On 9/17/18 the USTR announced that Section 301 duties will be enforced beginning 9/24/18. The initial tariff amount will be 10% through the end of 2018. Beginning Jan 1, 2019 the tariff amount will increase to 25%. Romaine Electric will begin to add a surcharge based on the tariff rate on items that incur the tariff.
Currently our EZ-Connect web portal does not support displaying tariffs. We are working with our software provider to make these surcharges visible so you are able to quote your customers accurately. If you have any questions please call your local customer service representative to confirm that your part will or will not have the surcharge, and the amount. Again we will not impose an overall price increase, but only apply a surcharge to items that are affected and only as they are affected. We hope this is a temporary situation.
