Everyone’s on a budget.
So let’s talk dollars and cents.
Are we affordable for you? The answer is: “It depends.” Trade compliance is not a profit center in any organization. Unlike Sales and Marketing or R&D, the work we do does not directly generate revenue for a company. However, our expertise can definitely save you from costly fines, penalties, delays and other adverse impacts to your operations.
Here are a few key takeaways to consider:
- Generally speaking, companies who are proactive about trade compliance are better off than those who are reactive. What does that mean? Simply put, it means putting some effort into compliance before your shipment is seized by U.S. Customs, or before that polite, well-dressed enforcement official from ICE comes knocking at your door.
- If your company does $50 million revenue per year and sells products globally, yet you haven’t spent a dime on trade compliance in the last 12 months, then it probably means you’re in trouble and you don’t even know it yet.
- We’ve built compliance programs for $10,000, and others for $100,000 (or more). The difference is not about quality. It’s about the size, scope and volume of your operation.
- We are generally more cost-effective than attorneys who perform the same services as we do. Do you need an attorney for trade compliance? Occasionally, yes. And we are happy to recommend some great lawyers for our clients who do.
We are happy to talk further with you about pricing and cost estimates. Just schedule a no-charge consultation. However, please understand that we do not send out “rate sheets” or respond to emails asking what we charge.
