Tax and duties
The main question in importing to UAE is about tax and duties. It’s a pleasure to give you some guides about customs fees, taxes, and duties.
What is a customs duty?
Customs duties or import taxes are paid on goods shipped across international borders. This tariff is paid on import by the record importer, who can be the owner or buyer of the goods or a party with financial interests in the shipment, such as the seller. Type of imported goods and factor of the country of origin in duty assessment.
Many countries and Products are exempt from duties due to trade agreements, but all Products must be declared. Breakdown to pay can result in criminal penalties and seizure of the goods.
How are duty rates determined?
All available goods can be found in the Harmonized Tariff List (HTS), a global naming system accepted by all WTO member countries. Each HTS code has a corresponding task rate that may be zero. Typically, the percentage rate of import value is the rate per piece or the rate per pound. US HTS codes are ten digits, and the first six digits are global or coordinate numbers.
US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the largest federal law enforcement agency in the United States Department of Homeland Security, clear goods and enforces customs regulations. The CBP evaluates the duties based on the country of origin and the transaction value of the goods, both of which are declared by the record importer in the entry declaration.
Some countries have low or zero import duties due to reciprocal trade agreements, such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

The trade relationship between China and the UAE was established from the first of November 1984 and continuously develop up to today.
In recent years, bilateral economic and trade transactions between China and the UAE have seen slow progress. In 2002, trade between China and UAE was the US $ 3,895, with China exporting $ 3.45 million and imports $ 445 million. China’s major exports to UAE products are textiles, clothing, light industrial products, products made of five metals (gold, silver, copper, iron, and castles), handicraft equipment and machinery, etc. China mainly imports UAE aluminum ingots, chemical fertilizers, oil and platinum, and so on. In recent years, labor service cooperation between the two countries has evolved from a service contract to a sub-project contract and a general contract.

However, depending on your circumstances, there are advantages and disadvantages to any method that can help you decide which is best for you.
