If you want to start an import and export business, the first step is to get it registered and get an import-export license from competent authorities. You need to consider all legal matters along with concrete planning before actually importing or exporting. For example, if you want to import alcohol or tobacco products you require an Alcohol and Tobacco Trade and Tax Bureau permit for the purpose. Getting an Alcohol and TobaccoTrade and Tax Bureau permit does not cost you anything, but it takes months to get the same in Canada. Simultaneously, you should also get detail information of the legal processes of the country from where you want to import or export and whether you have to pay any tax or fee for the purpose and how much time it takes.

Once you are educated about the primary steps of the importing and exporting of your goods, you can start with your actual importing and exporting.
