The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has announced that annual user fee for the Customs Broker Permit held by customs brokers is due no later than Feb. 24, 2023.
The amount due for the 2023 calendar year is $163.71 (up from $153.19.)
The fee is assessed for each permit held by a broker, which includes individuals, partnerships, associations, and corporations. It reflects the rule changes that were announced back in October, which included the elimination of district permits and the transition to national permits, as well as adjustments made for inflation as part of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA).
Under the new rules, broker districts and the related district permits were eliminated in favor of a single national permit framework. The transition came into effect on Dec. 19, 2022.
