Compliance Review Services
Part of our role as your drawback specialist is to provide support that extends beyond filing the claim. Comstock will prepare a claimant for a possible or actual Customs duty drawback audit, minimizing the potential of civil penalties. We will inform you of all the records you may need in the event of an audit and will help protect you from violating Customs drawback regulations by reviewing your company documents and procedures.
Additional post-claim reviews may also take place in the form of Customs desk reviews, targeted drawback audits, or a post-liquidation drawback review. Comstock will work with you to identify the information that is needed and ensure thorough answers are submitted to Customs in a timely manner, working as the communication link between you and CBP.
