Too often importers expect their brokers to do all of the work when it comes to the importing process. Unfortunately the broker is NOT a tax advisor. Any errors they make could result in penalties for you, the importer. Learn the key compliance elements of importing, classification, valuation, country of origin duty payment and record keeping. Learn also how to decipher those cryptic forms your broker supplies to you.
