On June 5, 2013, The Government of Canada published in Canada Gazette Part II an order requiring all importers to pay a levy on beef and products containing beef imported into Canada. Included in the order http://canadagazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p2/2013/2013-06-05/html/sor-dors98-eng.php is the list of HS codes on which the levy will be charged. The levy is to be paid to Canada Beef to support beef research and the promotion of beef consumption in Canada.
It is anticipated that Canada Beef will address the following items at the information session.
• Products on which the levy will be charged
• Calculation of the amount that each importer will be invoiced by Canada Beef
• Date collection of the levy will start
• Invoicing and payment process
• Consequences of non payment
• Initiatives which the money will support
