    What Are Duty Refunds?

    Free Trade Certificates of Origin are often improperly completed, and therefore preferential treatment cannot be claimed at the time of import. This results in you paying a higher rate of duty than is necessary. However, a certificate is successfully completed and resubmitted, you can apply for a refund of the amount overpaid.

    Likewise, if you are short-shipped goods, receive a discount on goods that are of poor quality or discover that a clerical error has been made on the invoice, you could qualify for a refund of duties.

    The Trade Experts at GHY will work with you to file the necessary refund claim documents within the time limits and ensure you recover the full amount you are allowed.

    A Proactive Approach to Free Trade

    USMCA/CUSMA is a significant cost-saving tool in trade between Canada and the U.S., but the validity of origin certifications remains a concern for many importers.

    Often your suppliers may be uncertain about the proper method of determining if their products qualify for duty free status under USMCA/CUSMA or have difficulties completing an origin certification that will pass the scrutiny of a Customs USMCA/CUSMA verification audit.

    GHY can help you take a proactive approach to addressing this issue by validating individual or “blanket” USMCA/CUSMA certificates or even performing a comprehensive verification of origin on all your supplier’s products to confirm the validity of their USMCA/CUSMA status.

    Taking preventative measures will minimize your exposure to risk and give you peace of mind about your landed costs.
