Duty Drawback Software | Import Export Consulting | Processing Filing | Full Service
The recent activity regarding Section 301 tariffs have caused major changes for the import and export industry. List 1 and List 2 have been in effect since July, but the final list has officially been released and has been effective since September 24th of this year. List 3 includes a variety of imports from China which include products like chemicals, textiles, metal, and electronics. Tariffs for List 3 were set at an ad valorem rate of 10 percent but will increase to 25 percent at the beginning of the new year. List 3 targets about $200 billion worth of Chinese imports and unlike List 1 and List 2, there is no indication that there will be any kind of exclusion process for products in the final list.
Though List 3 was released less than a month ago, the administration threatened China with a potential List 4. This threat by the U.S. was publicly stated saying that if China retaliates against farmers or any other industries, they will begin to launch a process that aims to increase tariffs on an additional $267 billion worth of goods.
