Hong Kong’s Duty System
Hong Kong is a tax-free port, with the exception of four types of dutiable commodities: liquor, tobacco, hydrocarbon oil, and methyl alcohol. Dutiable goods must be stored in a bonded warehouse until duty is paid. Bonded warehouses must be licensed by the Customs and Excise Department of Hong Kong.
For those seeking bonded warehousing solutions, we are licensed to handle the import, export, and bonded storage of liquor products over 30% alcohol content. We are supported by bonded cargo operation services that are fully compliant with regulations. We have specialist experience with wine cargo and can assist with applying for wine permits for alcohol by volume over 30%.
