Section 301 Duties on Chinese Goods to Increase 5%

Section 301 Duties on Chinese Goods to Increase 5%

UPDATE: On September 11, 2019, the US President indicated that he would consider postponing the scheduled increase of Section 301 duties on Chinese goods until October 15. The effected tariffs are in Tranches 1, 2, and 3. The postponement has not been officially enacted, therefore the current date of increase, October 1, is in effect until otherwise announced. 

Late last Friday, August 23rd 2019,the United States Trade Representative (USTR) was instructed to raise the existing Section 301 duty on goods from China. For Tranches 1, 2, and 3, the rate will rise from 25% additional duty to 30% additional duty, effective October 1, 2019.

Additionally, the 10% additional duty planned for Tranche 4 will be raised to 15%. Duties on list 4A are effective September 1st, 2019, and list 4B duties are effective December 15th, 2019.
