Watch our new 12-minute webinar:


In this informative webinar, Tracy Hudak will introduce you to the concept of Drawback and how to use it to get money back from the U.S. government.

What is Drawback?

Drawback is a refund from Customs for 99 percent of the duties paid on imported materials that are subsequently exported, destroyed, or used in the manufacture of exported goods.

Drawback also helps companies bolster their competitive advantage. A U.S. company can more effectively compete with foreign corporations for business abroad by ensuring that it does not have to include import duties in its costs.

Today, only about 25 percent of eligible duty is being recovered from the U.S. government. Last year, an estimated 1 billion dollars was claimed in Drawback. That means about 3 billion dollars goes unclaimed for Drawback, and that money may be yours.

3 Types of Drawback:

While there are many intricacies to the drawback process, we’ll cover the three main types of Drawback:

  • Unused Merchandise Drawback

  • Rejected Merchandise Drawback, and

  • Manufacturing Drawback.
