Introduction

Bank-Customs Link is a support service under China e-Port. Customs System, e-Port Data Center and Hua Xia Bank System are inter-connected. This is an accurate, fast and convenient service for corporate customers to pay customs duties online instead of the conventional way.
Corporate customers only need to log in to China e-Port website in the office, issue payment instructions as required. Hua Xia Bank will directly deduct the amount from corporate account after receiving the instruction. Goods can be cleared through the customs after successful payment.

Types of Duties can be paid online
Import duty, export duty, anti-dumping duty, import VAT, penalty income, deferred tax interest, deferred consumer tax interest, deferred VAT interest, import consumer tax, articles by post, monitoring fee, fee for delayed declaration, security deposit and late fee.

Flow


① Company declares to the Customs. Customs System sends "Duties Advice" to e-Port Data Center after approval on the declaration.
② Company makes payment online by issuing "Withhold Instruction" if there is no dispute on the Duties Advice. Hua Xia System processes the "withhold" once the instruction is received.
③ Hua Xia sends "Withhold Receipt" to e-Port Data Center after processing. Customs changes the status to "Payment Successful" once receiving the "Withhold Receipt". Company starts to clear through customs with necessary documentation.
④ Customs sends "Actual Deduction Instruction" to e-Port Data Center after releasing the goods to the company. Hua Xia Bank receives the instruction via e-Port Data Center.
⑤ Hua Xia Bank collects the paper-based voucher for "Duties Paid" from Customs with necessary documentations.
⑥ Hua Xia Bank verifies the documentation and posts into Treasury according to the "Actual Deduction Instruction". The paper-based voucher will be returned to company once the posting to Treasury is successful.

Comparison between payment through online and at the counter 


1. To pay online, declaration and duties payment can be done at e-Port Data Center website. Every step is transparent to user.
2. Online payment is signed using digital certificate instead of by hand. Fewer trips mean faster customs clearance, more efficient and less cost. Further, duties can be paid online if declared in other cities. This helps simplify the management of paying duties in other cities.
3. During customs clearance, paper-based voucher printed by Customs on-site will not be returned to company first. Instead, company can only collect the voucher after Hua Xia Bank verification and posting to Treasury. In this way, no paper involved during duties payment, no need for officer-in-charge to bring along the voucher to clear customs and handover to financial personnel.
4. System is open, low cost, and simple. Services are available around the clock every day of the year. Payment can be made anytime, anywhere.
5. Multi-level security measures taken to ensure the reliability of the system. Further, more support services are offered to let corporate clients fully enjoy fast and convenient e-Banking services.
