Our Global Trade and Customs Group is on a roll!

SGV’s Global Trade and Customs Group, headed by Tax partner Mark Tamayo (MPT), completed a series of seminars as part of their mission to disseminate information on the changes in customs rules and procedures to SGV clients and the public.

The series started at SGV Cebu with a two-session Customs Updates Seminar on 21 March. MPT and senior directors Stephanie Vicente-Nava and Victor De Dios answered questions on the new rules on the accreditation of importers.

Tax partner Lucil Vicerra and senior director Arlyn Sarmiento-Sy then joined MPT, Stephanie and Victor in conducting a whole-day workshop on 25 March at the Washington SyCip Development Center. Entitled Managing Customs Audit – A Workshop on Customs Laws and Updates, the workshop had 100 participants in attendance.

SGV Davao was the venue for the final leg of the series. On 28 March, MPT, Stephanie and Victor held another Customs Updates Seminar, which included updates on post-entry audit of importers.
