Hong Kong is an excellent channel to tap into the China market. About 40% of China's foreign trade goes through Hong Kong.
Hong Kong is a free port. There is no customs tariff on goods imported into Hong Kong. The HKSAR Government collects an excise duty on only four types of goods irrespective of whether they are imported or locally manufactured, namely, tobacco, hydrocarbon oil, alcoholic beverages and methyl alcohol.
In general, any person who imports or exports any goods is required to lodge with the Commissioner of Customs & Excise an import/export declaration within 14 days after the importation or exportation of the goods.
