CUSTOMS ACCOUNTING 2000 For CADEX and ACROSS
Design is Critical:
Customs Accounting 2000
has been designed to assist in the expeditious movement of
shipments through Canada Customs and account for them accurately. Information has been
organized and is presented on demand in concise, easy to view screens. Secure
electronic data interchange is accomplished over the Internet using SSH technology.
C.A.D.E.X. and A.C.R.O.S.S.(CCRA) have been made effortless:
Cyclic exchanges with CCRA are scheduled at configurable intervals for
efficiency. All messages going to and from CCRA are translated and incoming data is
automatically posted to the relevant files. The scheduled transmissions can be pre-empted
at any time by menu selections.
4GL Relational Database
Separate files are maintained for vendors, carriers, clients, ports, products, currency
exchange rates, customs tariff, GST, excise, and more. Popup windows provide easy inquiry
to source files while adding or updating transactions in production .
Production transactions include:
Various production files are checked at regular intervals for the status of
transactions. Completed transactions are moved from active files to on line archives for
quick retrieval for audit or subsequent processing. The refund and amends program for
instance accesses the archived Customs entry file for details that are included in the
preparation to the B2 form.
Current and Accurate:
The Clerkware Canada Service Bureau (CCSB) distributes updates to currency
exchange rates and the Customs tariff as they are provided by Revenue Canada. These
updates are posted to subscribers data bases automatically. All subscribers are assured of
having current and accurate source files to work from.
The CCSB sends regular reports on the status of a subscriber's transactions with
Revenue Canada so late submissions are avoided.
EDI & Value Added Network (VAN)
Subscribers may also choose to establish a connection with a value added network
(VAN) for the exchange of commercial documents including invoices and bills of lading that
can be used in the preparation of electronic Customs releases via ACROSS and electronic
Customs entries via CADEX. The processing of these EDI inputs reduces the keying of data
