US Targets to Add Extra Taxes For Companies like Apple that Produces Overseas

Updates for extra taxes for Companies that Produces Overseas

The United States’ President plans to impose new taxes on US firms which manufacture their goods abroad, such as Apple. Taxation is an incentive, as for Donald Trump, they have to transfer their production home if the companies wouldn’t want to pay extra.

This is yet another attempt to shift production from China, according to US Trump officials. When asked if he’s going to give tax break to some firms, he cleared that it is what companies would do for their country.

According to the Department of Commerce, US businesses have lost $46 billion since Donald Trump had begun enforcing Chinese import tariffs. The trade war between the US and China is likely to have caused Chinese $370 billion worth of import.

During the rally for re-election, Trump referred to supply chain as stupid, as reported by Reuters and their weakness have been shown by covid 19 outbreak as the main products are being cut off. The President said that supply chains should not exist and that all manufacturing should relocate to the United States.

When introduced, the question is whether this measure would raise the price of iPhones currently produced by Foxconn in two main plants in China.

It is extremely unlikely that even a tax break will equally amount the rise in cost of labor. The problem then emerges whether the United States government wants to go forward with its strategy as far as we can expect.

A Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra is the newest smartphone to be tested by the team in DxOMark and has earned a 121 ranking. This positions it in the 10th position behind the Galaxy S20 Ultra in a global Smartphone Photography List.

While it can be used with a compact camera configuration, there are several noticeable drawbacks, including erratic zooming, low-light noise and autofocus hiccups.

On the Note20 Ultra, the hardware is very familiar with a 108 MP-resolution main 1/1.33 “sensor which releases 12MP, much like the Galaxy S20 Ultra. It is combined with a 12MP telephoto device with a full range of 120 mm and 12MPs.

With its good replication, precision exposed and fast autofocusation, the Dxome Mark team noted excellent large and ultra-wide performance.

Even high-end portrait photography, the performance from the S20 Ultra almost matched. With a noticeable lack of clarity at the 4x-zoom point, the effect of the telephoto lens did not excit. The night shots were strong and held decently in colour, and detail.

Video capture is best in a resolution of 4 K and 30 FPS, although the performances of Galaxy Note 20 marginally behind other flagships such as the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

The same issues is occurring in California, with a federal judge issuing a preliminary injunction blocking the ban of WeChat – another platform, owned by a Chinese conglomerate Tencent. According to TikTok, the restrictions “are not motivated by a genuine national security concern” but are rather being used as a bargaining chip in the upcoming general elections.

Last Saturday several sort of delay to the ban came up after “positive developments” – Walmart and Oracle reportedly will join hands in purchasing a minor stake in TikTok Global – a new subsidiary by ByteDance that is supposedly going to make TikTok a platform for influencers and brands to promote products while doing their silly dances.
