Update – CARM Client Portal Access This Spring

January 13, 2021 – The Canada Border Services Agency’s (CBSA) Assessment and Revenue Management project, or CARM as it is referred to, is a multi-year project being implemented through a phased approach. CARM will transform the way in which CBSA operates with the goal of delivering a more streamlined trade experience, a more secure environment for trade and increased compliance and revenue collection.

As part of the phased approach, release 1 will take place in spring 2021 and release 2 is planned for spring 2022. CBSA clients will need to visit the CARM Client Portal in order to create a user account and set up their business. This will allow clients to view and manage their duties and tax accounts with CBSA, submit commercial accounting declarations and make any necessary corrections, make electronic payments, and file advanced ruling requests.
