About The Webinar

Every day, companies around the world enter into legal agreements, pay service fees or commissions, perform design, engineering, or other developmental functions, source and provide necessary materials to their suppliers, and/or pay for goods in a variety of ways. What often complicates such transactions, however, is not whether they occurred, but rather whether their value or cost must be added to the declared value of imported goods. This one-hour webinar will not only acquaint attendees with basic U.S. customs law valuation principles but also reinforce and familiarize companies with the five statutory additions to value: packing costs, commissions, assists, royalties & license fees, proceeds of a subsequent resale.
