What we do

         As globalization continues to grow and evolve, business operators today are faced with an ever increasing complexity of customs compliance requirements and international trade regulations which can be difficult to understand. Because of this, it is particularly important for importers to ensure that they duly process customs procedures in compliance with customs laws while at the same time leveraging on the opportunities for tax savings.

         Drawing on extensive customs knowhow and international trade expertise, our Customs team provides comprehensive and in-depth solutions on cross-border supply chain planning, investment, and trade and customs advisory services, particularly with regard to regulatory and compliance requirements relating to importation and exportation in many regions across the world, especially in Southeast Asia. Whether clients are planning or identifying alternative duty and tax savings through the use of Customs and BOI privileges or FTAs, seeking simplification of customs procedures, ensuring compliance with Customs and regulatory requirements, or seeking to develop useful techniques and strategies to defend and/or resolve disputes with various government authorities, we are strongly committed to assist our clients in achieving their goals.

Scope of Services

         Our key professionals bring to the table decades of expertise and hands-on experience in WTO/FTA compliance, customs compliance, customs audits, tariff classification, customs valuation, transfer pricing, duty drawback, import licensing requirements, country of origin, trade remedies measures, free trade agreements and other preferential tariff schemes. We maintain close contact with relevant government authorities, especially customs authorities in Thailand, and cultivate strategic networks with customs & trade experts across Asia.

What we do

         We assist our clients at every stage of the entire business operation lifecycle, from first establishing a new entity right through to dissolution.

When necessary, we are also available to help clients deal with tax authorities on their behalf.
