Customs Valuation and Multinational Transfer Pricing: Can They Co-exist? 

By Matthew M. Nolan (Arent Fox LLP)

Import compliance specialists have long worried about issues surrounding customs valuation for imported merchandise, especially when it comes to related party transactions within multinational enterprises. The concept of what constitutes an “arm’s length” transaction, and how to prove it, has been the source of much debate between Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) and with trade professionals over the years. This article considers why transfer pricing has emerged as a significant customs valuation issue.


EU Restrictive Measures – The Use of Import Restrictions

By Renato Antonini and Eva Monard ( Jones Day Brussels)

The European Union (the “EU”) may impose restrictive measures (or so-called sanctions) on particular countries, entities or individuals; the nature of such measures will vary depending on the objectives and the likely effectiveness of such measures. Restrictive measures can take a large variety of forms, including for instance, arms embargoes, restrictions on admission (visa and/or travel bans), export restrictions, flight bans, freezing of funds and economic resources, or bans on the provision of financial services.

Sometimes, restrictive measures also take the form of import restrictions. Since this type of restrictive measure is not commonly used by the EU, it is often neglected by companies that may be concerned.
