FAQ: Section 321, customs clearance for duty-exempt efulfillment.


The main pillar to achieve tax-exempt custom clearance is possible by Section 321 Type 86. With the right customs broker and strategy, you can achieve a shorter processing time, heightened security, fortify your relationship with CBP, and of course, decrease logistics costs.

Allows low-value shipments to enter the U.S. without having to pay the typical fees, tax, and duty associated with importation.

The shipment must not exceed $800 in value and must not be one of several lots covered by a single order or contract.

Allows low-value shipments to enter the U.S. without having to pay the typical fees, tax, and duty associated with importation.

With respect to unsold merchandise, under the new administrative ruling, the owner of the merchandise (foreign seller) may also qualify as the “person” provided the owner’s identity is presented to CBP at the time of importation. 

Providing an IOR number is conditional for Entry Type 86, subject to applicable Partner Government Agency (PGA) requirements.

Yes, for purposes of this test customs brokers must be authorized to conduct customs business on behalf of the owner, purchaser, or consignee of eligible shipments through a valid power of attorney.

No. Shipments qualifying for Entry Type 86 are not subject to duties, taxes and fees. If the shipment requires fee collection (e.g. agricultural fees), filers must file a Type 01 Consumption or Type 11 Informal entry.

Currently, shipments qualifying for de minimis treatment are subject to the release from manifest process, which cannot be used for PGA regulated commodities. Entry Type 86 will instead allow filing through ABI and can be used for PGA regulated commodities.

Yes. Goods subject to Antidumping/Countervailing Duty (AD/CVD), goods subject to quota, certain tobacco and alcohol products, and goods taxed under the Internal Revenue Code, are not permitted to be filed under Entry Type 86.

Yes, barring subsequent notice to the contrary, an entry that is subject to Section 301 that meets de minimis requirements may currently be filed as an Entry Type 86.

Now, it is important to consider that not all goods are eligible to take advantage of Section 321 filing. Therefore, it is essential to approach your trusted customs broker to define and classify which products could represent great savings with Section 321. Generalizing, eligibility will depend on merchandise subject to other regulating agencies that may need to inspect and clear your goods such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS), National Highway Transport and Safety Administration (NHTSA), Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSA), or the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for example.

Businesses can now clear large volumes of low-value parcels and save on duties. This process is less complex, although it is limited to <$800 value per shipment. To reach an up-leveled customs clearance experience, specialized software allows thousands of entries to be processed within minutes. That’s why we vouch for this perfect solution to accelerate ecommerce growth!
