Postponement of Increase on Sec. 301 Duties from 10% to 25%


Hoping the customs duty increase on Chinese goods was going away? Well, while it hasn't gone away, the bump up to 25% from 10% that was originally scheduled to go in to effect on January 1, 2018 has been put on hold.


On December 14, 2018, the Office of the US Trade Representative (USTR) confirmed a 90-day postponement of the tariff rate increase for the third tranche of goods subject to the Section 301 additional duties, which your imports are subject to.


While no portal has been opened to request an exclusion, the new effective date for the increase to 25% is March 2, 2019.
