Working with a customs broker is the best way to ensure that your goods are successfully imported and that you are not overcharged in duties or taxes.
Customs Brokerage Services We Offer Include:
Depending on the goods you are importing, you may need government clearance from agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration, the Department of Agriculture, or the Fish and Wildlife Service. Our customs clearing agents communicate with the necessary agencies to ensure your merchandise meets all rules and regulations before entering the country.
If your commercial goods are valued at $1,000 or more, you will need a customs bond to guarantee all duties, taxes, and other fees will be paid to the government. A broker can secure your transaction with a broker’s bond, eliminating a potential roadblock in the shipping process.
When you seek a binding classification ruling, you’re trying to guarantee that your goods will be ruled as a specific tariff classification. This means that the same duty rates will always apply to your goods, no matter what port of entry you use. Not only does this help bring peace of mind, it also makes it easier to determine long-term costs. Our experienced agents can help you through this often complicated process.
If merchandise that you import is subsequently exported, it’s possible to get a refund on the duties you paid. Don’t miss out on this substantial money-saving opportunity: have a broker complete the required paperwork to get an accelerated refund.
Once you try our services, we are confident you will be pleased. Our team has over 10 years of combined experience in customs clearance, and we’re able to streamline the international shipping process while keeping you informed every step of the way.
