Could you please let know where I can access the Import& Export Tariff Rates in China? Have searched many time in Google but failed.
The laws are not so transparent. Many thanks.

According to the State Council, the Tariff Policy Commission of the State Council has announced on December 23, 2004 that China will further cut import tariffs on more than 900 products beginning January 1 of 2005. This will lower the general level of import tariffs to 9.9 percent from the current level of 10.4 percent.
After the adjustment, the average import tariff for farm produce will drop from 15.6 percent to 15.3 percent; industrial goods from 9.5 percent to 9.0 percent, textiles and clothing 11.4 percent; chemical products 6.9 percent; vehicles 13.3 percent; machinery 8.0 percent and electronic products 9.1 percent.

For Bob

Foreign visitors after going immigration control must declare with the Customs on their accompanying baggage. The China Customs allow duty free for a reasonable amount of items for personal usage to be brought into the country. Now all you need is to arrange to have freight services company to deliver your van and personal goods to the Mainland. Please click here for details.

Most imports into China are subject to tariffs and import related value added tax (VAT), while certain goods are also subject to consumption tax. There are two column tariffs, viz. the most favoured nation rates and the general rates which are high. The preferential rates applied to those countries that have bilateral trade agreements with China, or broadly the members of WTO. The preferential tariff rates remain generally high compared to major WTO members, but are expected to reduce to around 10% as a result of China's commitment to WTO requirements.

We are looking to import polyimide film (Kapton) from China, process it and then export it back to china. I am having difficulty finding out our tariff rates. Can you offer any assistance/insight?

We need to know what kind of product you have turned to? Can you give the Harmonized System code number of the end product? Assuming no change of tariff heading (i.e. the product remains polyimide film) as a result of little process, the import duty is 6.5% plus 17% value added tax.

Most Favoured Nations in China tariff schedules refer to members of the World Trade Organization and other nations that have bilateral trade agreement with China. India is on the most favoured nations list.

Just want to know if I import wool from Australia to China for our wool blanket manufacture, then we will export the blanket to Hong Kong. What is the tax duty we will be imposed? Thank you very much in advance.

There in no import tax in Hong Kong for these products. If you import woollen yarn from Australia to China for manufacturing you will have to pay 5-6% (Most favoured nation rates) import tax and 17% value added tax.
