Guangdong is an important production base for the textile and clothing industry in my country, accounting for about one-third of the country’s annual clothing output. Since the “Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement” (RCEP) officially came into effect at the beginning of this year, my country’s textile and apparel products exported to RCEP member countries have enjoyed tariff preferences. Among them, textile and footwear products are important tax reduction products from Japan to China under RCEP. However, some textile and apparel companies have not mastered the regional cumulative rules of origin during the export process and have not been able to enjoy policy dividends such as tariff preferences.
In response to the demands and dilemmas of enterprises in the jurisdiction, Guangzhou Customs has arranged origin business experts to provide “one-on-one” policy guidance to enterprises that do not enjoy tariff preferences based on the export characteristics of textile and garment enterprises in the jurisdiction, focusing on rules of origin, tariff reduction The “approved exporter” system helps companies establish a comparison list of RCEP country-specific commodity tax reductions, helping companies enjoy policy dividends.
