Why Should you Attend:
Due to the changes that has suffered the customs legislation in recent dates, now more than ever it is essential to identify the valuation method applicable for each one of the import operations performed by the importers, as well as its proper application. Through a dynamic presentation and the use of practical examples, the participant will correctly determine the taxable base taking into consideration the specific elements of each operation.
For importers, the process of estimating the value of a product at customs presents problems that can be just as serious as the actual duty rate charged. The WTO agreement on customs valuation aims for a fair, uniform and neutral system for the valuation of goods for customs purposes - a system that conforms to commercial realities, and which outlaws the use of arbitrary or fictitious customs values. The Committee on Customs Valuation of the Council for Trade in Goods (CGT) carries out work in the WTO on customs valuation.
