    China Proposes Tripling Tax-Free Allowance To Keep Luxury Spending At Home

    中国推动奢侈品消费回流 离岛免税额将提高至原来三倍

    China has set out plans to hike, very substantially, the annual tax-free spending allowance for its citizens who visit the off-shore duty free island of Hainan. The move would ensure that the Chinese—the most important buyers of luxury goods globally—will increasingly shop for coveted prestige brands within China’s own borders.

    近期,中国制定有关计划,将大幅提高国内居民赴离境免税岛——海南旅游的年度免税购物额度。此举将推动中国居民这一全球最重要的奢侈品消费群体未来更多地选择在本土购买国际知名品牌商品。

    The government, yesterday, proposed a new annual limit of RMB100,000 ($14,000) per person for tax-free shopping in Hainan, China’s southernmost province. The popular tourist destination attracts more than 75 million, primarily domestic, tourists every year.

    中国政府昨日提议,在海南省实施每人每年10万元人民币(约1.4万美元)的免税购物额度。这个位于中国最南端的省份作为受欢迎的旅游目的地,每年吸引超过7500万游客,大部分为国内游客。

    The new limit is more than three times the current RMB 30,000 ($4,200), and forms part of a much broader 60-point plan for the construction of a free trade port on the island.

    新的免税额度是目前免税额(人民币3万元,约4200美元)的三倍多,是将海南全岛建设成为自由贸易港的60条开放政策的其中一部分举措。

    The allowance rise and free port policy announcement followed the ‘Two Sessions’ annual plenaries of the National People’s Congress and the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference which ended last week.

    上星期“两会”结束后,官方公布了自贸港有关政策以及免税额增加的信息。

    Among other aspects of the free port plan relevant to duty-free retailing is the intention to grow tourist numbers by making Hainan an international aviation hub; liberalizing air rights including fifth and seventh freedoms; and the construction of a cruise tourism pilot zone.

    自由贸易港开放政策还包括一系列与免税零售相关的举措,如将海南打造成为国际航空枢纽并增加游客数量,开放第五、第七航权,以及建设邮轮旅游试验区等。

    While no dates have been set for the implementation of the higher tax-free allowance, the official publication of such an intention indicates how keen China’s government is to keep luxury spending—which drives global duty-free shopping—on home soil.

    尽管提高免税额的实施日期尚未确定,但官方公布的意向表明,中国政府希望在本土推动居民的奢侈品消费,这将带动全球免税购物行业继续增长。
