transfer should appear in Field Nos. 24 and 25 respectively. The time limit shown is the number of months left that the goods may remain in warehouse.

EXAMPLE 5

Type 20 - Ex warehouse, consumption

This example shows the format to be used when goods are removed from the warehouse for consumption. Note that the applied duty and/or taxes must be paid and the summary block completed. In addition, Field Nos. 24 and 25 must show the previous transaction number and line reference of the corresponding warehouse Form B3 to which these goods relate.

EXAMPLE 6

Type 20 - Ex warehouse, remission

This example shows a typical remission format when 100% of the duty is remitted. Note that Field No. 22 must show the number of cartons actually removed from the warehouse including any marks.

EXAMPLE 7

Type 20 - Ex warehouse, SIMA assessment (paid)

This example shows the format to be used when part of a shipment is removed from the warehouse and is subject to SIMA assessment. The SIMA code in Field No. 32 shows 31; the first digit indicates that provisional duty is being assessed and the second digit indicates that the amount is being paid in cash. The export price has been determined to be the selling price on the invoice and is 5¢ each or $50 for the shipment. The normal value has been determined to be 10¢ each or $100 for the shipment. The provisional anti dumping duty is the amount by which the export price is lower than the normal value. In this case, 5¢ per unit times the number of units ex warehoused during the provisional period (1000 × 5¢ = $50).

Value for tax in Field No. 41 must include the SIMA assessment amount completed in Field No. 39. Total SIMA assessment must be included in Field No. 48.

EXAMPLE 8

Type 20 - Ex warehouse, SIMA assessment (deferred by bond)

This example shows the format to be used when part of a shipment is removed from the warehouse and is subject to SIMA assessment. The SIMA code in Field No. 32 shows 32; the first digit indicates that provisional duty is being assessed and the second digit indicates that the payment is deferred by a SIMA bond. (See Memorandum D14 1 5 for details respecting use of the SIMA bond). Provisional anti dumping duty is the difference between the normal value and export price (see Example 9 for details).

Value for tax in Field No. 41 does not include the SIMA assessment amount which is shown in Field No. 39. The total SIMA assessment amount in Field No. 48 is nil. Note that the bond number is shown in Field No. 22.

EXAMPLE 9

Type 21 - Ex warehouse, export

This example shows the format to be used when goods are being removed from the warehouse and exported from Canada. The name and number of the office of export should be indicated either by means of a block stamp or by typing the information in the body of the coding form. Field Nos. 24 and 25 must be completed indicating the previous Form B3 transaction number and line reference on which the goods were warehoused.

EXAMPLE 10

Type 21 - Ex Warehouse, damaged goods

This example shows the format to be used when accounting for damage to goods entered on a previous warehouse Form B3. The previous transaction number and line reference of that warehouse Form B3 must appear in Field Nos. 24 and 25, respectively. The amount of damage allowed on Form K11, Certificate of Damaged Goods, is shown on a Form B3, type 21. The balance of the goods accounted for on the previous warehouse Form B3 must be documented on the appropriate Form B3 type.

EXAMPLE 11

Type 21 - Ex warehouse, export for goods deemed exported

This example shows the format to be used for goods previously deemed exported. It is used to ex warehouse the goods entered on a Form B3, type 10. The export routing CBSA office must be shown in the body of Form B3.

EXAMPLE 12

Type 22 - Ships' stores, sales to the Governor General and diplomats

This example shows the format to be used when goods are ex warehoused for ships' stores. In addition to this coding form, Form B6D, Ships' Stores Delivery Declaration, is to be completed in as much detail as possible. As duty and/or taxes are not collected, these fields should not be completed. If the goods must be forwarded to another CBSA office prior to loading on the vessel, the office name and number should be typed or block stamped in the body of Form B3.

EXAMPLE 13

Type 30 - Transfer of goods within a CBSA office

This example shows the format to be used when transferring part of a shipment to another bonded warehouse within an area serviced by the same CBSA office. The new warehouse number must be typed or block stamped in the body of the form. The time the goods may remain in the warehouse is shown in Field No. 18.

EXAMPLE 14

Type 30 - Transfer of ownership within a CBSA office

This example shows the format to be used when there is a transfer of ownership within an area serviced by the same customs office with the goods remaining in the same customs bonded warehouse. The transfer declaration must be signed by both the transferor and the transferee. The details of the original warehouse Form B3 are entered in the body of the coding form and the previous transaction number and its line reference must be completed in Field Nos. 24 and 25.

EXAMPLE 15

Type 30 - Transfer of ownership within a CBSA office, goods consigned to order in care of bank

This example shows the format to be used for a transfer of ownership with the goods remaining in the same customs bonded warehouse. The transfer declaration is signed by both parties, as they are both located within the area covered by the same CBSA office. All the details from the original warehouse Form B3 are shown in the body of the transfer Form B3. Because the goods were originally consigned to order in care of a bank, and are now being transferred to the owner, this transfer is exempted from the provisions of subsection 30(j) of the Customs Act. (This transfer is not one of the three transfers allowed.)

EXAMPLE 16

Type 30 - Transfer of ownership and goods within a CBSA office

This example shows the format to be used when the ownership of goods, which have been warehoused, is transferred, and the goods are relocated to another bonded warehouse within the area serviced by the same CBSA office. Importers/brokers must add the transfer information shown on this example by means of a block stamp or by typing the data directly onto the body of the coding form. In this example, the transferor, as well as the transferee, must sign the certificate indicating that a transfer of ownership has been effected. In addition, the number of the bonded warehouse from which the goods will be transferred must also be completed in Field No. 44. Field No. 18 must indicate the time the goods may continue to remain in the warehouse. Field Nos. 24 and 25 must be completed to identify the previous transaction number and line on which the goods were warehoused or transferred. Importers/brokers must note in Field No. 22 the number of times the goods in question have been transferred.

EXAMPLE 17

Type 30 - Transfer of goods to another CBSA office

This example shows the format to be used when goods are transferred from a warehouse in an area serviced by one CBSA office to a warehouse in an area serviced by another CBSA office. Importers/brokers must indicate the CBSA office for the area to which the goods are being transferred and the warehouse number, if known, in the body of the coding form. In addition, it should be noted in Field No. 22 the number of times the goods in question have been transferred. It is also necessary to complete Field Nos. 24 and 25 to indicate the previous Form B3 transaction number and line reference on which the goods were warehoused or transferred. Field No. 18 shows the time the transferred goods may remain in the warehouse.

EXAMPLE 18

Type 30 - Transfer of ownership and goods to another CBSA office

This example shows the format to be used when goods are transferred to a new owner in an area serviced by another CBSA office. Importers/brokers must affix the necessary transfer information, as illustrated in the example, by means of a block stamp or by typing the information directly onto the body of the coding form. The transferor must sign the transfer certificate, but only the name of the transferee need appear. In addition, the CBSA office number and name, which services the area to which the goods are being forwarded, must be completed. If known, the new bonded warehouse number should be completed. Field No. 18 must indicate the time the goods may continue to remain in the warehouse. Field Nos. 24 and 25 must identify the previous Form B3 transaction number and line reference on which the goods were warehoused.

APPENDIX F
CHECK DIGIT CALCULATION FOR TRANSACTION NUMBERS

A transaction number consists of three elements:

  • (a)   the account security number;
  • (b)   the importer/broker assigned sequential number; and
  • (c)   the check digit.

The check digit is calculated by applying the "Modulo 10" formula to the combined account security and sequential number.

To apply the formula, the account security number must have five digits and the sequential number must have eight digits (with leading zeros inserted if necessary).

The Modulo 10 calculation is as follows:

  • (a)   link together the account security and sequential number into one 13‑digit number;
  • Note: If the assigned sequential number is not known, determine the number of shipments imported into Canada to date, starting from January 1, 1988. (This number must be unique within seven years plus three current months from this date.)
  • For example, if the shipment is the first shipment imported into Canada since January 1, 1988, use 1 and zero fill the seven digits before the 1 (00000001).
  • (b)   starting with the high‑order digit (the most left hand), multiply each digit in an odd‑numbered position by 1, and multiply each digit in an even‑numbered position by 2;
  • (c)   for each result of the multiplication above, if the result is greater than or equal to 10, add the two digits together to give a single digit result (e.g., a digit of 9 multiplied by 2 gives a result of 18. 18 is greater than 10, so add the digits 1 and 8 together to give a result of 9);
  • (d)   sum all of the results calculated above;
  • (e)   divide the sum by 10, giving a quotient and a remainder;
  • (f)    the remainder becomes the check digit and the 14th digit of the transaction number.

ILLUSTRATION

Given an account security number of 12345 and a sequential number of 6789, calculate the appropriate check digit for the transaction number.

APPENDIX G
DETAILED CODING STATEMENTS

The following are three examples of detailed coding statements with a brief explanation of each:

Example 1 - Notification of Rejection - This detailed coding statement is generated when the system encounters an error while processing Form B3 input data. The statement displays Form B3 data input as well as system calculations. At the end of the display of Form B3 information, a list of messages shows the importer/broker the error that requires correction.

Example 2 - Notification of Adjustment - This detailed coding statement is generated when the total revenue payable calculated by the system does not match the total revenue payable input from Form B3, but the discrepancy is less than the variance threshold that is equal to $2. In this case, Form B3 is accepted using the system calculated totals which will appear on Form K84, Importer/Broker Account Statement. The detailed coding statement is forwarded to the importer/broker for information purposes.

Example 3 - Notification of Acceptance - This detailed coding statement is generated when neither an error nor a variance is found and Form B3 is a cash type, i.e., no Form K84 will be generated. In this case, the detailed coding statement will be stamped "duty paid" and returned to the importer/broker after payment is received.

APPENDIX I
BAR CODE SPECIFICATIONS

Bar Code Specifications Applicable to all Customs Bar Code Labels

1. Bar Code Symbologies

Either of the following bar code symbologies may be selected:

  • (a)   standard code 3 of 9, as defined in the AIM document USS‑39 (USD‑3), (AIM is the Automatic Identification Manufacturers, Inc.). Use of the optional code 3 of 9 Modulo 43 checksum is not acceptable. Code 3 of 9 bar code symbols may be printed with either a 2:1 or 3:1 wide to narrow bar width ratio, subject to meeting requirements in paragraph 15 of this appendix; or
  • (b)   Code 128 is defined in AIM document USS‑128 (USD‑6). A Modulo 103 checksum digit is a mandatory part of code 128.

Note: For cargo control numbers longer than 18 characters, it may not be possible to use code 3 of 9. The maximum length of 4.5 in. (11.43 cm) will be strictly enforced.

2.Width of Narrow Bar

The minimum width of a narrow bar must be 0.009 in. (0.023 cm).

The maximum width of a narrow bar is dependent on the bar code symbology selected as follows:

  • Code 3 of 9 (2:1 ratio)    = 0.016 in. (0.04 cm)
  • Code 3 of 9 (3:1 ratio)    = 0.012 in. (0.03 cm)
  • Code 128 (no double density)   = 0.016 in. (0.04 cm)
  • Code 128 (double density) = 0.024 in. (0.06 cm)

3. Width of Wide Bar

For code 3 of 9, the wide bar must be no less than two and no more than three times that of a narrow bar, according to the narrow bar specifications in paragraph 2 of this appendix.

For code 128, there are four different bar widths. These must be one to four times that of a narrow bar, where the maximum width of the narrow bar is as specified in paragraph 2 of this appendix.

4. Length of Quiet Zones

Both the leading and the trailing quiet zones must be a minimum of either 10 times the narrow bar width or 0.125 in. (0.3 cm), whichever is greater. Longer quiet zones will increase the readability of the code.

