A harmonized code, or HS code, is an internationally recognized “part number” used by over 180 countries, to help quickly identify products so taxes can be calculated as they pass through customs.
“It gives me peace of mind knowing that the HS codes are calculated correctly and that someone is staying on top of the constant regulations changes.”Hampden Clothing (Shopify)
The HS code classification process has always been expensive, time-consuming, and inaccurate. Humans and other classification software only get HS and HTS codes right 7/10 times. Zonos is changing the game with our industry-leading classification tool that uses machine learning to generate instant, accurate results.
“The app makes it easy to search for harmonized codes for items and makes it easier to provide necessary customs paperwork. It’s a great tool for international ecommerce sellers and provides customs duties and tax information in advance to our ecommerce customers.”King Baby Studio (G2 Reviews)
Zonos Classify uses keywords for your products, such as item description, brand, and color to search for the most appropriate HS code. Image recognition and machine learning can also be used for even better results.
The Harmonized System (HS) is what’s used to classify cross-border goods for global trade. More than 200 countries use the Harmonized System as a basis for their Customs tariffs and the collection of international trade statistics.
The difference between HS and HTS codes is the number of digits within the code. A code with six digits is the universal standard as part of the HS (Harmonized System, Harmonized Tariff System) code whereas a code with 7-10 digits is determined by the country of import and is considered the HTS code.
No, HS codes are not required; however, landed cost calculations will be more precise and accurate if the products are properly classified to the sixth-digit HS or eighth-digit HTS tariff-level code.
Classify can be used for a variety of use cases, including:
