Four common misconceptions in the relationship between importers and customs brokers

Importers often try to avoid customs clearance processes, relying entirely on the customs broker. On the one hand, the broker is a customs expert, possesses relevant experience and, ultimately, receives a commission for his/her work. It seems that the importer should not be involved in the processes managed by the customs broker. On the other hand, such self-exclusion can result in very unpleasant financial and reputational consequences. This article considers the most common misconceptions of importers in cooperation with customs brokers, which cause losses for both sides.

When we come to December and ponder what the new year may bring, it is an ideal opportunity to reflect on the past success and failure of our trade business in order to seek-out how to improve our business performance in the future. Let’s consider compliance reviews that deliver the highest value but require the least effort.

‘Any person’ concept or What we learn from the UCC about who is responsible for what?
20-11-2022

Legal responsibility is one of the reasons why people refrain from engaging in non-compliant actions or activities. No one wants to be fined, let alone jailed, including participants of the international supply chain. So, what does customs compliance mean for those involved in international trade? What rules should be followed?

Ask a customs lawyer about what and why can go wrong
11-10-2022

Lawyers are often called by importers and exporters when something goes wrong. A customs lawyer with many years of experience representing clients in disputes with customs and in the courts is an invaluable source of compliance knowledge. However, solving disputes in appeal procedures and subsequently in the courts is a long and costly process (and there is no success guarantee); therefore, be proactive, talk to a lawyer or a consultant beforehand about what and why can go wrong and take actions to prevent the issues.
