The submitted sample, Style 87047 is a ladies belt with a detachable purse. The belt and purse are made of leather. The purse snaps off the belt and can be used as a separate item. The belt is approximately 2” wide with a two metal buckle closure.

 The applicable subheading for belt will be 4203.30.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for "Articles of apparel and clothing accessories, of leather or composition leather: Belts and bandoliers with or without buckles." The general rate of duty will be 2.7% ad valorem.

   The applicable subheading for the purse will be 4202.31.6000, HTSUS, which provides for “Trunks, suitcases, vanity cases, including those without a handle: Articles of a kind normally carried in the pocket or in the handbag: with outer surface of leather, of composition leather or of patent leather: Other.” The rate of duty will be 8% ad valorem.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.
