  • Classification

    Correct tariff classification of goods is a key component of trade compliance. Customs authorities expect accuracy. Audits require it. Our professionals will make sure your practices comply for importing or exporting.

  • Valuation

    All products must have a value for customs purposes. But how would you put a price on a used product being shipped to your sister company at no charge? Avoid onerous financial penalties by having our experts confirm your valuations.

  • Voluntary Disclosures & Appeals

    Everyone makes mistakes. Gov't authorities allow you to voluntarily correct non-compliance. But it can be costly after the designated time-limit has passed. We can help you get ahead of errors before they trigger an audit.

  • Audits & Audit Assistance

    The best response to an audit request is a confident one. If a gov't agency has questions about your importing/exporting practices, or has notified you of an audit, we can make sure you are complying every way you should, then disclosing effectively if necessary.

  • Export Controls

    Serious penalties for improper export controls are all too common these days. With our export control solutions, you’ll have an accurate, auditable methodology for jurisdiction determination, plus assistance with export licensing.

  • Trade Compliance Assessments

    Do you know your level of compliance? Our trade compliance assessment programs for importers and exporters include a complete risk-lowering review of your importing and exporting practices, procedures, and business process controls.
