Drawback Bonds: Limit your risk by ensuring reimbursement of overpayments (duty) to customs if found to be excessive. When merchandise is imported into the U.S. and later exported, an importer may be entitled to a refund of duty–referred to as drawback. With accelerated drawback, the refund is granted before liquidation of the entry. A Drawback Bond guarantees repayment of duty to Customs if found to be excessive after liquidation occurs.