5. Bar Code Symbol Height

The bar code symbol must be between 0.375 in. (0.95 cm) and 0.625 in. (1.60 cm) in height.

6. Bar Code Symbol Length

The bar code symbol, including the leading and trailing quiet (blank) zones, as well as the human readability component, must totally reside within the delimited area as defined in paragraph 15 of this appendix.

7. Human Readable Format

  • (a)   Human readable print (names or numbers) must always be below the bar code.
  • (b)   The height of the human readable print must be at least 0.0984 in. (0.25 cm).
  • (c)   The human readable number must begin on the left side of the bar code directly below the point where the bar code starts.
  • (d)   The spacing between the bar code and the human readable format and any subsequent lines must be at least 0.03 in. (0.08 cm).

8. Print Contrast Ratio

The print contrast ratio is the ratio of the difference of reflectivity between the bars and spaces, as follows:

Where reflectance is defined as a percentage figure, the print contrast ratio must be a minimum of 55% with an optimum value of 75%.

9. Readability

The average first read rate for bar code symbols produced must be 95% (i.e., only 5 in 100 will require more than one scan). All bar codes produced through carbons must meet the same read rate as the original.

10. Lifetime

The bar code symbol must be readable for a minimum of 8 months with a 95% first read rate.

11. Print Type

The bar code symbol may be printed with either carbon or non‑carbon ink.

12. Label Size

If labels are used, the maximum length and width of the label is as defined in the delimited area of paragraph 15 of this appendix. There should be no wording above the bar code itself and there should be 0.125 in. (0.3 cm) between the top of the bar code and the edge of the label. The label must be a self‑adhesive, permanent label and must be smudge‑proof.

Bar Code Specifications Specific to Account Security Holder Transaction Numbers

13. Code for Transaction Numbers

The bar code symbol represents a 14‑digit (transaction) code, where the first five digits are the account security number, the next eight digits are the importer/broker assigned number, and the last digit is the check digit.

The Modulo 10 checksum digit formula, as specified by CBSA (see Appendix F), must be used to calculate all check digits. The assigned number must not be repeated for a period of seven years plus three currents months.

14. Human Readable Format

Below each bar code symbol, the encoded data must be printed in a human readable format. The human readable number must be 14 digits long not including the dash or space which is found after the first 5 digits (account security number), i.e., 12345 000067897 or 12345‑000067897. The bar code symbol should read only the 14 digits found in the human readable number and should not read the dash or space. The human readable transaction number must begin on the left side of the bar code directly below the point where the bar code starts. If a broker or importer's name is to be printed on the bar code label, it should be printed on the same line but must be separated by a blank character space, a slash, and another blank character space (e.g., 12345‑123456781/ABC customs brokers). If the broker's or importer's name is too long to fit on one line with the human readable number, it should be printed below and start at the left of the human readable number but should not start any further left than where the broker's or importer's name started on the line above (e.g., 12345‑123456781/Associated National - Customs Brokers of Canada).

Only names and not numbers are acceptable after the 14‑digit transaction number.

The human readable print must be at least 0.0984 in. (0.25 cm) and the spacing between the bar code and the human readable format and any subsequent lines must be at least 0.03 in. (0.08 cm).

The CADEX indicator should not be printed on the bar code label. It should be printed on the release information card or on the release documentation itself as close to the bar‑coded label as possible.

15. Delimited Area

The bar‑coded label must fit into a space that is 4 in. (10.2 cm) long by 1 in. (2.54 cm) high. The symbol itself can be no longer than 3.75 in. (9.5 cm) and no higher than 0.625 in. (1.60 cm).

16. Private Printing

Bar codes must be printed privately and approval for quality control must be obtained in advance from customs. Requests for approval must be accompanied by sample bar‑coded/human readable transaction numbers and should be submitted to:

CCS Systems Maintenance
Systems Operations Division
Canada Border Services Agency
250 Tremblay Road, 6th floor
