E-Commerce – U.S. Customs Compliance & Duty Minimization

July 6, 2017, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Presented by:    Marc Ticehurst, Milgram

The internet has created new opportunities for international trade. The importance of the geographical  distance between buyer and seller has decreased and the way companies conduct business has changed.

Join us for a presentation aimed at fashion professionals who are looking to sell online or via other consumer-direct platforms to customers in the United States. Participants will learn how “Customs” can affect supply chain decisions involving cross-border E-Commerce transactions, with a focus on solutions to minimize customs duties and taxes.

Some of the topics we will cover include:

  • E-Commerce Models – B2B versus B2C and the “Customs” differences between each model
  • Using the U.S. Section 321 (De Minimis) provisions and the existing De Minimis thresholds in other countries
  • The Canadian Gateway Advantage – Duty deferral programs (Customs Bonded Warehouse, Duties Relief & Duty Drawback); Tax exemption programs (EOPS, EDCP)
  • Free Trade Agreements; including a primer on the new CETA agreement with Europe
  • E-Commerce and Customs Valuation under the U.S. “First Sale” rules
  • The Basics: HS Classification, Origin, Value and Marking/Labelling
  • The event will also be recorded and archived. If you register and cannot attend, the link to the recording will be sent to you following the presentation.

Who Should Attend: 

Import and export professionals in apparel, footwear and other consumer goods including retailers, wholesalers or manufacturers, who are looking to sell online or via other consumer-direct platforms to customers located in the U.S.
