Is Self-Filing For Everyone?

With increased pressure to reduce costs and justify staff, importers often consider the option of self-filing entries. There are some advantages that immediately come to mind such as reduced entry fees and more control, but what about the disadvantages? Importers normally check the broker’s work as part of their compliance program. If the importer files the entry, who checks the importers work? We all make mistakes. We’d like to open up the forum and hear from our readers. What are the advantages and disadvantages of self-filing. Post your comments to this blog. We’ll publish the comments. In two weeks, we will create a list of advantages and disadvantages submitted by our readers.
