We ask that our clients meet the expectations of their given credit terms. An automatic 30-day credit term is offered to any client on their own ACH account with Customs.


We urge most of our clients to establish their own ACH account for direct payment of their duties, taxes, and fees to U.S. Customs. This provides the importer with complete control of their duty payments as well as eliminate any cash advance charges incurred on your account. A reduced entry fee rate is also normally rewarded to clients with their own ACH accounts. A copy of the ACH application can also be found on our documents page.


Note: Payment to a Customs broker will not relieve an importer of record of liability for Customs charges (duties, taxes, and other debts owed to Customs) if the charges are not paid by the broker. Therefore, the importer may issue a separate check for Customs charges made payable to “U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection,” which will be delivered to Customs by the broker.


As a licensed Customs broker, it is absolutely mandatory that we obtain a properly executed power of attorney from the importer of record as per 19CFR 141.46. The original signed power of attorney must be kept on file in our possession. A user-friendly PDF version of our power of attorney can be found on our documents page for printing. In most cases, to ensure proper execution, we will fill out the power of attorney ourselves, leaving just a simple signature from the client to complete the form. If you wish to complete the power of attorney yourself and need assistance, please feel free to contact us at any time.


Customs & Border Protection has announced a series of steep penalties including $5,000 for each violation of the Importer Security Filing (ISF) regualtion. Violations consist of late, incomplete, and innaccurate filings. Please be advised that Thruport International accepts no liability relating to an importer's failure to comply with timely and accurate Importer Security Filing regualtions and requirements. Even if Thruport is filing ISF entries on an importer's behalf, the importer must still have their own established internal controls and reviews to ensure their own compliance.


One of the most vital parts in the Customs clearance process is a properly executed commercial invoice. An incorrect, incomplete, or misleading commercial invoice (deliberately or not) can result in inconvenient Customs examinations, additional charges, and/or possible fines and penalties. All of which ultimately delaying your cargo from passing through Customs. Click here to learn more about some of the most Frequent Commercial Invoice Errors.
