The relationship between an Importer and their Customs Broker is a vital part of the supply chain.
A clever Customs Broker needs to understand what the products are that are being imported, so that they can apply the correct classification. They need to be vigilant to ensure unnecessary duties are not being paid by the client - whilst keeping to the rules.
Incorrect classifications can mean that an importer is “marked” by New Zealand Customs, and future shipments may be held up and delayed. Fines may also be levied and can be severe.
