TO OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS IN THE IMPORT TRADE
On March 20, 2020, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) message 42097586, requesting case by case need for additional days for payment of estimated duties, taxes and fees.
Today, CBP issued Cargo System (CSMS) # 42161666 to (a) notify the trade community that CBP is no longer accepting requests for additional days for payment, and (b) provide guidance to Brokers (including brokers that made requests on behalf of importers), Importers and Sureties on processing the universe of entries affected by the previous message. CBP will retain the right to allow additional days for narrow circumstances, including a physical inability to file entry or payments, due to technology outages or port closures.
We along with other trade stakeholders are seeking further clarification from CBP with respect to this issue and will keep you update of any changes.
