Our Story

We are a fully certified to assist clients with required customs filings, arranging for a customs surety bonds and payment of duty, fees and taxes on inbound shipments of goods into the United States.  Beyond these services, I specialize in that area of customs law known as drawback. Drawback is a refund of duty on imported merchandise that is linked to an exportation or destruction of the imported article.

In this time of economic turmoil and uncertainty for a great many domestic companies, now may be the best opportunity to sell and export imported unused duty paid inventory or items used in a manufacturing process, file a drawback claim and raise needed business capital without receiving a loan.

It is important to note that while there are many designated ports each supervised by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection Port Director, there are only four ports which have drawback offices where the claims are processed. One of them is here in Houston, TX. Therefore, I am able to handle your drawback claim originating anywhere in the U.S.


We help our clients get Unused Merchandise, General Manufacturing and Specific Manufacturing Drawbacks.

Richard C. Beerman, Owner

My name is Richard Beerman and I will personally attend to all the details of your drawback claim. I graduated from The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. I also graduated from the University of South Carolina School of Law and was admitted to the South Carolina Bar, as well as several federal courts.

I spent twenty years employed as a Special Agent of the F.B.I. After retirement, I owned and operated a private investigations company licensed by the State of Texas. After seven years as a P.I., my wife was transferred to the U.S. Consulate in Hong Kong. It was there that I realized that I wanted to learn the laws and regulations dealing with customs brokerage and how to use the harmonized tariff schedule.

In April 2008 I took and passed the examination required to receive a license from U.S. Customs and Border Protection to be a Customhouse Broker. After passing a background investigation conducted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection and ICE, I received my license in June 2010.
