Dear Lighting Manufacturer/Importer,

In our last instalment, we outlined the importance of global Free Trade Agreements when purchasing LED Components from several regions. By knowing the customs duty tax rates in your country, you will be able to significantly reduce your total cost of ownership to stay competitive in your local marketplace.

By country and for each LED component, the following tables have outlined the customs duty tax rate reduction by using the Form E.

Refer to your country's table and start asking your supplier to give you the form to save ownership cost.
