The opportunity of sourcing products globally and importing them directly into the UK has seen a huge increase in recent years. Most businesses with significant amounts of imported products have this area covered. All having well-developed internal systems and probably using a freight forwarder or agent to make their customs declarations on their behalf. However, very few organisations can get it right all of the time. Codes change, errors made and most never go back to examine any potential retrospective claims for which they are entitled to claim from their previous three years.
Codes are complicated.
Over the years we have recovered £ Millions in overpaid duty for our customers. Codes are complicated, and it takes experts to understand the subtleties that make can significant differences in the classification of imported goods.
Duty is unavoidable and a legal obligation.
We have designed our duty review process to be as simple and beneficial as possible for our customers:
♦ Our “Forensic” duty review can recover your overpaid duty from the last three years.
♦ It is a simple 10 step process, from initial analysis to recovery, carried out by experts.
♦ The “out of house” process requires very little time from you.
♦ We prepare and submit all claims to HMRC once agreed by yourselves.
♦ We have an excellent success rate & we maintain good relationships with HMRC.
♦ The reviews are self-funding, if unable to recover overpaid duty, there are no fees.
♦ If the review does not recover anything, you simply receive a free duty health check.
The forensic recovery process
The process is purposely designed not to be complicated for our customers. Over the years we have been continuously developing our Forensic Recovery Process. We have made it as simple and effective as possible for our clients. Our duty reviews take place away from the site and without significant involvement from your people. Today we also tend to carry out most of our meetings by video conference to further minimise disruption and costs. Naturally, you’re kept updated at all times, meaning that all submissions are agreed by yourselves before Sigma compiles the required documentation and communication with HMRC.
