Trade War: How to Protect Your Business?

Learn how to avoid or limit the effects of tariffs and specific scenarios to protect a business.

Anyone that has been following the recent news may feel overwhelmed with the diversity and amount of tariffs on products from China, Mexico or on products made of steel and aluminum. That is especially true for small and mid-size businesses that depend on importation and usually cannot afford those drastic changes. This topic will help you understand the actual scenario on tariffs and to identify available ways to avoid or limit its effect, such as applying for exemptions or taking advantage of foreign-trade zones or even move its business abroad. To understand the different options available is the first step to protect a business from the effect of unexpected tariffs.
