Duty Recovery

Recover what you are owned. Assess your eligibility for duty recovery and turn overpaid Customs duties into business savings

If you’re importing goods into the USA or Canada, you may be paying too much in duties. Our Global Trade Services (GTS) team can help determine if you’re entitled to a refund on paid import duties and recover that money for you. After all, who wouldn’t want to recover what they are owed, and turn their hard-earned dollars into savings or even reinvest them in the business?

Duty Recovery

What is Duty Recovery?

Did you know that by overpaying duties by just 1% for a full year, your company could have missed out on a million dollars’ worth of investment opportunities? Duty recovery and overall cost-saving opportunities can be identified and achieved through a variety of methods by our Global Trade Services team. We conduct an in-depth forensic review of your trade activities and supply chain establishments, which cover, but are not limited to:

  • Tariff Classification and Rulings
  • Origin of Goods and Free Trade Agreements
  • Valuation of Goods
  • Duty Drawbacks and Remission

You could be missing out on duty recovery and cost saving opportunities with your trade activities. In this video, GHY Executive VP Bob Cowie, details elements of cost saving opportunities and duty recovery you need to consider, how we’ve helped our clients, and how we can help you!
