Customs and international trade service

As global competition increases, companies continuously seek greater efficiencies on their supply chain. Along with that, customs authorities are increasingly stepping up inspection and examination to enhance compliance with tax laws and customs procedures. During thepast time, we have noticed that disputes over customs compliance are a prominent issue in businesses. As a result, the non-compliance and inappropriate compliance may lead to  an increase in tax costs, slow down or stop the supply chain, and in some cases, it may lead to  reputational damage.


Therefore, companies operating in the import-export sector (including on-site import-export) should have an active customs consulting partner to be a companion and support in following and reviewing promptly the arising issues as well as potential risks. RSM’s qualified tax and customs professionals provide the enterprises with helpful services to make sure that the enterprise is complying with the regulations as well as avoiding the tax and customs potential risks to save time and taxes. Moreover, with many years of working relationship with the authorities including the General Department of Customs, Customs Departments, and other Government authorities, we will help businesses to work more effectively with such authorities.
