    Practical strategies for significant business decisions.

Specialized knowledge to support the complex customs landscape

The customs compliance landscape is often challenging, and it is changing at a record pace. Tighter restrictions, evolving regulations and uncertainties around critical supply chains, Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA/USMCA) and other free trade agreements can create difficult situations for importers. This leads to overpayment of duties, uncertainty about duty recovery options and submission of incorrect trade data elements to customs authorities, which results in the potential for monetary penalties.

Advising on various trade, customs, and duties tax issues

BDO’s Customs Consulting team provides clients with comprehensive solutions for these issues. Carefully reviewing and planning a company’s cross-border trade activities can reduce expenses through duty recovery or duty minimization.
