6 Customs clearance in Vietnam:

When importing to Vietnam, you’ll pay these taxes:

  1 Import tax; you’ll pay this for nearly all goods you’re importing from China to Vietnam

 2 VAT

3 Special consumption tax on any goods

 4 For some goods, you’ll pay special preferential tax

 

Remember, the type and amount of tax will depend on the type of product you’re importing from China

Just like for luxury goods or consumer products, the taxes will be very high.

Vietnam exempts parts machinery from import duty taxes.

Generally, import duty on your goods will be between 0% and 25%.

The importing VAT varies between 0% and 10%.

For luxurious goods, you will pay the special consumption tax.

Take, for example; you’ll pay 7% for vehicles with high engine capacity.

Also, for cigarettes, you will pay 75%.

The bottom line will be :

This tax starts at 7% for vehicles and can even be as high as 100%.

The most important is China and Vietnam are members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations(ASEAN).

Therefore, if you doing the customs clearance in Vietnam with a FORM E,  you can also benefit from special preferential tax tariffs.
