China Impose Tariffs On Some Imports Of Rare Earths From The United States

- Sep 06, 2019-

On August 15, 2019, the us government announced that it would impose a 10% tariff on imports of about us $300 billion from China, starting from September 1 and December 15, 2019, in two batches.The measures taken by the us have led to continuous escalation of trade frictions between China and the us, which has greatly harmed the interests of China, the us and other countries, and seriously threatened the multilateral trading system and the principle of free trade.


In accordance with the customs law of the People's Republic of China, foreign trade law of the People's Republic of China, regulations of the People's Republic of China on import and export tariffs, and other basic principles of international law, the tariff commission of the state council has decided to impose additional tariffs on 5,078 imported goods originating in the United States, amounting to about us $75 billion.The relevant matters are as follows:

1. from September 1, 2019 at 12:01 points, to 270 items of goods listed in annex 1 in the first part, imposing a 10% tariff on 646 items of goods listed in annex 1 in the second part, imposing a 10% tariff on 64 items of goods listed in annex 1 part 3, imposing a 5% tariff on 737 items of goods listed in annex 1 part iv imposing a 5% tariff, specific commodity scope see appendix 1.


2. since December 15, 2019 at 12:01 points, to 749 items of goods listed in annex 2 in the first part, imposing a 10% tariff on 163 items of goods listed in annex 2 in the second part, imposing a 10% tariff on 634 items of goods listed in annex 2 the third part, imposing a 5% tariff on 1815 items of goods listed in annex 2 part 4 imposing a 5% tariff, the specific scope of goods in annex 2.


3. For the imported goods originated from the United States listed in the annex, corresponding duties will be levied on the basis of the current applicable tariff rate. The existing policies of bonded goods, tax reduction or exemption will remain unchanged.


4. Collection of relevant import taxes:

Additional duty = customs value x additional duty rate

Tariff = the amount of duty payable at the current applicable rate + the amount of duty added

Import VAT and consumption tax shall be levied according to relevant laws and regulations.
