China Tariff Discussion

China: Tariffs
Per its World Trade Organization (WTO) accession agreement, China reduced its Most Favored Nation (MFN) tariff on fresh table grapes to 13% on January 1, 2004. This is the rate applied on grapes imported from the U.S.

On April 2, 2018, China implemented an additional 15% tariff on U.S. table grape imports. This action served as a retaliation against the U.S. implementing additional tariffs on certain foreign imports, including steel and aluminum imports from China.

A 13% Value-Added Tax (VAT) is applied on all agricultural imports based on duty paid value.
