Merchandise Processing Fee Increase
Effective November 5, 2011 the Merchandise Processing Fee (MPF) charged on all imports (except those from countries with which we have Free Trade Agreements) has increased from 0.21% ad valorem to 0.3464% retroactive from October 1, 2011. However, the impact will be minimal for importers into Foreign Trade Zones who can aggregate entries and file weekly entry with the MPF capped at $485, offering large savings for large volume importers.
