drbubb Posted November 23, 2011 Report Share Posted November 23, 2011 US EXPORTS / Cars, Scrap, etc : Southeast US to China Some Notes ============================================= (this thread is to collect some rough data on the captioned exports) What is being exported to China ?? CHINA - Secondhand Car Imports ===== Import of used motor cars in China LWS Consulting 13 Dec 2005 11:14 There have been many enquiries in this SME Forum on importing of used motor cars in China. These enquiries have centered on importing regulations, procedures, and other hard facts on the customs values, customs duties, and other associated taxes, etc. In actual fact the imports of used motor cars are subject to used machinery and electrical goods on the prohibited list in China. It seems that this administrative rule is not that clear, as there is no enforceable law really forbidding the import of used motor car in the mainland. It is also noticeable that there are used motor cars particularly those in the classic, rare and prestigious models imported from abroad to run on roads at China's main cities, or even in the second hand cars auction market. . . . Moderator 31 Dec 2005 10:13 The import duty and other taxes associated with imports of motor vehicles into China could amount to 50-60% of the customs value of the goods. If you peruse the postings elsewhere in this Forum, import of used machines and electrical machinery (including used motor vehicles) is on the list of prohibited goods. Approval for such imports is granted only in special circumstances and on an individual case basis. /source: http://forum.hktdc.com/topic/629/1/en/Import-of-used-motor-cars-in-China.htm SUCH A HIGH TAX - may kill the idea, and it may be illegal: CCC US Office 24 Jan 2006 11:10 Car import for personal use is highly prohibited in China. The easy way is that you are a returning Chinese student studying oversea or a diplomat, or you own a company in China with certain capital registered. Otherwise, it will be very difficult and very expensive to import the car (either new or used) into China for your personal use. If you could pay that expensive cost and do want to import the car, you may contact us at Moderator 31 Jan 2006 15:54 Import of used motor vehicles is prohibited in the mainland.
