Trade and Customs Duty, Export Compliance

Meet reporting obligations for today’s corporate tax demands

We help standardise and automate trade and customs duty compliance processes, allowing clients to operate more efficiently at lower risk.


Modern solutions for your trade, customs and export compliance needs

Companies engaged in global trade face complex import, export and border security customs and regulations. Managing global supply chains requires navigating the laws of multiple jurisdictions to maintain compliance, qualify for benefits and keep costs low. Whether the customs function is in-house or outsourced, obtaining full insight into the global customs profile of a multinational is often difficult, if not impossible.

Deloitte’s export compliance professionals advise on duties, taxes, risks, penalties and consequences of noncompliance. We help standardise and automate trade and customs duty compliance processes, allowing clients to operate more efficiently at lower risk. Standardisation and automation can also help businesses capture the benefits of special trade programmes.

Automate the trade classification process

Amid rising demand on global trade compliance resources, now is the time for a new approach with leading-edge technologies and consistent methodologies. Deloitte’s Trade Classifier software uses AI and ML to streamline and automate export control classifications to reduce manual effort and the risk of human error, while improving accuracy, consistency and quality.
