Objection Related to Customs

What is a Customs Objection?

Sometimes companies importing goods are subject to customs invoices by Customs and Excise Officials in the form of SPTNP (Letter Determination of Tariffs and/or Customs Value).

The SPTNP is generally issued when the company is hit by a red line during the customs clearance process. However, the SPTNP can also be issued within 30 (thirty) days after the imported goods are received at the company warehouse. Or more precisely 30 (thirty) days after the date of registration of customs import declaration (PIB).

The reason for issuance of SPTNP is because based on document research conducted by Customs and Excise Officials, the company is considered to have made a mistake in classifying goods (determining the HS Code) and/or the value of goods in the PIB document, resulting in a short-payment of Import Duty.

What can we do?

The Customs Law and its implementing regulations provide an opportunity for companies to file objections to the Director General of Customs and Excise through the Head of the Customs Office at the port of unloading or the place where the company settles customs obligations for its imported goods.

How can PCC help us?

PCC provides assistance services for companies to file objections against the SPTNP to the Director General of Customs and Excise.

PCC will organize the collection of supporting evidence in the form of data, information, documents, preparation of arguments and rebuttals as well as make a letter of objection.

Our team of consultants can act either as a companion to the company or as a legal representative representing the company in the submission process, discussing objections at the Customs and Excise Office until it gets a decision letter of approval or rejection.
