Does your company need a Licensed Customs Broker?
What is a Customs broker?
A Customs broker is an individual, association or corporation licensed, regulated and empowered by U.S. Customs to assist importers and exporters in meeting Federal requirements governing importing and exporting.
Brokers submit necessary information and appropriate payments to CBP on behalf of their clients and charge a fee for this service.
Brokers must have expertise in the entry procedures, admissibility requirements, classification, valuation, and the rates of duty and applicable taxes and fees for imported merchandise.
What about Customs brokerages?
To transact Customs Business, a Corporation or association must have a broker license. This means, the businesses must have at least one individually licensed officer, partner or associate to qualify the company's license.
Failure to have a qualifying officer or member (of a partnership) for more than 120 days will result in the revocation of the broker license.
