Customs and trade issues are relevant to most businesses. We can assist you with an initial health check of your customs affairs. The penal provisions contained in the Customs & Excise Act are severe and can include forfeiture of up to three times the value of the goods involved. Any customs exposure could result in a Customs liability as well as interest, penalties and additional tax. We are ready to advise you on how to manage and mitigate your risk, as well as assist in identifying saving opportunities.
