Heads up … China is talking about tariffs (US) on Christmas light’s … I think we can safely assume LED strips will fall under that category … if you have plans, I’d act now …

Hope it doesn’t effect us evil Canadians.

I’ve had a quick look at the list of US tariffs an this seems to be the only reference to LEDs

8531.20.00 Indicator panels incorporating liquid crystal devices (LCD’s) or light emitting diodes
(LED’s)

But then I found this!
9405.30.00 Lighting sets of a kind used for Christmas trees

And then I found this :frowning:
9405.40.84 Electric lamps and lighting fixtures nesoi, not of base metal

“nesoi” means “not elsewhere specified or included”

The taxes will take effect from 24 September, starting at 10% and increasing to 25% from the start of next year unless the two countries agree a deal.
