Customs advisory and dispute resolution

China customs is governed by a series of laws and regulations. These regulations dictate the classifications, rates and procedures for assessing duties and taxes on imported and exported goods. From tariffs on consumer products to taxes on specific products, China customs manages import and export of goods and services and at the same time ensures the proper collection of duties and taxes.

China customs levies different types of duties and taxes, for example, customs duties, value-added tax and consumption tax. The tax rates generally depend on the types of commodities, origin country and shipping mode. Import duties are categorized into six types: general duty rates, most favored nation duty rates, conventional duty rates, preferential duty rates, tariff rate quota duty rates and temporary duty rates.
