PROGRAM THREE: Use of Statistical Sampling and Application of Offsetting in Prior Disclosures

A two-part, 90-minute live webcast on the use of Statistical Sampling presented by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and industry representatives

Whether you are preparing for a FA or applying for CBP's ISA program, you may be faced with potential compliance issues involving hundreds or even thousands of import transactions. Did you know that you can use statistical sampling to manage large import transaction universes, calculate lost duties, taxes, and fees or lost revenue - and that this is frequently done by knowledgeable importers for the purposes of submitting a prior disclosure? Did you know that in certain circumstances you could offset overpayments/over-declarations against underpayments/under-declarations in a prior disclosure? Learn how new regulations have influenced the preparation of prior disclosures as CBP experts demystify how to effectively use statistical sampling and apply offsetting in large import transaction universe scenarios.

In this live webcast, you will learn:

  • The basics of statistical sampling and when it may be appropriate to consider its use
  • What criteria needs to be met in order to use statistical sampling and apply offsetting in a disclosure
  • What information needs to be included in the disclosure to describe the sampling plan and methodology
  • Elements of the sampling plan that should be described in the disclosure
  • Common issues and pitfalls to avoid
