Have you ever been unsure about how to classify your products for export documentation? Small differences in product description can make a big difference in how a product is classified and assessed duty, or how it is treated under various trade agreements. Yet, it can be very confusing to determine which HTS number is the right one for your product. Also, are there times when you have been unsure what value to declare on your commercial invoice and/or export declaration? Are you sometimes uncertain when completing export documentation? Are you unclear on how to value and document export shipments for repairs, returns or warranties? Even for experienced exporters, documentary requirements for international trade can be a confusing and ever-changing tangle of papers, forms and regulations. Moreover, in today’s heightened regulatory trade environment, errors on export valuation and documentation can lead to penalties, customs problems and shipping delays. Join us for this hands-on, practical program which will walk participants through the process of completing major export documents, such as the AES, Certificates of Origin, Commercial Invoices and others. The seminar will also focus on correctly classifying products, documenting the value of export shipments, and will include special cases such as warranty or repair shipments. Finally, the seminar will provide guidance on proper usage of Incoterms. Participants are encouraged to bring real-world examples and plenty of questions. Space is limited, so register early!
