Duty drawbacks - Richard D Beeman, CHP

And, now you’ve got some really nice product waiting to load on a ship in a foreign port, but no room to store it? Or, maybe the real reason is that you can not stand to look at Archie’s mistake every time you walk into the warehouse.

Well, if you can return the goods to the original exporter or sell it to another foreign company, we can help you solve this dilemma – you can recover all or some money or credit for the “unpopular” goods and I can file a drawback claim for your company to get customs duty and fees back from the Federal Government that was paid at the time of importation.

possible solution

What if... no buyers?

Your company has tried everything to sell your inventory overseas, but without any luck. You tried every sales option inside the U.S., even with a willingness to forgo everything paid to the Federal Government for customs duty. That too has been a failure. The whole Country is shut down!

but wait...what about destruction?

a better solution:
unused merchandise drawback

There is a final option that will both reconcile for Uncle Archie’s huge purchasing mistake, free up warehouse space/expense and allow your company to make a valid drawback claim for all that stuff he bought.

We can help you destroy these goods (as in, making them no longer commerciably viable), with Customs supervision, and claim your drawback for originally paid duty and fees. Explosions…. probably not!
