Customs & international trade


As global competition increases, companies continue to seek greater efficiencies from their supply chain.  At the same time, however, the Vietnamese authorities have taken steps to expand their trade legislation and have stepped up enforcement of customs tax compliance across a number of areas. Non-compliance can lead to increased tax costs, a slowing or cessation of the supply chain and in some cases reputational damage so developing efficient and cost effective compliance programs and business processes is vital.

Customs audit disputes are becoming increasingly aggressive and PwC’s Customs and International Trade team is at the forefront of assisting companies in disputes on customs tariff code, valuation and many other such matters. Whether you require customs audit assistance, risk assessment advice, insight on particular technical matters or advice on the implications of group or business model restructuring, our team can help guide you through the complexities of the legal framework and the operations of the customs authorities.  

We can work with you to

  • Develop a strategy for audit defence and risk remediation including assistance and support in preparing a technical defence and liaison with customs authorities e.g. customs audits, voluntary disclosures, rulings etc;
  • Develop compliance programs and processes;
  • Risk assessment and ‘health-check’ for customs compliance, identification of potential savings opportunities and assistance in obtaining specific rulings; and
  • Provide insight and advice on the implications of reorganisations and changes in the company’s business model.
