What is the benefit from appointing the Importer of Record ?

The Importer of Record is the person or entity who actually has ownership of the imported goods at the time of import. This may lead to some confusions with suppliers, distributors, and end-users. At the time of import of already-purchased goods, the typical thinking would imply the owner of the product (the end-user) has the obligation to pay any associated duties. However, appointing an Importer of Record will clear this confusion. The entity of the importer of record becomes the temporary owner of the goods until the goods have been accepted by the distribution center.
