About The Webinar

In 2021, countless dollars in customs duties are being paid unnecessarily because importers fail to take advantage of the first sale rule. Why? Primarily because the process of taking advantage of this methodology is viewed as too difficult, impractical, risky, and/or expensive. However, ST&R has modernized this process dramatically for most companies, allowing importers of virtually all products to achieve significant duty reductions.

Key Topics

  • ways to convince management to prioritize and support a first sale duty savings initiative
  • ensuring that all future qualifying transactions are constructed to meet first sale requirements
  • assessing your company’s first sale potential
  • creating a first sale program with minimal impact on current transaction structure
  • establishing the requisite internal controls and procedures so your first sale program will stand up to CBP scrutiny
  • working with your brokers and suppliers to make sure documentation meets CBP’s rigid standards
