HI, i need do this. On step 3 of the form, it says i need to provide the CBSA inventory/import receipt number from the CBSA postal import form. Where do i find this number? package was shipped UPS. I have the original box, but no additional paper work is on the box itself.
To be honest, I don't remember for sure where I got that number, although it was definitely for an order received through UPS.
I do indeed still have a scan of the B2G from when I sent it, and I definitely wrote in the number. It's possible that I called UPS and asked them to provide the number.

Alright thanks anyways. This the only thing i need to finish the form. Did you have to send any proof that you shipped the item back? Not that i would try to scam the system, since i already shipped it back earlier today. If not, what documents did you provide besides the one for step 3?

Yes, I sent them a tracking printout showing it has been delivered.
I also sent them a credit card statement printout showing it had been refunded.

I ran into this exact same thing about 4yrs ago when I bought a video card from EVGA. It took almost 3 months of bouncing around between the carrier, EVGA, and then finally the CBSA to get it back and by then the dollar parity was different so I still lost over $75 in the exchange rate (almost $150 total in the differences in the end of the card and taxes, duties and shipping.) :(

I would just bring that up with the CSBA next time you declare something when crossing over at a land bridge.

Sometimes they are sympathetic.

To update this thread for others in the future.

Step 3 of the B2G form asks for an import receipt number. I was confused with this for the longest time. I called CBSA today. I was told this was the same as the "way bill number". Also fyi, i didn't receive any paper work with my delivered item. But UPS was helpful, and sent me a commercial invoice which has the way bill number on it.

Just posting this in case any one else in the future is confused to what an import receipt number is.
