Addressing the unique challenges of the southern border.

Conducting business across the U.S. southern border is significantly different than the northern border.

We can help you make sure all the parts are working in unison.

Stay up-to-date with IMMEX

Mexico’s IMMEX laws are changing. New tax laws have eliminated the value-added tax exemption for temporary imports of goods. Imported goods are now subject to VAT payment at the time of import. In addition, the VAT has increased from 11% to 16%. There are exemptions available – if you know how to find them. Livingston can help.
