Goods Subject to a Remission of Surtax – Update
Revised June 25, 2019 – Lists of Steel, Aluminum and Other Goods Imported from the U.S. Subject to Remission of Countermeasures
As a result of the update, there are items that were on the previous list posted in April have been significantly changed.
A remission claim submitted to the CBSA will be processed according to the terms of the Remission Order that were in effect at the time of the submission of that claim.
This means for instance that:
- Remissions claims submitted to the CBSA before June 25, 2019 will be processed under the United States Surtax Remission Order issued on October 11, 2018, and taking into account as applicable, the amendments made under the two Remission Orders issued respectively on December 17, 2018 and April 15, 2019.
- Remissions claims submitted to the CBSA on or after June 25, 2019 will be processed under the United States Surtax Remission Order taking into account the previous two amending Remission Orders and the additional amendments made under the Order Amending the United States Surtax Remission Order, No. 2019-2 issued on June 25, 2019.
In other words, the only goods subject to a refund of surtax are those currently described on the June 25 list of Steel, Aluminum and Other Goods Imported from the U.S. Subject to Remission of Countermeasures
