Our company needs to import a significant amount of equipment and raw materials for a new R&D project. Can Customs guide us on eligible tax relief policies?


Shanghai Customs introduces a proactive "pre-audit" service for critical R&D equipment and raw materials. By understanding the progress and import plans of enterprise research projects, a proactive assessment is conducted on the attributes of high-tech equipment and special materials. Through early involvement in the pre-audit for duty exemptions, companies are guided in the declaration process. With complete documentation, the audit timeline can be reduced from 10 to three working days.
