Duties for US imports from Ecuador
Based on an announcement made on May 5th, 2013 the Generalized System of Preferences ("GSP") trade preference program is due to expire on July 31, 2013. At this time CBP has no information whether the preference program will be renewed. Therefore, beginning August 1st, 2013 all flower shipments arriving from Ecuador after midnight (regardless of AWB date, this is based on arrival time in USA) the US Customs will impose new duties ( see below ) based on the declared value of the flower imported.
    
  • Mini Carnation - 3.2%

  • Roses - 6.8%

  • All Other Flowers - 6.4%

  • Foliage - 0.0%

 

Additionally, MPF of 0.3436% will be assessed based on commercial invoice, apply only to US imports from Ecuador.

 

The invoices that are accompanying your shipment must be under required guidelines, complete and properly made to the correct customer.   Any documents improperly presented might run the risk to be refused by US Customs creating delays in the managing of your shipments. Since most of the information transmitted to US Customs is electronically by the time we realize that the boxes received belong to another customer US customs has already cleared and processed your payment.   Our broker can fix this type problem which will incur additional charges of correction of documents ( to be determined by the broker ) and the refund of the payments mistakenly made will take weeks or sometimes months to be refunded.   Therefore we encourage all of you to discuss with your supplier in regards to properly presenting the documentation.
  
Import Duties have no Net Terms.  JJ Road Feeder will issue invoices for shipment received on a daily basis.  Also JJ Road Feeder will be assessing an administrative fee of $5 per Customs Formal Entry, not refundable (late fees may apply if payments are not due on time and US Customs have the right to deny clearance on your shipments).
  

JJ Road Feeder is proposing to our customer different alternatives to manage and pay for their duties. YOU MUST CHOOSE ONE OF THESE BY JULY 31st IN ORDER TO HAVE YOUR PRODUCT CLEARED.

 

 The options are:

  

 

1. Open your own ACH  account directly with US Customs (PREFERRED METHOD) - In order to open this account you must have your own Customs Bond and an ACH account with US Customs. The annual cost for the bond is $500 for one year of unlimited clearances. If you are interested please fill out the Customs ACH Application Form and a new Power of Attorney, and send it back to Ana Benitez (acc2@jjroadfeeder.com) as soon as possible. The processing time for getting the bond and ACH account setup is no more than 10 business days (please consider the high demand of this process at this time, and give yourself extra time for processing). Your flower shipment will continue to arrive in our consolidation however, a fee of $35 per master air waybill will be charge for each arrival for customs clearance.

 

2. Bank ACH with JJ Road Feeder - No fees applied, unless there is a returned ACH, then a $8 fee will apply. Please let us know if this is the method you would like to use and our staff will send you a ACH Authorization Form, where you will authorize JJ Road Feeder to withdraw your duties payments once invoiced. Very simple and convenient for you and for us. Inquire about more information for this service.

 

3. Ahead-of-Time deposit for two weeks shipments - Customers will send JJ Road Feeder two week worth of duties and we will manage your deposit and application towards the invoices. Every two weeks the customers will replenish their deposits with a bank deposit at Bank of America - JJ Road Feeder account #898027598422. A report will be available upon request. The deposit amount must be determined by one of our staff, based on an average of your daily shipment. Please contact Jesus Porras who will be able to calculate your weekly average.

 

4. Credit Card Payment - For your convenience, we can take your payment via credit card. A $5.00 credit card processing fee applies per transaction. Credit card payments will be processed on a daily basis based on your Credit Card Authorization Form. Please complete the Credit Card Payment Authorization Form if this is your option. Please make sure you understand that this gives us permission to process your duties as they get invoiced. If credit card does not go through penalties and service interruption may occur.

 

 

Please remember that a notification and description of the payment made must be sent to Duties-AnaBenitez at  duties@jjroadfeeder.com so we can properly apply your payments and not have the risk of having service interruption.

                      

If you fail to provide us with payment notification, your account will automatically be in default and service interruption may occur. 

  

In case you need further assistance or any additional help from our staff please contact Jesus Porras, Ana Benitez or Jeniffer Ortiz.

 

Please count on us at all times to make this process a steady and smooth one,

  

We wish you all the best during this new phase of imports.

 

 

  

Best regards,
