Experts Say Manufacturers Should Prepare for Tariffs

Tue Feb 7, 2017

Experts are urging U.S. manufacturers to start anticipating potential changes in import and export tariffs and also begin thinking about potential retaliatory taxes that are expected to follow any addition of U.S. tariffs.

Brian Murphy, national managing partner of State and Local Tax services for Grant Thornton, says some of the potential tax reform could benefit businesses.

But if they happen as proposed, tariffs very likely will affect all manufacturers, even if they source within the United States, says Ward Melhuish, advisory principal and national advisory lead, Consumer and Industrial Products industry practice, at Grant Thornton.
