Import tariff

On 14 July 2010, Ecuador's Trade and Investment Board (Consejo de Comercio Exterior e Inversiones COMEXI) adopted Resolution No. 575 modifying the import tariff on televisions. The old import tariff of 20 per cent is replaced by a mixed and incremental tariff depending on the size of televisions:
 
Televisions of 14 to 20 inches:USD39.97 + 5%
Televisions of 21 to 32 inches:USD73.11 + 5%
Televisions of 33 to 41 inches:USD 140.32 +5%
Televisions of 42 and more inches: USD 158.14 + 5 %
 
A priori, it is unclear whether the new scheme corresponds to an increase or decrease of the duty.
 
This measure entered into force on 30 July 2010.
