On August 21, Gongbei Customs approved a land port-based exit duty-free shop to sell China-made commodities over its export refund counter.
Allegedly, this export refund counter, as the first one set up at a land port in Guangdong Province, enables outbound passengers to buy duty-refunded commodities made in China. At present, the counter offers 17 varieties including Huawei wireless headset, Huawei wristwatch, Xiao Guan tea and tea sets and, in future, it will sell Dji drone, Dong’e donkey-hide gelatin, edible bird’s nest and other branded products.
In order to reduce business pressure, the Customs exercises the control mode of “giving approval first, receiving declaration later” over the export refunded commodities. Relevant enterprises can go through one-off collective declaration formalities each month.
As all the commodities are directly purchased from original manufacturers, their quality are absolutely reliable and, with low purchase price and duty refund, their sales prices are approximately 10%-20% lower than domestic market prices.
