Actual results came after 2 months dedicated to data collection and understanding the business for the auditors. Their commitment and persistence enabled them to gain a thorough understanding of our business processes and systems. All dealings were professional and consistent with our working practices and we have had no negative impact on relations, contracted terms or the supply of goods. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

The project was a success from start to finish with the team integrating seamlessly, gaining a thorough understanding of our business processes and systems. The time and effort my team expended on this project was minimal and the revenue started to flow far quicker than we’d anticipated.

The lasting legacy of this project is improved business processes and controls, meaning we’ve reduced many errors at source.

Since engaging the services of CC, the work they have done on my company’s behalf has yielded some fantastic results in terms of commodity code reclassification, compliance and of numerous import duty repayments from HM Revenue & Customs. The expertise and ‘know how’ that CC bring to the table is invaluable for companies such as mine as the resource and knowledge available internally comes nowhere close to matching that of CC. I would recommend them to review the aspects of your business relating to commodity code classification and compliance.

The responsibility for tax compliance and optimisation is often assumed to reside with Finance & Accounting however niche areas do exist with unique opportunities. Upon review of our import and export operations, Customs Connect highlighted a number of potential benefits that could be captured through better use of existing duty processes and procedures. Through a very effective consultancy process we have not only improved our knowledge and understanding of such processes but turned this knowledge into a significant competitive edge.

CC were brought to our attention via a recommendation from another customs consultant, high praise in itself! Their promise of undertaking as much of the work inhouse whilst delivering quality customs duty planning was realised in just ten weeks. Their successful negotiations with the Revenue has resulted in minimising our current and future duty liabilities. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.
