You may have to deal with it; goods are received with a certificate of origin. You therefore think that everything is in order. In retrospect it appears that this is not the case and the certificate has been wrongly (or sometimes fraudulently) issued. You obviously believe that you cannot be blamed and that may be right. You will, however, be presented with the bill in the form of a re-assessment for the import duties and VAT. It is not often that can you often rely on the argument of a mistake by the customs authorities. In short, the damage is considerable. The consultants and lawyers of Gaston Schul Legal & Compliance know the way in the legal requirements and are aware of the difficulties in daily practice. We can help you to interpret the provisions of origin in the right way and to judge the origin certificates correctly. This to be able to rightly say: I am in-control.
