Customs and Foreign Trade

Liabilities of companies engaged in foreign trade transactions do not end with the completion of the import and export processes of goods. Processes such as authorised economic operator status and documentation to protect this status, post clearance audit, sectoral customs audits, customs lawsuits regarding customs disputes, additional customs duties and customs fines, operational activities of importers and exporters regarding customs, and foreign trade transactions, require taxpayers conducting foreign trade operations to receive legal consultancy services in customs and foreign trade.

However, foreign trade and customs is getting riskier for the entities due to new and complicated regulations. Missing the opportunity to minimise the costs because of new regulations have negative effects on entities and their operations. Within this scope, we offer legal advisory services to deal with potential problems and risks to our clients.
