I have a question regarding inclusion of an indemnity clause in the contract/agreement with a supplier when claiming preference on imports. For example, if it is found subsequently that the goods on which we have claimed a preferential rate of duty did not meet the qualifying rules under the terms of the preference agreement (eg because of inaccurate information provided by the supplier) and back payment of duty is demanded, could the supplier be held liable to reimburse us, the buyer? I’d be interested to know if this is common practice to indemnify against this risk.
