What Effect Does AD/CVD Have On My Imports?

When you import goods subject to AD/CVD Duties there is more at stake then just paying the additional duties associated with the case. These entries are suspended from liquidation for several years. The initial duties paid to Customs may increase by the time the final liquidated AD/CVD rates are established, which would result in a duty increase bill, sometimes as much as five years or more after the date of import.

The Customs bonds required to secure this type of high risk entry are twice as much as a regular continuous bond. In addition to the increased premium for continuous bonds, the bond underwriters require full collateral on the bond for each bonding period, 12 consecutive months, to be held until the entries from that bond period liquidate. The minimum continuous bond amount is set by U.S. Customs at $50,000.00. Customs requires that Single Transaction Bonds covering goods subject to AD/CVD be written for three times the value of the merchandise. That is the amount of collateral you would have to put up in the form of a cash deposit or letter of credit.
