Duty Preference Programs

We regularly counsel clients with virtually every duty savings program available in the United States and work closely with our clients’ sourcing personnel to ensure that sourcing decisions maximize duty and cost savings available through duty preference programs. We also offer services that allow our clients to outsource the duty preference program analysis to us.

We have significant experience representing clients in preference program audits by U.S. and foreign customs authorities, ranging from the relatively simple written audit to the more extensive and instrusive on-site audit.

Finally, we offer both web-based and “in person” preference program education courses that are designed to help our clients and their suppliers obtain accurate and timely information regarding the origin of our clients’ products and raw materials.
