Surviving the Trade Wars: The China 301 and the 232 Exclusion Processes, Classification Reviews, Country of Origin Analysis, or Drawback Can Provide You with Options
November 20, 2018
Has your supply chain been impacted by the China Section 301 duties, or the aluminum and steel Section 232 duties? Are you concerned about the next escalation, which will likely capture all remaining Chinese origin products, or may expand to include imported automobiles and parts from various countries? Are your competitors somehow avoiding these additional tariffs?
Barnes/Richardson can provide you with practical and effective assistance in understanding your options. Please contact us if you have questions about:
- The China 301 Product-Based Exclusion Process
- The Aluminum and Steel 232 Product-Based Exclusion Process
Have you re-evaluated your classifications to make sure they are correct? Sections 232 and 301 additional duties are pegged to specific tariff numbers. A legally sustainable position in favor of another tariff classification might remove your product from these additional duties.
- Country of Origin and Substantial Transformation
Entered valuations should be reviewed to ensure that all legal reductions have been taken.
- Duty Drawback
- Preserving Your Rights to Possible Refunds
Working together, we may be able to help alleviate the impact of these duties to your company. For further information on these topics please contact your Barnes/Richardson lawyer, or one of the contacts below:
