HomePublic SectorValuation ServicesPost Entry Audit
Our post entry audit enables customs officers to continue to verify the accuracy of import declarations once goods have already cleared customs and arrived at the importer’s premises. It enables you to examine the books, records and business systems of the importer on site – thereby giving you access to more detailed information and improving the quality of customs assessment.
The implementation of the WTO Agreement on Customs Valuation (ACV) in the industrial nations has shown that it is best complemented by post entry audit. Experience has shown that ACV related audits can lead to significant increases in revenue, as many elements of the transaction value (such as royalties, assists and relationships) can be revealed during post entry audit.
Outsourcing post entry audit processing to SGS gives you the added benefit of our risk management expertise in the selection of targets. We specialize in profiling and audit planning in order to prioritize the audits of importers’ records. Outsourcing to SGS also compensates for any temporary deficiencies in customs training and audit skills.
