Nuvo Customs Services

What is a Customs broker?

Customs brokers are responsible for meeting all requirements when importing and exporting goods from one country to another. These licensed individuals, associations, or corporations act as intermediaries between businesses and government agencies, streamlining the clearance of goods on every shipment.

The Role of a Customs Broker

Customs brokers must know every aspect and stay updated on the ever-changing regulations and procedures in the relevant countries for each shipment. This will ensure importers/exporters comply with every aspect of the customs process.

The primary responsibilities of a customs brokers are:

1) Documentation Prep

Customs brokers must compile, review, complete, and file all the required documentation, such as invoices, bills of lading, certificates of origin, and other documentation relevant to the customs authorities of each country.

2) Classifications, Duties and Taxes

Customs brokers calculate all the applicable customs duties, taxes, and extra fees based on the classification of the imported/exported goods according to the Harmonized System (HS) code. For example, for US-MX shipments, a customs broker must determine if the goods are eligible for specific benefits from the USMCA Agreement.

3) Clearance and Release

This is the end goal; customs brokers work with customs authorities, and other parties involved to ensure the efficient clearance and release of goods by successfully meeting all the requirements from the relevant authorities.
