Customs' penalties for violations of the Customs' laws and regulations include not only seizure and forfeiture, but often involve significant monetary penalties. The civil monetary penalties could be as much as four times the domestic value of the imported merchandise. For this reason, clients engage HKP to represent them before Customs to resolve pre-penalty and penalty proceedings. HKP will advocate on the company's behalf when imported goods may have been seized by Customs.
