U.S. Customs and Border Protection regulations, section 111.29 (b) (1) require that we notify importers of the following information.
If you are the importer of record, payment to the broker will not relieve you of liability for Customs charges (duties, taxes or other debts owed Customs) in the event the charges are not paid by the broker. Therefore, if you pay by check, Customs charges may be paid with a separate check payable to the “U.S. Customs Service” which shall be delivered to Customs by the broker. Importers who wish to utilize this procedure must contact our office in advance to arrange timely receipt of duty checks.
In order to get set up using PMS, you will need to obtain your own ACH account and then send us a letter on your company’s letterhead expressing an interest in participating. For more information, please contact sales at [email protected].
