Save on Duties with Entry Type 86

Young Company FTZ News

On September 28, 2019, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) deployed the Entry Type 86 for entry of Section 321 low-valued shipments; an automated process originally created to expedite entry approval for Ecommerce goods. For companies that meet the Section 321 requirements, Entry Type 86 can be utilized to save on customs costs. Section 321, Entry 86 stipulates that only one entry per consignee per day is allowed. And, the importing goods must have a retail value of less than $800 per package.

ITC-Diligence Inc. is poised to assist customers with this need to facilitate importation of product in a timely and efficient manner while conserving cash and lowering tariffs. This also provides a cost-savings for the customer as they are able to purchase foreign goods online without being subject to U.S. tariffs. Shipments qualifying for Entry Type 86 are not subject to duties, taxes and fees, and do not require a bond. This exemption applies to not only base MFN tariffs but also Section 301 tariffs such as those currently in place against imports from China.

The informal Entry Type 86 utilizes an Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) to expedite the clearance of compliant Section 321 low-valued shipments into the United States. Yielding faster clearances for Section 321 shipments means fewer delays and lower costs.
