FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division has announced tariff tax exclusions on its aluminum offset printing plates, currently making it the only major printing plate manufacturer in the U.S. to earn exclusion.
While the U.S. Commerce Department’s Section 232 tariffs on imported aluminum remain in effect, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division has received exclusions on the majority of the 147 Exclusion Requests it filed several months ago.
“Although the current Federal Government shutdown prevents Fujifilm from receiving further updates as to the status of our remaining Exclusion Requests and the process, timing and amount of refunds Fujifilm can expect on tariffs paid since 1 June 2018, Fujifilm remains committed to crediting plate customer accounts for every dollar of tariff tax that the Commerce Department returns to Fujifilm,” said Todd Zimmerman, Division President, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division.
“Our resolve to challenge these tariffs has led to this outcome for our valued customers,” added Zimmerman. “I sincerely appreciate our customers’ patience and understanding as we worked through this difficult situation. We will provide updates on this process as soon as we receive further information from our contacts in the Commerce Department.”
The exclusions are valid until approximately December 2019 and can be revoked by the Commerce Department at any time.
