How to grasp the benefits of fastener export enterprises?
On June 19, 2007, the Ministry of Finance, the State Administration of Taxation, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Commerce and the General Administration of Customs jointly issued the Notice of the Ministry of Finance and the State Administration of Taxation on Reducing the Export Tax Rebate Rate of Some Commodities, stipulated since 2007. From July 1st, adjust the export tax rebate policy for some commodities. The export tax rebate rate for fasteners, springs and other metal products has been reduced from 13% to 5%.
In recent years, the export tax rebate rate requirement for the fastener industry has been raised to 13%, but it is still 5%, and this fastener product can be included in the list of export tax rebate rate increase, which is good news.
In addition, the reporter noted that on March 28 this year, the State Council executive meeting decided to determine the deepening of VAT reform measures. Since May 1, 2018, the value-added tax of manufacturing and other industries has been reduced from 17% to 16%; the value-added tax of transportation, basic telecommunications and other industries has been reduced from 11% to 10%. This means that after September 15th, part of the domestic manufacturing value-added tax can achieve a 100% tax rebate.
RMB depreciation + VAT adjustment + export tax rebate rate increase. For fastener export enterprises, even if the United States levies relevant tariffs, the impact is greatly reduced, and it is also conducive to seize other markets except the United States.
