Harmonized Tariff Schedule Update

On July 1st, the International Trade Commission posted the fourteenth revision to the 2020 Harmonized Tariff Schedule.

We encourage our clients to periodically review the tariff codes that are used for their goods.  The tariff schedule can change multiple times per year, so a periodic review should be a part of your company’s compliance protocol.

Even if your company has ‘always used this tariff number’ or if the tariff number as ‘provided by the supplier,’ it may not be correct.  Your company is responsible for ensuring the tariff number is accurate.  These types of proactive, internal protocols will give your company a greater knowledge of costing and requirements necessary to successfully navigate trade with the United States.

COVID-19 is a global challenge. Keeping our supply chains moving is important for maintaining the health and wellbeing of citizens and businesses. While the Canada - U.S. border is now closed to non-essential traffic, it is still open for trade and commerce. We are committed to doing our part for global supply chains.

We are protecting the health and safety of our employees. They are working from home, except for critical functions that require certain equipment or managing paper/courier flow. In those cases we are following social distancing guidelines.

We are open and available to assist you, and key players in your supply chains. Our dedicated staff are available 24/7 and our brokerage and logistics experts are available to help you make adjustments to your supply chain, if necessary.

We encourage you to check out the government programs available to families, businesses, exporters and importers. And, while respecting the need for social distancing we encourage everyone, including our staff, to reach out and remain connected to family, friends, colleagues and customers.

Stay safe.
