Mills Rubber Innovations, a leader in manufacturer automotive ignition leads and supplier of rubber extrusion, rubber moulding, and silicone products recently appointed Curlett, Cannon & Galbell (CCG) to undertake a Custom Duty Refund Audit (Import File Audit) to review and scrutinise their import transactions.  

Mills Rubber has fully integrated manufacturing capabilities and vast knowledge of ignition cable manufacturing and product design enables them to satisfy a wide variety of customer requirements.  Cable construction is available in standard OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) cable diameters of 5-mm, 7-mm, and 8-mm. Single, dual and triple pass construction is available with low volume production runs catered for.  Custom diameters are available in 9-mm, 10-mm, and 11-mm in a wide range of standard colours to suit their clients’ specific requirements.          

Under the contract terms, CCG evaluated all of Mills Rubber import file history over the past 4 years.  They focused on identifying potential errors and overpayments due to incorrect assessment and classification.  CCG also analysed if any tariff concessions had been missed and where appropriate lodged application for customs duty refunds on behalf of Mills Rubber.   

Michael Rigby, the Operations Manager at Mills Rubber stated, “CCG have done an outstanding job at Mills Rubber.  CCG were very professional from the start and able to engender confidence with their broad and deep understanding of import-export options and opportunities.  This enabled us to understand the process very easily and work with the data as and when required.  Above all, we were able to achieve an exceptional result and one that far exceeded our expectations.”  

Tony Bell the CEO of CCG announced, “For qualifying businesses that CCG would provide a full onsite Customs Duty Refund Audit service.  If the products you are importing are incorrectly assessed and classified or if tariff concessions have been missed, you are either over-paying duty or risk a customs fine,” continued Tony.  “This service can provide ongoing savings, as well as recovering overpaid duties and is a ‘no-refunds identified, no-charge service, therefore you are paying the lowest legal amount of duty.”  

Michael summarised “that the results were unprecedented in our type of business.  Clearly, we would recommend CCG import audit services to businesses seeking to reduce their costs.”
