China Import tariff

I want to export pet food from Europe to China. What is the import duty that applies? What is the VAT to be applied in China? To what extent Hong Kong can be used to lower the import duty? Does the pet food have to be totally produced in Hong Kong?

The China import duties for pet food classified under HS 2309 are: cat or dog food 15% plus VAT 13%; mixed feeds or mixed feed ingredients 5% and 6.5%, plus VAT 17% and 13% for imports from most favoured nations. If the goods are manufactured in Hong Kong and meeting with Hong Kong origin criteria, zero rate of duty may apply.

For Neesha: Please ascertain the status of your manufacturing concern in the mainland with the licensor and the trade and commerce bureau whether the production is exclusively for exports and whether you have the right to sell domestically. There is no import tax for you to sell your products locally except VAT.

Hello there, I would appreciate some help with the import/export tariffs when shipping between China mainland and the EU. The products in question are raw copper cables (signal and power) and plastic/metal connectors and covers (e.g. D-sub). I understand there’s a "refund" if the parts are imported to China, assembled, and then exported again.? The rumour is also that there are different tariffs for piece parts and already assembled goods...? Does anybody know? Or preferably, can someone provide me with info on where to find the info?

Dear moderator, can you please tell the duty rates for pork imports from Russia? Is there a difference for different cuts (frozen boneless neck, shoulder, ham)? Or is there a link that you could advise? How are the duty rates calculated - from some basic prices (customs database) or from contract prices? And VAT?

for Victor 6 April: Please refer to China Tariff 2007 and input HS headings 0202 and 0203 to obtain specific rates for frozen and chilled/fresh meat of swine in China. The customs duty will include rates of import tariff and VAT on the customs value of the goods which would include the cost, insurance, freight and other expenses associated with the delivery of the imported goods.
