Import Consulting Services
No matter the size of your business or where you are importing goods from, the importing process can be a maze of confusing paperwork and shipping procedures.
If you are importing goods or services from other countries, you already know how difficult it can be to understand and adhere to all the variables involved with import compliance. Government regulations were not made to be easily understood, nor were they created with your business process in-mind.
As an importer, the government holds you solely responsible for adhering to trade compliance regulations. You can’t use ignorance as an excuse, and Your business is responsible for many aspects whenever you import something into the U.S., including:
- Correct valuation of goods
- Accurate classification
- Correct marking and country of origin
The list of requirements that businesses need to meet seems to continue to grow and be updated each year. Importers can become overwhelmed with the numerous compliance and logistic options that you need to meet to remain compliant with the government.
Whether your business is trying to get a foothold in the market or you want to grow your business, then you need to have knowledgeable trade consultants on your side to help you with a range of business operations.
Import consultants will help you find and take advantage of preferential trade programs. This type of professional overview can help you uncover significant savings in all areas of your business.
