Drawback Automation

Alliance’s advanced drawback automation expertise sets us apart from the competition. All Alliance desk level drawback analysts possess superior business applications and systems skills. Our employees are tested extensively in data management and conversion. Drawback Analysts validate and convert data files, prepare specialized client reporting in Excel, and use proprietary analytics to maximize drawback recovery.

Specialized Drawback Software: For duty drawback claim preparation, using an automated drawback software application is the most basic requirement for a drawback service provider. Limited off the shelf programs only provide rudimentary claims processing, reporting, and automated submission of claims to Customs. Our proprietary drawback platform allows us to adjust import data due to import reconciliation programs (adjustments due to NAFTA, Section 301, Value, and HTS recon), post entry adjustments to duty paid, and even prior disclosures based on statistical sampling methodologies. The ability to properly adjust import data ensures accurate and compliant drawback claim preparation and avoids potential issues with US Customs and Border Protection. Further, Alliance developed proprietary data validation applications to allows us to identify data integrity issues with electronic files or identify data entry errors for large required manual keying projects.

Manual Data Entry Capabilities: Additionally, Alliance specializes in high import/export transaction volume accounts (retail and electronics as examples). In some instances, these clients require the manual processing of millions of import records in order to capture part number level detail. Alliance can scan import files to our secure cloud based record retention system. These PDF files are then accessed by our oversees data entry team in the cloud to manually key the required data elements.
