Foreign Trade Zone Information
A Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) is a secure area under the supervision of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that is considered outside the customs territory of the United States. At an FTZ, special CBP procedures may be used for the storage, exhibition, assembly, manufacturing, and processing of foreign and domestic merchandise. FTZs are beneficial to companies because they allow for the deferral of duties and quotas on imported goods until the decision is made to enter the goods into the U.S. market.
There are benefits to a zone user
- Duty Exemption - There are no duties or quota charges on re-exports.
- Duty Referral - Customs duties and federal excise taxes are deferred on imports.
- Inverted Tariff - In situations where zone manufacturing results in a finished product that has a lower duty rate than the rates on foreign inputs (inverted tariff), the finished products may be entered at the duty rate that applies to its condition as it leaves the zone (subject to public interest considerations).
- Logistical Benefits - Companies using FTZ procedures may have access to streamlined customs procedures (e.g. "weekly entry" or "direct delivery").
- Other Benefits - Foreign goods and domestic goods held for export are exempt from state/local inventory taxes. FTZ status may also make a site eligible for state/local benefits which are unrelated to the FTZ Act.
Doña Ana County is the grantee for the FTZ and is prepared to execute agreements designating individual users as operators of the FTZ within their facility. For more information about FTZ Number 197 contact the Dona Ana County Community Development Department by phone at 575-647-7350 or visit Foreign Trade Zone | Doña Ana County, NM (donaanacounty.org).
