I have a question for you. A foreign company with offices in PRC purchases enterprise software in the UK, pays VAT in the UK, but use a small portion of the total software volume in PRC. Will this be considered importing software? Does the company have to pay VAT in PRC even though the transaction takes place in the UK, and UK VAT already been payed? regards Bjorn

The transaction is an export of software from the UK to China. No VAT or other tax would be involved in the UK but VAT 17% would be levied in the mainland although no customs duty will be charged.

Few more questions, I wish to know where to pay the VAT?
Secondly, how to get a permit from Chinese officials? From Customs or Ministry of Finance?
