· A Tariff database that contains all historical and current tariff data. This database contains all the data of the WCO harmonized system to subheading level, augmented with the country specific commodity codes, anti-dumping, countervailing, prohibitions and restrictions, permit and license requirements. This information is gathered from various government organizations and integrated into a single database
· A Tariff lookup and Tariff calculator function that can be deployed in two distinct environments, namely as web services to traders as well as embedded in the TATIScms solution as the tariff calculator and “legal compliance verifier”
· A management system to manage the administration of Tariff data according to legal and other government requirements, the promulgation of the tariff data in a country’s legal framework and the distribution of tariff data to other government agencies and traders
The key driver for the TATIScms Tariff Management module is to ensure legal compliance to answer questions like – Did the trader provide all the necessary permits for the import, export or transit declaration? Is the VAT calculation correct (is the VAT at all declared)? What about all the other environmental levies? Were they considered correctly? Which other government agency should be involved during post clearance inspections?
