How Falsum can help

Companies, large & small, are missing out on significant value from their cross-border trade. For example, it’s estimated that a third of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) aren’t used with European companies paying billions of Euros in unnecessary tariffs. There are companies who negatively impact their cash flow by not making use of customs warehouses where you only pay tariffs on the goods that are bought rather than your entire stock. There are also the risky gambles taken by board management who aren’t aware of their customs compliance failings that may lead to huge financial penalties and even criminal charges.

The reason most companies don’t explore Customs & Global Trade is the depth and complexity of trade systems. Often, the regulations are opaque & difficult to implement.At Falsum, navigating trade and customs strategy as well as day-to-day operations is our core business – it doesn’t have to be yours. The first simple step is to talk to us and we can quickly give you an idea of the potential value. Then you’ll know what you’re dealing with and how we might be able to help.
