TRITEC protects customers from possible penal duties
Anti-dumping proceedings against imports of Chinese solar products are currently ongoing in the European Union. In December, the EU Commission will decide on the possible introduction of penal duties. Then, however, penal duties could be retroactively levied.
Yet, TRITEC customers will have nothing to worry about: Until 6 June 2013, TRITEC as the importer will take over all retroactive customs and import costs and thus ensures the security of investment and financing for all PV projects.
Once again, the PV market is going through difficult times. We will be facing new challenges with regard to the current anti-dumping action by the European Union versus the import of Chinese solar components. A decision on the definitive introduction of penal duties will be rendered on 6 December 2013. They might be retroactively levied on all products imported to Europe and customs-cleared after 6 March 2013. The importer will be liable for this penal duty in each case. Chinese manufacturers deliver their goods now only up to bonded warehouses. Accordingly, it is left up to the wholesaler to decide whether he wants to import the goods and thus take over the risk of penal duties. At best by passing costs on to the customers.
How the various wholesalers will decide depends on the risk assessment of the corresponding importers. TRITEC decided first to import Chinese modules at its own risk until 6 June 2013 – for the benefit of our customers.
TRITEC will thus continue to offer its customers the best products at the best possible terms and conditions. Our experienced sales team will be pleased to advise and assist you with regard to any questions you might have.
