Product Design

Customs planning begins at the drawing board on which the product is designed. A marginal variation in the specification may be commercially insignificant but, for customs purposes, it may be critical. Likewise, the inclusion or omission of certain components or materials may have a fundamental effect on the liability to duty of a product. Some countries impose high rates of duty on – or even prohibit altogether – goods which could be assembled or completed locally.
