Our TariffTel team is expanding

Blog 3

We’ve recently welcomed two new additions to our TariffTel team who have come onboard to support our customers including M&S, Primark, Boohoo and ASDA in achieving reliability and accuracy in their customs classification. Harrison Bay joins us in the role of Customs Classification Specialist and Elizabeth Pascoe joins us as a Customs Administrator.  

They join a talented team of skilled customs classification specialists who are driving forward our TariffTel solution ensuring goods reach their destination without the hassle of border delays and non-compliance fines which inaccurate tariff codes often can bring, as retailers know at their cost. 

Both are passionate about product classification and HS codes, researching and understanding the interpretive challenges each product can present. One of our specialists, Daniel Mcmenemy, discusses the interpretive challenges of classifying Summer outdoor products in a recent blog 

Harrison Bay Joins from Harbour Shipping where he held the previous position of a Customs Entry Clerk, responsible for the smooth and timely running of customs procedures. His role involved comparing international shipment data with source documents and checking for accuracy in data for customs clearance into the UK from HMRC. As well as completing various customs entry declarations and supporting documents e.g. licenses. At CORE, he brings these data skills and more to ensure the TariffTel database is fully up to date, liaising with customers to solve even the most complex of classification questions.
