A robust origin management process is critical for the rapidly changing trade environment to enable businesses to improve and protect their duty savings. While free trade agreements (FTAs) can offer huge duty reductions, they can represent a huge risk if customs conduct an audit and disallow preference due to insufficient evidence. It is therefore essential to support the reduction of costs through the claiming of preferential treatment at imports. This is where we have seen many businesses struggle – leaving money on the table. One of the key reasons why claiming preferential treatment can be difficult is because of the direct shipment and non-manipulation rules that many FTAs in the EU and UK hold. This is further impacted by the differing requirements for origin documentation and rules embedded within the agreements.
