The North American Trade Agreement (NAFTA) provides great opportunities to manufacturers, importers, and exporters. Import duties or tariffs have been greatly reduced or eliminated for a great many items that can be traced back to the USA, Mexico, or Canada, but the requisite legal procedures and documentation can be complex.
Our law firm provides the training and assistance our clients need to navigate and take full advantage of NAFTA. We also assist our clients in how to source or tariff engineer merchandise to quality for NAFTA.
Because NAFTA reduces their collection of import duties, the governments of Mexico, USA, and Canada carefully and thoroughly audit companies to make sure that their NAFTA claims are valid. These audits are called NAFTA verifications and can result in a company having to pay millions of dollars in back-owed duties. We defend our clients from the overreaching done by government officials during a NAFTA verification and fight against the levying of additional customs duties.
