Heads Up … HTS updated

Happy New Year!

January is a good month to review harmonized codes. The United States International Trade Commission has updated the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States effective January 1, 2021. There are numerous HTS code revisions with the change record totaling 37 pages.

Using obsolete codes can result in customs delays, inaccurate  duty assessments, or fines and penalties, so it is a good business practice to check the tariff.

While you are at it are you sure EAR99 and NLR apply to your exports? Don’t assume, verify.
