It is estimated that one out of every three imported items are misclassified.
Leonard Trade Consulting, LLC is expert in U.S. and global import tariff classification.
The most minuscule detail can affect a duty rate. As a Licensed Customs Broker, we dig deeper and look closer for what the others miss. While increased use of electronic filing has accelerated the process of clearing shipments, the critical importance of correct and appropriate classification has fallen into the hands of inexperienced classifiers who often guess or assign tariff at a higher rate if they don’t know or are unsure.
Our mastery of the General Rules of Interpretation of the U.S. Tariff Schedule enables us to work with an importer to ask the right questions regarding the functions and features of a product and to be aware of the channels of trade or environment of sale. We remain current on newly published rulings and those which are modified or revoked that could assign a tariff classification into a less dutiable subheading. Substantial savings are realized when an importers goods are classified by a Licensed Customs Broker.
