ACE Drawback is very different than the ACS Drawback.

ACS required you to transmit a summary of the transaction and then accompany it with multiple spreadsheets and letters to provide the backup and justification.

ACS Core drawback (not TFTEA) claims to require no more data than under ACS however now all that data must be electronic at a low level. Most of our users have been submitting supporting spreadsheets for ACS and with a few modifications you should be able upload the spreadsheet instead of keying the data.

Of course you can still key the data if you do not have a spreadsheet available. It may just take a while.

Our current software release does not support Manufacturing drawback or Nafta drawback. If you need this please call as we need a partner to work with.

You should make sure you are familiar with the CBP publications on this subject which are available on https://www.cbp.gov/trade/ace/catair under supporting documents.

Ace drawback is available from option 7 on the Import Operations Menu.
