Over­seas trav­el­ers to get tax re­fund

China Daily (Canada) - - SHANGHAI -

The 25 stores in Shang­hai that are qual­i­fied to process tax re­funds have sub­mit­ted ap­pli­ca­tions for 335 over­seas trav­el­ers since the tax re­fund pol­icy came into ef­fect in July, the Eco­nomic Daily re­ported. The ap­pli­ca­tions in­clude 1,543 items with a to­tal cost of nearly 1.9 mil­lion yuan and 208,700 yuan worth of tax will be re­funded to the trav­el­ers from 48 coun­tries and re­gions, said an of­fi­cial from the Shang­hai Mu­nic­i­pal Bureau of Lo­cal Tax­a­tion. Ac­cord­ing to rel­e­vant Chi­nese laws, over­seas trav­el­ers do not have to pay tax if they buy items such as clothes, ac­ces­sories, jew­el­ries, cam­eras, kitchen­ware, hand­i­craft, skin­care and Chi­nese medicines.
