According to reports, according to the "Notice on Reducing the Import Tariffs of Certain Commodities" promulgated by the Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council, the proposed tariff adjustment for the reduction of import tariffs on graphite pallets by Xiamen Customs was adopted, and the relevant tax number "6815.1000 for non-electrical graphite or The import tax rate of other carbon refined products has dropped from 15% to 10%. It is estimated that only relevant enterprises in Xiamen Customs District can save tax costs by more than 10 million yuan per year.
The graphite carrier disk mainly refers to the carrier plate used in the metal organic chemical vapor deposition equipment for producing epitaxial wafers in the semiconductor lighting LED industry, and is the main spare part for the production of key devices for LED epitaxial wafers (MOCVD). Due to the high technical threshold, the commodity is currently completely dependent on imports from countries such as Europe, America and Japan. The higher purchase price and import tax rate restrict the international competitiveness of Chinese optoelectronics enterprises to a certain extent.
In the taxation investigation, Xiamen Customs found that due to the rising cost of raw materials and labor and the intensification of international competition, LED enterprises are facing huge cost pressures. Especially in the cost structure of epitaxial wafers, graphite carrier disks account for 70% of all spare parts consumption of epitaxial wafers. More than %, so reducing the import tax rate of the graphite carrier, can effectively reduce the cost of LED epitaxial wafers and chips. In order to help “Made in China” and promote the development of the real economy, Xiamen Customs submitted a tax adjustment proposal for reducing the import tariff on graphite carrier plates for three consecutive years, which ultimately led to the tax reduction of the goods.
Xiamen Customs has indicated that the majority of enterprises and industry associations can make recommendations to the Customs on issues such as tariff codes, regulatory documents, tariff rates or export tax rebate rates. The Customs will conduct taxation investigations and submit them to higher authorities through field investigations.
