The session will also provide you with examples to understand different approaches and circumstances while determining the proper value of your goods.

At the end of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Understand the process of valuing imports into Canada
  • Analyze the impact of a ‘related company’ on values for Customs
  • Define new CBSA measures and requirements on ‘related company’ value adjustments
  • Summarize best practices and considerations while determining values for Customs
