Integrated Customs Clearance Reform Rolled Out on National Basis
As of 1 July 2017, the General Administration of Customs has extended its revenue collection reform to cover all goods listed in all chapters and sections of the Regulations of the People’s Republic of China on Import and Export Duties and all ports across the country, regardless of means of transportation. When handling import formalities, all enterprises and institutions are now obliged to complete the relevant import procedures using the customs pre-declaration system for the self-assessment of duty payment. Furthermore, the duty computation service tool shall be used to calculate the duties payable prior to the submission of the inputted pre-declaration data for customs declaration purposes. Once goods have been released, the Customs service may then conduct random checks with regard to the price, classification, origin and other relaxant tax matters relating to the import enterprises and institutions concerned.
All other matters related to customs clearances will continue to be handled in accordance with the provisions of GAC Announcement No. 62 .
