The import duties in China for polypropylene is 9.7% for imports from most favoured nations including Singapore and India, plus 17% value added tax. The import duty for certain type of polypropylene imported from Singapore may be zero under the Free Trade Agreement between China and the ASEAN countries. Please provide the Harmonized System Code no.

For Name supplied (11 Dec): In general shipment of goods which have not actually left the customs port (or district/country) of China cannot be considered as exports. Hence VAT and other export related tax refunds cannot be accepted. However you may wish to consider using the bonded logistics parks in Shanghai or Shenzhen.

Import duty for imitation jewellery (including crystal) is charged at 35% in China for imports from most favoured nations, in addition to 17% value added tax. If the product is originated from Hong Kong and fulfilling the Hong Kong origin requirements the import duty would be levied at zero rate under the CEPA.

Import duties of raw hides and skins of bovine or equine animals are levied at between 5% and 8% in China in 2005 for imports from most favoured nations, plus 17% value added tax. These rates may be expected to come down a little in 2006. You may wish to peruse further details of China import tariffs on hides and skins by putting relevant harmonized system codes in China customs website.

Dear Moderator,

can you also help me out with information about export tariffs ? In management literature i encountered that there are no export custom tariffs to pay, except for goods like lead, zinc, copper, scrap metal or steel.

We want to import flexible insulation materials (HS-Code: 560313 and 560314) and coated glass yarn sleevings (HS: 701990)from China to Germany. Are there any export custom taxes to pay for those materials ?

Thanks for your support in advance. By the way, this service is great.
