The Importance of Origin From a Customs Perspective
The label says Made in China, so determining the origin for customs purposes is easy, right? Wrong! Determining the origin of your goods is much more complicated than you might think. It is also essential, as the origin of your goods can affect the duty amount you have to pay or even whether you are allowed to export or import your goods.

Changes in HS-Codes, Trade Agreements, rules to determine the origin, quota, dual-use, sanctions and other requirements and restrictions can significantly impact your operations and your bottom line.

Five Checkpoints of Great Customs Consultancy
Entrusting a customs consultant with your supply chain can be daunting. The customs landscape is ever-changing, and you are at risk of audits, delays, and lost business if you do not have your procedures in check. Therefore, regular customs consultancy is key to maintaining your business. However, what do you look for when choosing a company for such an important task?
Facing the Complexity of Goods Classification
Goods classification, together with the country of origin and customs value, is used by the customs authority to determine the number of import duties or other levies that need to be paid. Customs Authorities may find you are using the wrong HS Code when they check one of your shipments. When you are AEO Certified, the Customs Authority periodically audits your company. During these audits, they also check the quality of your product classifications.
