A new EU crockery tax has been levied on Chinese ceramics from the end of November resulting in a tax increase on mugs.
The new tax applies up to 58% to the price of Chinese crockery which will have a knock-on effect on the prices for customers. The tax increase will take effect when current stocks from suppliers run out and more is needed to be imported as “It is estimated that the duties will add £230 million to importers’ costs which will be passed on to customers”.
If your thinking of ordering mugs then now and early next year is an ideal time so you can take advantage of the current prices.
At BH1 Promotions we supply a wide range of branded mugs, luckily not all of them will be affected by the price increase. The new “Crockery Tax” will only apply to our bone China mugs that are imported. However, we still have popular corporate mugs in stock that are not affected by the tax increase that can be used to promote your business or brand:
