Mexico Customs Compliance - Maquiladoras, Pedimentos, IMMEX ...
As part of the MIC solution for Mexico customs trade compliance we help our clients and prospects to drive additional hard savings and to drive down their entry costs on both sides of the Mexico border. Our Mexico specific functionality enables the automation of bonded, duty deferral, reconciliation programs and the IMMEX program while automating the creation of import and export declarations (pedimentos) leveraging one country’s export clearance into another country’s import clearance. These automations allow the customs process to be simplified and costs per clearance mitigated across the entire supply chain.
MIC’s Mexico customs solution set is web-based that can handle multiple facilities from a single hosted or licensed system. This allows for a standardized, organized and defined workflow process for your company helping you take full advantage of existing regulations and to get ahead of future changes.
MIC-CUST® Mexico offers solutions for both IMMEX and Automotive Fiscal Deposit programs. The module enables the automated inventory management required by Mexican legislation (ANNEX 24 for IMMEX). The logic can also be configured to support compliance with Value Added Tax (VAT) certification (ANNEX 31).
The system allows direct electronic transfer of data to third parties (financial institutions, brokers, carriers, etc.). This prevents the re-keying of data, minimizing mistakes, reducing costs, and increasing compliance.
MIC-CUST® Mexico provides increased efficiency, improved transparency, and greater compliance in one single system.
