Topic Background

Finding the best tariff classification can be complicated, especially in the case of specialized products. In today's complex trading environment, proper tariff classification can depend on a myriad of U.S. and international trade laws, regulations, rulings, and a host of other references. Taking on all sources alone can quickly develop into a massive headache of overpaid duties and improperly classified goods. It stands to reason that a solid, intuitive, and above all else accessible tariff classification solution is the remedy you need. Correct, consistent, legally defensible tariff classifications are at the heart of import compliance. You are responsible for ensuring that proper HTS tariff classifications are used for all your imports, and Schedule B codes for your exports. You can't afford tariff classification mistakes and inconsistencies resulting from a lack of systemic controls over tariff classification procedures.
