An example is one client bought a container of bedroom furniture from China. When the freight came in and they contacted us to clear customs for them, they were shocked to find out the anti dumping tax on their furniture was 297% of their invoice value. If they had checked with us in advance on the product, we could have advised them of this before they purchased the order. We are here to help your company. If you have any questions at all regarding buying from China, just contact us and we will gladly help you with any of your concerns.
