In order to import merchandise into the United States, in most cases a formal Customs Entry is required. We can handle your import procedures, filing all necessary forms with Customs in order to clear your goods as quickly and efficiently as possible.
The proper classification of your merchandise is critical. That will determine the amount of duty to be paid and also indicates other requirements for each particular product. By complying with Customs regulations you are assured of paying the correct duty amounts.
CBP requires a Customs Bond for all entries. Customs bond is a financial guaranty, similar to an insurance policy, to cover any potential duties, taxes, and charges that may accrue, in the event that these fees are not paid to U.S. Customs by the importer.
If you import on a regular basis a "continuous bond" is recommended. If you only import on occasion, a "single entry bond" may be the most economical choice.
