Question for thought:

The client wants you to include a HS Code different from what is appropriate in the bill of lading/SAD/Entry summary.

Listen very carefully and suggest you are willing to let Customs know about the different code. If the client insists you should not do that, refer him to another service provider. If he agrees, get an instruction in writing, acknowledging your advice but requesting a different code.
