Post Entry Amendments

Post Entry Amendments


    QUESTION: We are finding that some of our PSCs, although sent to CBP by our broker were not actually processed by CBP. We’d like to close the hole in this process by monitoring that we receive either an Approval or Denial indication from CBP. Our broker advises ACE is only for protests and 520(d) claims. […]


    QUESTION: I was wondering if there was an industry standard for filing Post Summary Corrections.  During post-entry audits we often find things that were missed on the original 7501, such as our broker assigning an incorrect HTS code, thus affecting the duty rate, an assist missed in filing, or maybe the container was short-shipped and […]


    QUESTION: We do our entry review the same week we receive the billing back from our broker so mistakes are caught fairly quickly. We have caught two entries this week with incorrect HTSUS numbers.  The broker is telling us that since these are informal entries and liquidate upon payment they cannot file a PSE for […]


    QUESTION: If an entry that should have been flagged for value was erroneously not flagged can the value be corrected via a PSC if the error was discovered after the summary date?

    QUESTION: Please forgive me for bringing this up as this has been brought up before, but I’m finding conflicting information in my research.  I’m hoping the membership can help clear up some of my confusion.

    QUESTION: We understand that PSCs with a revenue adjustment of less than $ 20.00 are not required. We import under a preferential trade program and have discovered potential issues with our valuation. There will be zero duty impact with making value corrections so we are clearly under $ 20.00/entry. I would think to cover ourselves […]

    QUESTION: We file Post Summary Corrections when we determine upon receipt that there were overages or shortages of product even if the difference in duties and fees is less than $20. Occasionally, these discrepancies are simply the wrong style number being provided. The HTS classification and quantity are the same, but the value may differ […]


    QUESTION: For non-revenue corrections such relationship, Country or export or country of origin, in case of multiple entries, is PSC the only way to correct before liquidation date? Is there any other way of reporting non-revenue errors for multiple entries. Like quarterly reporting of errors to CBP and CBP making the changes. ************** Answers: The […]

  • 520d and PEA FOR SAME ENTRY

    QUESTION: Can you submit a 520d and a post entry amendment for an MA on the same entry?  I was told by my broker that when filing a PEA/520d I could only choose one or the other?  If that is the case does someone have a link to the publication or section of the regulations […]


    QUESTION: My company is trying to find specific guidelines to tell us when to file a Post Summary Correction (PSC).

Is there a new source material that is the equivalent of this but for PSCs? ========== […]
