Duty Reclaim

Case Study – Classification Reviews

We have completed various detailed classification reviews for high-street retailers, automotive sector companies and chemical importers to identify incorrect commodity codes used at importation. Following these reviews we managed many duty reclaims on the importing businesses behalf with HM Revenue & Customs and obtained duty reclaims of over £3.5m of customs duty and anti-dumping duty.

Case Study – Valuation Reviews

We completed a valuation review for an importing business and identified numerous non-dutiable elements of the value declared at import which could be legitimately removed from the value for customs declaration purposes. Savings achieved total over £2m of reclaimed customs duty on a three-year retrospective basis.

Case Study – Customs Regimes

We worked in partnership with various retailers and charities to seek the retrospective use of certain Customs regimes (Inward Processing, Returned Goods Relief and Temporary Admission) to seek and obtain customs duty refunds and obtain duty savings on an ongoing basis. Our reviews covered various products across a range of business sectors resulting in reclaims of c£2m and considerable savings achieved on an ongoing basis.
