The guidance—Announcement 65—was jointly issued by the State Administration of Taxation, the Ministry of Finance, and the General Administration for Customs. The guidance provides a comprehensive regulatory framework for the bonded customs zones of Kunshan, Suzhou Industrial Park, Chongqing Xiyong, Shenzhen Yantian, and Zhengzhou Xinzheng as well as the export-processing zones of Shanghai Songjiang, and Henan Zhengzhou.  

Under the VAT pilot program, selected enterprises would be subject to the same tax and customs regulations (i.e., pertaining to customs duty, VAT and consumption tax) as would an “out-of-the-zone” domestic enterprise.
