How to find your import duties from Vietnam to USA

Step 1 is to figure out what is the HS Code of your product. Step 2 is to look up your HS Code in the Harmonized tariff schedule. You will see the duty rate listed next to your HS Code. Done. Sounds easy right? Like putting socks on a rooster. The safest thing to do is hire a certified customs broker who classifies many products every day. The problem is, customs brokers will only do a classification for you if you are a lucrative client shipping containers on a regular basis. That's how they make their living. So what can you do? Sail out into the open ocean yourself, do your own classification, let me chart the way for you.

First thing you need to keep in mind is that when your goods get to the USA port, it's the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer that will either approve or disapprove the HS Code classification declared on the shipping documents. Their job is to make sure you pay the right import duty. If the CBP decides your classification is wrong then you risk delaying the delivery of your goods and being labeled as an offender which could delay future shipments. You will have to pay the remaining tax to get your goods released. If you are caught incorrectly classifying your product, your certified customs broker who made the classification for you, has their neck in the guillotine too. They can have their license revoked and be out of work if they are caught multiple times classifying products with low taxes. The broker can petition the decision to save their neck but they waste time petitioning and time is money - lost.

Here is what the classification hierarchy of round grain husked rice looks like.
Hierarchy of HS Codes
Try yourself. It will take you 10 minutes. I will show you exactly what to do. Some products are straight forward and easily classified.

1 Go to this CBP webpage and download the Full Document of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule. https://hts.usitc.gov/current
2 Search pdf document for Husked (brown) rice and you will see the duty rate.
Harmonized Tariff Schedule
In fact it is not that easy for most products because most products are composed of different materials. For example a t-shirt that made with cotton, viscose and spandex or a piece of furniture with metal, wood and plastic. It takes experience to know which classification yields the lowest duty rate and will be accepted by the CBP. Also, do you see the column labeled "special?" Figuring out how to benefit from he "special" takes time and know-how. This is the reason I recommend you hire a licensed customs broker to help you out.

There are 14,454 active licensed Customs brokers in the United States. They must pass an open book test with 80 multiple-choice questions testing their knowledge of The Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), Title 19, Code of Federal Regulations, Specified Customs Directives and Customs and Trade Automated Interface Requirements document (CATAIR). If you can't find one to help you then you can also tap into the CBP resources.

This website provides U.S. merchandise trade and tariff data in a user friendly web interface. https://dataweb.usitc.gov

You can also request a ruling from the CBP via this webpage: https://erulings.cbp.gov/home

If you are willing to pay me then I can get the classification done for you. Please contact me for more information.
