China’s Finance Ministry has increased export rebates to help China’s steel industry tide over the economic burden of COVID-19 pandemic. China increased rebates for 1,084 products. Exports of stainless steel bars, wires, thin welded pipes, boiler tubes and carbon steel products are eligible for 13pc rebate.
Chinese producers can apply for a rebate or refund of the value-added tax (VAT) and consumption tax on products shipped to overseas markets. Chinese economy has been stressed as manufacturing and industrial activities could not resume to full potential after the Lunar New Year holidays in the last week of January.
Here is a list of stainless steel products which are eligible for 13pc tax rebate.
