Tariff Classification

Selecting the correct tariff classification for products moving cross-border is critical, not only from the perspective of determining customs, excise, value add or anti-dumping duties and taxes payable upon import or export, but also in determining whether goods are subject to import licensing, quotas, other requirements, and even qualification for preferential tariff under Free Trade Agreements (FTAs).

Our team of professionals regularly assist companies in interpreting tariff classification rules, determine duty liabilities and other requirements via the following:

  • World Customs Organisation Harmonised System Explanatory Notes and Advisory Opinion review and analysis;
  • Application for classification rulings from Customs Authorities in respect of tariff classification codes;
  • Deployment of classification tools to ensure longer term application and consistency with national requirements.
