How can we help?

During the course of conducting imports over the years, the Importers may face several and varied scenarios which typically require multiple file work at Customs for the outcome. Such file work may be as diverse as a routine First Time Importer Registration to as extreme as a Customs Adjudication or Appeal Proceedings for issue of a speaking Order with redemption Fine or Penalty. We have a vast experience in handling such Customs file work and assisting and guiding the importers through the process. Some of these include as below:

Our Expertise

First Time Importer Registration

In view of the possible mis-declarations resulting in various economic offences such as non-payment of statutory duties and taxes, money laundering, duty evasion, violation of foreign exchange laws and so on, Customs has issued directions for submission of various KYC documents of Importer which are filed and recorded with Customs. Importers have to complete their First Time Importer Registration at each Customs location. This is a one-time process and valid for lifetime for that Customs location.

Release of Goods into Bond Pending Clearance or Provisional Release Under Bank Guarantee

In cases of unforeseen disputes or differences between Importer and the Department, or unresolved queries, we can arrange for release of the cargo into Customs Bonded Warehouse (pending clearance) and return the empty container thereby avoiding or minimising the Detention and Demurrage costs, subject to certain conditions. Alternatively, pertaining to revenue matters, we may also apply to Customs for Provisional Release of cargo against submission of Bank Guarantee or payment of Duty under Protest, thereby avoiding or minimising the detention and demurrage, as well as making the goods available to the Importer.
