What is EOPS?

The Exporters of Processing Services Program enables qualified companies to import goods belonging to non-residents without paying the Goods and Services Tax/Harmonized Sales Tax (GST/HST), provided that these goods are imported for processing, distribution or storage, and are subsequently exported. This program may be relevant to you if:

You are registered for GST/HST purposes;
You are able to post financial security, if required;
You never transfer possession of the goods to another Canadian business (except for storage, transportation);
Goods are owned by non-resident(s) who is not closely related[1] to you;
The goods are never consumed or used in Canada; and
The goods will be exported within four years of accounting for them.
