Our Services > Customs Duty Drawback

If you import goods into the United States, pay duty, and then destroy or export them, you may be entitled to a duty refund from U.S. Customs, even if you were not the actual importer or exporter. Millions of dollars are lost each year because companies are unaware of "Duty Drawback" or fear the complexities of collection. Rogers & Brown has one of the few completely automated "Duty Drawback" departments in the United States. We handle duty drawbacks for large and small companies, from complex textile manufacturing drawback to simple returns of unused goods. What is drawback? It is a refund of a Customs duty, Internal Revenue tax, or government fee. Duty Drawback was established to encourage American commerce or manufacturing of goods. It permits American companies to compete in foreign markets without having to include duty paid on imported merchandise in their costs. There are three types of drawback:

Manufacturing Drawback

Goods imported into the United States, duty paid, and used in the production of another product, which in turn is destroyed or exported out of the United States.

Unused Drawback

Goods imported into the United States, duty paid, and destroyed or exported unused or in the same condition as imported.

Rejected Merchandise Drawback

Goods exported or destroyed because of non-conformation with sample/specifications, or were shipped without consent of the consignee. Along with these common types of drawback, there are other situations in which a refund can be obtained. All duty drawbacks must adhere to time constraints and complex documentation. If you think you may qualify, ask to speak to one of our drawback specialists. For more information, contact Beth Morris at or 843-577-3630 x235.
