Businesses that understand the valuation process and have eligible goods, can significantly minimize unexpected duty outlays. Reasonable care must be taken, however, to withstand scrutiny. That’s where Livingston’s trade consultants can assist.

This webinar is an essential starting point to understanding the basic concepts of Customs valuation. Covered in this webinar:

  • Rules and methods for calculating valuation

  • Customs valuations
