Around and around we go and where the tariffs land, nobody knows!
What we do know is that the U.S. and China continue to go “tit-for-tat” in the ongoing trade wars. See the attached Compliance Alert for more information about where we are today and what we know is coming. Also included are suggested ways that you can protect your company.
I am also attaching an Excel spreadsheet of all products affected by the additional tariffs. It will show what USTR List the product is included on, the current duty rate and effective date, and any future (known) increased duties and their effective date. I have included columns to show exceptions of products within a HTS tariff classification. If an entire HTS tariff line is excluded, I have shown that tariff line in its entirety. If a specific product has been granted an exclusion, but its tariff classification is not excluded in its entirety, I have shown the Chapter 99 Note to refer to find the product. HTS Chapter 99 can be found at https://hts.usitc.gov/current. If you are unfamiliar with reading the HTS and need assistance in looking up an exception, contact our consulting group for assistance.
We will continue to monitor the trade wars and other issues that might affect your industry and will keep you updated.
Please do not hesitate to contact me or your TLR customer representative if you have any questions or concerns.
