What is Section 321 and what does it mean for your business?

Section 321 is a provision that allows Canadian businesses to ship packages valued at $800 or less duty free. Besides the monetary savings, Section 321 also allows the export of these goods without any custom forms. This means the processing time for these goods are faster. This in turn results in faster shipping times. However, Section 321 can be facilitated only for items that are considered safe.
