Australian Wine Benefits Lower Import Duty to China under FTA

April 22, 2016

Australia, following Chile and New Zealand, was the third major wine producing country signed the bi-lateral Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with China last June and the Agreement was effective 1 December, 2015.


Australian wine would enjoy a cut of 2.8% on custom duty each year and will become zero rate import duty in 5 years (2019).  The custom duty to Australian wine will be 8.4% (2016), 5.6% (2017), 2.8% (2018) in the next few years.


China has entered FTAs with Chile and New Zealand in November 2005 and April 2008 respectively.  Both countries now enjoy 0% import custom duty which definitely increase their competitiveness in the fierce wine market in China.


At zero custom duty rate, it is a saving of 37.76% in terms of the total aggregate tax rate (custom duty + consumption tax + value-added tax) from 48.2% to 30%, i.e. consumption tax and value-added tax only.
