As you’re aware, on July 6 the United States enacted tariffs of 25% on a broad spectrum of items for which China is the country of origin. These items include many electronic components. Sourceability will by default be listing all costs incurred due to tariffs as itemized surcharges on invoices containing affected items. For customers who prefer to avoid line item charges, we will embed the costs into unit prices upon request. This policy is effective immediately and applies to all undelivered orders, including those already placed. We are working hard to mitigate the effects of the tariffs on our customers. We are devoted to transparency on this issue and encourage you to contact your Sourceability account manager with any questions or concerns. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that any particular parts will originate from specific countries. As a reminder, under the current tariff schedule items with a country origin of outside of China (including Taiwan and Hong Kong) will not incur these new tariffs.
Sourceability will be making every effort to ensure our quotes include tariff information that is as accurate and current as possible. Outside of the guidelines outlined above, we will as always use all tools at our disposal to create customized solutions for your unique supply chain situation. For example, customers may request shipments be facilitated by our Singapore or Hong Kong distribution centers, allowing you to be the importer of record into the United States. In this situation, tariffs would be paid by your company and would not be invoiced by Sourceability.
For more information about the tariffs, please visit USITC’s website. In the event that further tariffs are levied or the current tariffs expand to include additional countries, the above policies will remain the same.

The foregoing shall not be construed as limiting in any manner any of the rights or remedies of Seller arising under the Singapore Sale of Goods Act or any other applicable law as in effect on the date hereof, which are available to Seller upon any default by Buyer of any of the terms or conditions of these Conditions.
Once Buyer sends in its Order through the Sourcing Platform and Seller’s Sourcing Platform issues Buyer an Order Confirmation in respect of that Order, there shall be a Contract formed between Buyer and Seller in respect of the Goods described in the Order.
