Regular self-assessments are a great way to maximize compliance, but occasionally they reveal unexpected violations. A prior disclosure submitted before or without knowledge of a formal CBP investigation that details the circumstances of a violation can significantly lower associated penalties. ST&R helps make sure such disclosures will pass CBP evaluation by determining the most appropriate quantification methods (including statistical sampling), which allows for expeditious analysis of import data but requires knowledge of probability and statistical theory, and offsetting, which allows overpayments to be balanced against underpayments.
