Hunan Pilots Cross-border E-commerce B2B Export
On September 1, the Changsha Huanghua Airport Customs completed customs declaration for 164 daily necessities including phone shells and storage bags based on a new way of cross-border e-commerce Business-to-Business (B2B) direct export. This was the first of its kind in Hunan and marked the start of the pilot work of Hunan’s cross-border e-commerce B2B export business.
A batch of commodities including clothes, shoes, daily necessities, and electronic accessories, which were exported from the first 4 pilot enterprises, were also declared and supervised through a B2B model at the Changsha Huanghua Airport Customs and Xingsha Customs. The goods, weighing 45 tons and worth more than 2.5 million yuan, is bound for the USA, Germany, and Kazakhstan.
According to the Changsha Customs, starting from Sept 1, twelve directly subordinated institutions of the China's General Administration of Customs, including the Changsha Customs, have been added to a pilot list for conducting cross-border e-commerce B2B export supervision. Cross-border e-commerce B2B exporters in Hunan will be given priority for streamlined declaration procedures, simpler and more efficient clearance, and return of goods. The two new ways of supervision are respectively coded "9710"— cross-border e-commerce Business-to-Business (B2B) direct export; and "9810"—cross-border e-commerce export overseas warehouses. "9710" is applicable to goods directly exported by cross-border e-commerce B2B, while "9810" is applicable to goods in overseas warehouses of cross-border e-commerce exports.
Liu Zhiming, member of the CPC Changsha Customs Committee, said that the Changsha Customs will fully support the pilot work and improve working mechanism for efficient customs clearance. Hunan will promote the cross-border e-commerce B2B export pilot work across the province after October, to benefit more companies.
