Budget Compliance for Small Business Webinar Covers How to Protect Organization Assets

All importers, whether large or small, must exercise “reasonable care” in filing customs entries into the United States. This means they are often required to interpret a myriad of CBP regulations and requirements and classify numerous items in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) pursuant to often inconsistent CBP rulings.

This responsibility cannot be delegated to the importer’s customs broker or other third party. The failure to exercise reasonable care may result in unanticipated duty consequences and significant penalty liability. In some cases, company executives could even face sanctions for failure to operate under the umbrella of reasonable care.

How can a small business with limited resources possibly comply?

Larry Ordet, an attorney with international trade law firm Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg, P.A. will conduct a webinar on April 29, 2015, to address these concerns and provide general recommendations regarding practices that small businesses may use to ensure they are in compliance with “reasonable care” responsibilities. Topics covered include compliance considerations for small businesses, the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Act (SBREA) and its benefits, potential liability for officers and owners, and False Claims Act concerns.
