2024 Customs Broker Triennial Status Report
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said “Save Time, Submit Online,” when it announced that the submission period for the 2024 Customs Broker Triennial Status Report (TSR) and associated $100 filing fee for all licensed customs brokers opens Monday, Dec. 18.
Who must submit the TSR?
A status report and fee must be submitted by each entity holding a valid customs broker's license (not revoked or canceled) issued any time prior to the 2024 calendar year, whether it may be a license for a corporation, limited liability company, partnership, association, or individual. An individually licensed Customs broker who forms a corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or association which holds an organization broker license, will be required to submit two reports and fees – one for the individual license, and one for the organization license.
When is the TSR due to CBP?
The TSR and $100 fee is due by Feb. 29, 2024.
How do I submit my TSR?
CBP said the TSR must be submitted online via the eCBP portal. A Login.gov ID allows customs brokers to file their own status report and one organization status report. The agency said customs brokers may not use their login.gov ID to file another individual’s status report. “eCBP accepts credit card and debit card payments. No additional fees are charged for any payments, and receipts are provided electronically,” CBP said.
Is Continuing Education (CE) reporting required on the 2024 TSR?
Customs brokers do not need to report CE credit hours in the 2024 Triennial Status Report. CBP said it will publish further guidelines on CE reporting requirements for the Triennial Status Report due in February 2027 in an upcoming Federal Register Notice.
What happens if a customs broker fails to submit a timely TSR?
Failure to file a TSR by March 1, 2024, will result in the suspension of the customs broker’s license by operation of law on that date. By March 31 of the reporting year, CBP will transmit written notice of the suspension to the customs broker. CBP said, if the customs broker files the required report and pays the required fee within 60 calendar days of the date of the notice of suspension, the license will be reinstated. If the customs broker, however, does not file the required report and pay the required fee within that 60-day period, its license is revoked without prejudice to the filing of an application for a new license. Notice of the revocation will be published in the Federal Register.
