TO AUDIT OR NOT TO AUDIT? from Curlett Cannon & Galbell Pty Ltd

Duty and Overseas Freight, beside the purchase price make up a large component of the costs attributable to sale of imported goods, this obviously is well known to all but what can importers do to limit their costs and stay competitive and ahead of the market ?

Many Companies review the overseas freight costs regularly perhaps on a yearly basis, or even when a better offer comes along.

This is an extremely competitive market with many Freight Forwarders vying for the all important market share. Others stay with their Freight provider, perhaps for many years without review as they have faith and a very personable relation with their Forwarder that facilitates their International cargo movements.

This is quite understandable as Freight Forwarders through their overseas affiliations build strong ties with overseas suppliers, further they may provide tailor made services to meet the Importers requirements and to break the chain may be more costly than say $10.00 per container Freight saving…. .

BUT, what about Duty…..Duty is Duty; it is a cost OR is it? Many importers readily accept rates of Duty advised by their Customs Broker, what about a second opinion? The Customs Tariff is changing daily and new concessions regularly appear… ARE you kept up to date of these changes? Curlett Cannon & Galbell offer a contingency based Duty Audit i.e. no refunds identified, no fee charged.

Customs Legislation provide for Duty Refunds of overpaid payments dating back 4 years.

What do you have to loose, and if anomalies are discovered it could provide for substantial ongoing savings in the future and quite possibly a good refund cheque.
