How do tariffs affect exporting to the United States?


The US imposes a tariff on some foreign products to allow them to enter the country. This tax varies depending on the item and place of origin.

This tariff makes the good more expensive, so as an exporter you must take it into account when calculating prices. Something that must also be assumed by the distributor in the United States, who buys the product to market it.

Taxes are lower or do not exist for goods that the country does not produce and needs to import. Sometimes governments use them to boost local consumption or to sanction countries that subsidize their industries and seek to sell at lower prices. However, in this country the tariffs are not particularly high and do not represent a major impediment to exporting to the United States.
