There has recently been a dramatic change in the Anti-Dumping Duty imposed on Companies supplying Pallet Trucks by the EU. A bill was signed in Brussels on the 24th of April 2013 changing the tax from 7.6% to 70.8%.
The Anti-Dumping Duty (ADD) is an import duty charged in addition to normal customs duty and is applied across the whole European Community. It is designed to allow the EC to take action against goods that are sold at less than their normal value.
This will have an effect on Pallet Truck customers as the costs will be significantly higher. We would advise all our customers that you should only purchase trucks from an established supplier, as the customer would be held liable for any unpaid tax if the supplier evades payment.
At Hiremech, we can assure all of our customers that our Pallet Trucks are purchased from a trusted source, designed with excellent quality keeping the ease and safety of the user in mind and are priced very competitively.
