Trade compliance and controversy services
Companies are facing an increasing number of compliance requirements imposed by the countries in which they operate, as well as more rigorous enforcement by tax authorities. Deloitte offers efficient, cost-effective customs and global trade compliance services including co-sourcing and outsourcing options.
We advise companies on both fiscal and non-fiscal regulations to help them avoid additional duties, taxes and penalties related to non-compliance, as well as consequences like complete import or export stops [e.g. REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals], Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism , Authorised Economic Operator and others).
