The Send In-Bond Transfer of Liability Page is a page in BorderConnect U.S. In-Bond Manager used to electronically transmit an In-Bond Transfer of Liability Message to CBP. This page can be accessed by hovering over 'U.S. In-Bonds' and selecting 'Transfer Liability' or by clicking the 'Send Transfer of Liability Request' option in the 'Update In-Bond' dropdown button from the In-Bond Report Details Page. Sending an U.S. In-Bond Transfer of Liability to CBP is common if a new bonded carrier would like to take control of an in-bond that was originally intended to be taken by another bonded carrier at the time of filing the in-bond. It's important to note that only the carrier that will take control of the in-bond can file the Transfer of Liability and not the carrier that will be giving away control, otherwise it may result in CBP penalties. The in-bond must also be in an 'Enroute' status for a Transfer of Liability Request to be sent and cannot be in an 'On File', 'Arrived', 'Exported', or 'Concluded' status.
