Webinar: Protect your bottom line — Understanding the latest China tariff exclusion process

October 31, 2019

In an escalation of the US-China trade war, President Trump imposed a punitive tariff of 15 percent on an initial list of $300 billion worth of products sourced from China on September 1, including a number of outdoor apparel, footwear and sporting goods (List 4a). Research commissioned by OIA found that America’s outdoor recreation businesses have paid $1.8 billion more in tariffs over the last eleven months (Sept 2018 to July 2019) compared to the previous period a year ago on affected outdoor products.

While negotiations continue on a final agreement between the U.S. and China, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) has launched a formal process for companies to file petitions through January 31, 2019, to exclude products on List 4a from additional tariffs and receive a refund on punitive tariffs paid to date.

Join us for an important webinar where we will discuss how your company can utilize this exclusion process to help protect the bottom line.
