Taiwan Fights Back

Tuesday, July 30, 2013 7:23:25 PM America/New_York

Of course, in all aspects of business, it is important to look closely at your competition. This is also true in the world economy, where countries must attract and keep business in order to thrive. Recently, the Economist Intelligence Unit reported that the Taiwanese government is on a mission to attract manufacturing away from China, and back to Taiwan. Understanding that companies are making their decisions based on the best possible bottom line, Taiwan has lowered corporate taxes and interest rates, and removed fees for land-leases for two years. Because the laws protecting intellectual property are better in Taiwan than in China, and because of the more stable legal environment, it is likely that these incentives will make a great difference! Provided with both a better business climate and an opportunity to operate less expensively, it is no wonder that big manufacturing companies want to keep working – and investing – in Taiwan.

UL Cost Increases Impact Manufacturers and Consumers

Wednesday, December 21, 2011 1:59:53 PM America/New_York

The cost of doing business in the United States hinges on a variety of factors and will vary from industry to industry and location to location. Such costs could include space cost, labor, transportation, cost of supplies, and regulatory requirements. We have been thinking a lot about the last factor, regulatory requirements, particularly as it relates to cost increases by the Underwriters Laboratories (UL).

The UL is an independent product safety certification organization. One of the primary things that the UL does is to develop standards and test procedures for products, materials, components, assemblies, tools and equipment, chiefly dealing with product safety. UL is one of several companies approved for such testing by the U.S. federal agency Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Consumer and worker safety is paramount and we understand that. However, ongoing, and increasing regulatory requirements, and the costs to meet these requirements, continue to put the pinch on businesses. Increases in UL fees are just another example of how it is more and more difficult to do business in the US.
