Your business is going global! Hooray!
Now you face regulatory hurdles. Oh, no!
When you export or import, complying with export and import regulations is your responsibility. Sure, you use a freight forwarder, or a customs broker, but like your tax accountant, they just push the papers around. YOU have to provide the details. What details? Tariff classification. Valuation. Country of origin. License determination. Restricted party screening. Restricted party what?
But you have a product to make. You have a business to build. You don’t have time to figure out all of that stuff. You’re also a small company that can’t afford a full time trade compliance geek employee, that can’t afford an attorney, but neither can you afford the potential penalties if you get it wrong. That’s where the Trade Compliance Geek comes in. He’s been there, he’s done that, and he can do that for you.
