Seahog, a China customs broker with over 25 years of experience in handling import customs clearance for all kinds of commodities, including of course auto parts.

The applied HS codes include 8708999990(with 6% import duty , 13% value added tax ),  8708801000(with 6% import duty , 13% value added tax), 8544302090(with 10% import duty , 13% value added tax, and 15% extra import duty for goods of USA origin ), and 8409919990(5% import duty , 13% value added tax) . Based on this case, Seahog would like to share more about getting auto parts imported into China as below.

Used auto parts are banned from importing into China. So this first step of the importation of auto parts is to make sure they are new. The second step is to let the China customs broker  check and confirm HS codes of each auto part based on the names and check the required documents for customs clearance. The importation of auto parts involves several documents for different parts, like CCC certificate ( for tyres,  brake hoses, locking machines, hinges, automative lighting and other vision devices, auto seats, safety belts, SRS system ), automatic import license (for engines and chassis ), and safety performance test report for (automotive aluminium alloy hubs),
