LEVA-EU is receiving information about importers throughout Europe being confronted with a 189% deposit to be paid for their electric bicycles from China to be released.
We are also receive growing evidence of customs and forwarders stating that bicycle components for electric bicycles (i.e. frames, forks, derailleur, handlebars, etc.) are subject to 48.5% anti-circumvention duties.
This is an urgent appeal for those importers:
– who have written evidence of requests for deposits
– who have statements that bicycle components for electric bicycles are subject to 48.5% anti-circumvention duty
– who have effectively paid 48.5% anticircumvention duties on bike parts used for electric bikes
to get in touch with LEVA-EU as soon as possible.
