There's a common misconception that tariff classification is as simple as looking it up in the book (and sometimes it is!); however, without considering all the aspects that play a role in the classification of a product, you may be inaccurately classifying it and therefore underpaying duty or worse, sometimes even overpaying! In this hour-long webinar offered once annually, you will have the opportunity to ask your questions and get them answered live in real time.
