What’s New about the 14 Innovative Measures Issued by Shanghai Customs to Shanghai Pilot Free Trade Zone?
[Qiu Haiying]: If the outbound goods are declared in a paperless way, paper dock receipts are not required and formalities for export can be completed for the goods with presence of the customs release information. In case of paper declaration, paper dock receipts are still required. 06/04/2014 14:14:44
[Net Friend: Customs Declarer]: We are an engineering company. When importing large equipment, we need to import components of equipment from different regions overseas for formal assembly, and then export the complete equipment with a tax exemption form. Under the current system of centralized declaration for multi-entry and exit, can we have different parts of the equipment exported from the zone separately and delivered, and later make the unified declaration? 06/04/2014 10:53:27
[Qiu Haiying]: Parts of the equipment can exit the zone separately, and within 30 days you declare to the Customs as per facts. However, one-time declaration shall be made according to the product names of goods transported out of the FTZ in batches and their corresponding tax numbers. 06/04/2014 14:14:51
[Net Friend: Shiliyangchang]: We are a trading enterprise registered in Waigaoqiao Bonded Area. Can we engage a third-party logistics company in the Pudong Airport Bonded Area or Yangshan Free Trade Port for business operation, but still make declaration and statistical work in our own name and HS code? 06/04/2014 10:53:52
[Qiu Haiying]: Customs declaration can be made under agency or by oneself. However, if the goods need to be kept at a third-party logistics company, declaration and statistical work will be carried out in the name of the third-party logistics company. 06/04/2014 14:15:02
[Net Friend: Shentong Express]: So far as I know, cross-border e-business is currently operated through IT Connect platform. Import and export of goods under bonded import model must go through the designated warehouse for QR code scanning. Can the platform and warehouse be operated by the third-party logistics enterprise? 06/04/2014 10:54:23
[Qiu Haiying]: So far, cross-border e-business is conducted through the Pilot Platform for E-business Service under Cross-border Trading. This platform cannot be operated by a third-party logistics enterprise. Any warehousing and storage enterprise registered in the FTZ can undertake the relevant business only after registering with Customs through the platform. 06/04/2014 14:15:34
[Net Friend: Ask Questions]: Can enterprises transport inbound or outbound goods within the FTZ with their own vehicles? For instance, some of our large articles, although they can be loaded into van trucks, their large size will require transportation with rented containers, which causes high costs and inconvenience in loading and unloading. Can the “transportation within the zone with one’s own vehicles” for goods transit be applicable to this part of business? 06/04/2014 10:54:47
[Shu Qinfang]: The model of transporting goods within the zone with one’s own vehicles is so far applicable to the transfer of goods between the four zones under the FTZ only. For first line entry/exit, enterprises in the FTZ should use the vehicles under customs supervision for transporting goods into or out of the FTZ. For excessively big and long articles that cannot be transported with the customs control vehicles, enterprises can apply to the competent customs house for transportation with their own vehicles. 06/04/2014 14:16:04
[Net Friend: Yangshan]: By cancelling accompanying documents for registration list at first line entry/exit, does it mean to cancel accompanying paper documents or not to provide e-files either? 06/04/2014 10:55:12
