With the development of China's economy, people's living standards have improved. The Chinese people have higher material requirements than before.

Import declaration types

Normal import declaration: Import enterprises have the authority, qualifications and relevant import documents to import corresponding products. The import customs declaration agent helps organize and fill in the information to declare to the customs according to the process.

Pay the bill for import declaration: Importing companies or individuals do not have import authority and no information. This requires the import customs declaration agent to provide an enterprise with import rights and qualifications to declare imports on its behalf. This method is called purchase document import declaration, and it is also a commonly used formal customs clearance mode.

Tax-included import declaration: This method is actually the second variant of import declaration. Import companies will choose suitable import ports to import, but the time is unstable and the import cycle is long. It is not recommended to choose this method.


Import customs declaration process

Accept declaration---review documents---inspect goods--handle tax collection---clear customs and release.

The information required for general trade import agency customs declaration includes: original factory invoice, packing list, contract, waybill, certificate of origin and other related information.

Customs declaration information: customs declaration form, power of attorney for customs declaration, contract, invoice, packing list, etc.
