Take Full Advantage of Duty Preference Programs Available to You
Duty Preference Programs, also sometimes called Preferential Trade Agreements, are a leg-up for operators in certain economically disadvantaged countries and territories. There are specific criteria and requirements for admission to duty preference programs, per the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. Both importers and exporters are responsible to conduct due diligence in ensuring their goods qualify and that they're maintaining all the appropriate documentation to prove it.
At Star USA, our team helps importers and exporters who qualify for duty preference programs to develop and implement documented policies and procedures relating to that program. That includes a combination of data analysis, internal audits, training and education, reliable recordkeeping, and clear procedures.
