Deloitte Customs Seminar

Two important developments in management of Customs operations, the impact of National Clearance Reform and Customs reorganisation on your Customs matters

2017 has proved to be an eventful year for China Customs. China Customs launched a series of reforms in 2017 via the introduction of a series of new regulations. The Customs Risk Management Centre and Import Taxes Collection Centre have been officially enforced from July 1st, indicating the significant change of the existing clearance supervision system. In addition, the General Administration of Customs (“GAC”) has rolled out the pilot processing trade supervision model of single-unit-treatment-for-enterprise. The pilot model is aimed to facilitate document set-up, simplify cancellation cycle and method, optimize the declaration method of goods delivery list and encourage enterprises to strengthen self-regulation and self-inspection. What do these collective changes mean for MNEs? Come and listen to our award winning team on how to improve clearance and reduce logistic costs.

At the same time, GAC has strengthened the guidance on self-disclosure by enterprises and launched a nationwide “self-inspection and disclosure” program targeted at non-trade payment. Many companies have already received a request for self- disclosure or formal audit and there will be more requests to come. In handling such audit or investigation, most enterprises are facing a lot pressure and under a tight schedule. Finding a strategic way to deal with self-inspection and respond to Customs audits will be important in closing the request with no payment.

We would like to invite you to join the forthcoming seminar in Shanghai. Deloitte’s team of national Customs advisors, who had worked in Customs House for more than 15 years from Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, Suzhou, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Chongqing, and from the key divisions such as Customs Valuation Center, Tariff Division, Audit Division, Customs Clearance Division, will provide in-depth insights on the following hot issues using case studies and share the local practices. In addition, we will arrange the Customs advisors for one-to-one talk with you during the second session. Looking forward to your coming!
