CBP Announces April 18 Deadline for Filing Retroactive GSP Claims

On December 12 and 13, 2011, CBP posted on its website notices announcing that it has begun processing refunds for entries filed via the Automated Broker Interface (ABI) with the Special Program Indicator (SPI) A, for duties deposited on GSP-eligible goods during the period from January 1, 2011, through November 4, 2011. 

According to the notices, claims for retroactive GSP benefits, on non-ABI entries or entries filed without the SPI A, must be filed by April 18, 2012, and should be filed at the port where the goods were entered. 

Please note the CBP issued a correction to the December 12, 2011 notice stating that the deadline for filing retroactive GSP claims was May 3, 2012.
