CBP Form 301A, Addendum to Form 301 is a form used to provide the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) with the information about additional co-principals. This document is an extension of CBP Form 301, Customs Bond and cannot be submitted separately. The CBP 301 is filled out in order to provide the CBP with a guarantee of payments of taxes, duties, or charges. The CBP wants to make sure that the principals (importers) and sureties (insurance companies) will comply with their laws and regulations. If there are more than two co-principals, the CBP Form 301A must be submitted.
The companies that can be registered as the co-principals on CBP customs bonds must be related. What is more, they must be of the same business type. At the same time, they are separate legal entities with different tax ID numbers. A customs broker is required to have a separate Power of Attorney for each co-principal.
The latest version of the customs bond CBP Form 301A was issued by the CBP in June 2011. At present, the Office of Management and Budget date indicated on the form is expired. However, the document is still valid and can be used. Find the fillable version of the CBP 301A Form on the CBP official website or download it through the link below.
