Although our world is interconnecting more than ever before, trade among businesses continues to be defined largely by borders and customs duty or tariff payments. With tighter budgets and limited financial resources, remaining competitive through the rapidly evolving international trade requirements creates a great challenge.

Our Customs Duty review and Drawback services respond to this challenge by offering companies the possibility to reduce overpayments and protect their bottom line, all while remaining in compliance with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).


If you are an importer or exporter, chances are that you are unknowingly overpaying, or at some point, overpaid customs duty. Experience has shown that this overpayment occurs for a variety of reasons including timely changes in tariff rates on products.


Anbruch’s expertise in customs duty review opens the door for our clients to recover overpaid customs duty.

Our review includes:

  • A non-intrusive evaluation of all products imported and the customs duty paid per tariff classification to ensure the proper classification of goods was applied and customs duty was paid.
  • The preparation, filing and recovery of overpaid customs duty and, if needed, possible securing of private rulings on behalf of our clients from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to ensure future savings
  • The support of our legal counsel team to challenge and win ruling appeals for the re-classification of products at the (CITT) Canadian International Trade Tribunal and Federal Court levels.
Importing and Exporting?


Importing and then exporting? Anbruch’s customs duty experts help our clients to identify and claim refunds on customs duty paid on imported goods used to create products for exportation, or on imported merchandise that is transformed to eventually be exported.
