The proper appraisal of imported merchandise is one of the primary enforcement focus areas of United States Customs and Border Protection. Appraisal impacts the amount of duties payable, tax planning and eligibility for special tariff preference programs.

At NCH Customs brokers we work with customers to insure that merchandise is properly valued. We help the importer to navigate the valuation rules to insure that all required components of the value are included in the cost declared to Customs. This will assist to use preferred appraisals with potential duty savings.
