What is the difference between a bonded area and a bonded warehouse?

China’s bonded areas do not need to pay customs duties, but you need to pay customs duties when you leave the bonded area and enter the non-bonded area.

It can be seen that the processing business in the bonded area has more obvious advantages and characteristics than the non-bonded area: processing in the bonded area does not require import and export licenses, production and operation licenses; all imported materials are completely exempt from tax. For imported materials and parts for processing trade, except for commodities subject to export quotas implemented by the state, the bonded area does not implement the bank deposit ledger system.

A bonded warehouse is only a function of storing goods.

Once a buyer is found, they can leave the warehouse. Imported goods belonging to general trade shall not be stored in bonded warehouses. , and processing in bonded warehouses is not allowed, but the packaging or gamma code of customs-supervised goods can be changed.
