Unless exempt, all commercial goods imported into the U.S. are subject to customs duty and taxes. In order to determine the applicable duties and taxes payable, you must first determine their tariff classification. In addition to customs duty and taxes, some goods are also assessed in relation to other taxes, including excise duty, excise tax, countervailing duties, and anti-dumping duties.
A bond is “a contract which is given to ensure the performance of an obligation by a law or regulation” When the bond is executed, the bond principal agrees to pay duties, taxes, and charges in a timely manner, to make or complete entry, to produce documents and evidence, to redeliver merchandise, etc.
In lieu of a bond, an importer has the option of posting cash or other U.S. government obligations in a sum equal to the bond amount. However, if an importer deposits money with Customs, such funds will not be released until sometime after the entry is liquidated; this could take months or even years. After-Ship Logistics can assist the importer in getting the proper bond to expedite the release of their shipment.
