9 What Is an FTZ?  An area inside the United States that is designated as being outside Customs Territory.  Where items are brought into the Zone duty free.  Where Customs duty is determined when the merchandise leaves the Zone.

10 What is a Zone Site?  An Industrial Park  An Industrial Development Inside a Port or Airport  A Company’s Facility

12 Duty Deferral  Duty is not paid when an item enters the Zone  An item enters the Zone in January  Duty is paid when the item leaves the Zone  The item leaves the Zone in April  Four months of duty deferral

13 Duty Elimination  Testing and inspection is conducted in the Zone duty free  All rejected and destroyed items are duty free  Exports are duty free  All items exported from the Zone are duty free

14 Duty Reduction  For manufacturing Zones  The Zone allows a company to choose the lowest duty rate associated with its components and finished product(s)  A company imports 3 components  A has a duty rate of 10%  B has a duty rate of 9%  C has a duty rate of 8%

15 Duty Reduction  The company’s finished product has a 5% duty rate  The company will pay for the value of the components at the finished product rate  A from 10% to 5%  B from 9% to 5%  C from 8% to 5%  This reduction means a savings of 5% to 3%
