Import & Export Taxes

The import and export taxes mainly cover the customs duty, import VAT and consumption tax, as well as the export VAT refund provisions. Since China’s accession to the WTO, although the average tax rate of customs duty continue to reduce, the customs duty amount still significantly increases due to the growth of the import trade of goods and the strengthening of the collection management. Meanwhile, many taxpayers engaging in import trade are imposed on administrative penalty, or even be held criminally responsible because of the lack of expertise of the relevant policies.
