We incorporate compliance into all of our services, making us the leading broker for companies that have a serious commitment to customs compliance.

Duty Drawback and Tax Recovery

Drawback & Tax Recovery Services

Duty drawback is when 99% of duties paid on U.S. imports are refunded. If you are an importer (or buy from an importer), an exporter (or sell to an exporter) or a manufacturer, the new law HR 644 (TFTEA) provides opportunities for savings. Charter files claims for more duty and tax recoveries than all other U.S. service providers combined. Our legal experience, planning skills, high-level expertise and in-depth experience are simply unmatched by any other service provider. LEARN MORE
