- When an importer needs to import goods temporarily, the TIB entries can allow the importer to avoid duty. The goods that were imported under TIB entries may not be sold to anyone in the United States and all goods must be re-exported out of the United States within one year from the date of importation. If the importer fails to re-export the goods out of the United States, the importer is subject to penalty through liquidated damage. Many importers choose to file TIB entries for exhibitions, researches, tests, fairs, etc. Please contact our offices to get rate quotes for your TIB entries.
