The Advantage of a Drawback Expert
General Brokers & Third Party Logistics Providers
General Customs Brokers that offer drawback services as an ancillary service usually do not possess the regulatory expertise, specialized software and analytics, and drawback specific knowledge to compliantly prepare drawback entries.
Since drawback is not their core service offering, they may lack operational resources to offer a turnkey solution, and instead will push critical elements of the process back on the drawback claimant.
Why Not Do It Ourselves?
The development and ongoing management of an in-house drawback program can be a daunting endeavor for your trade compliance department’s limited resources. Also, a lack of drawback knowledge and systems can result in missed recovery and compliance exposure. We offset our fees through recovery maximization.
A successful drawback program requires the following critical elements:
- Understanding drawback’s numerous legal provisions to select the most advantageous option when more than one can apply
- Extensive drawback specific regulatory expertise needed to avoid exposure with Customs
- Knowledge of operational process needed to accurately construct drawback claims
- Personnel resources to gather required documents and data elements
Additionally, highly sophisticated drawback software with extensive functionality is required to generate drawback claims for electronic submission in Customs’ ACE drawback processing module.
