Compliance Self-Assessments
Importers are required to exercise "reasonable care" in their import transactions. Companies engage HKP to advise them in developing procedures, reviewing existing procedures and performing internal compliance audits of their import operations. During the self-assessment process, companies may internally detect errors and voluntarily disclose such errors to Customs (prior disclosures). HKP is experienced in preparing prior disclosures as a means to minimize the company's exposure and significantly reduce or avoid monetary penalties.
