Why should the new version of the customs declaration form add the mandatory field of "trade country (region)"?

International freight forwarding elites interpret it for you
Since a number of customs declaration enterprise platforms broke the news that the General Administration of Customs will carry out a major revision of the original customs declaration form in the near future, the circle of friends is about to be brushed ah, the fire is not wanted.
In fact, in Li's opinion, the import and export customs declaration should have been reformed a long time ago, and I don't know how many years the old version of the customs declaration has been used!
With the rapid development of the economy and society, the situation is changing every day, and the customs declaration form must be brave in innovation and keep pace with the times.
Among them, the more significant and eye-catching reform is the new declaration content. For example, the indicators of "special relationship confirmation" and "price impact confirmation" related to customs price assessment, and the indicators of "confirmation of payment of royalties" related to customs intellectual property protection.
However, I think the new "Trade Country (Region)" declaration is also worth paying attention to

The "Trade Country (Region)" indicator refers to the country (region) of the foreign customer (i.e. buyer buyer) who signed a trade contract (i.e. Seller) with a domestic enterprise (i.e. seller), and the country (region) of the foreign party that has no (substantial) commercial transaction refers to the country (region) of the foreign party that has the ownership of the goods.

There are two specific meanings:
First, if a commercial transaction occurs, fill in the country (region) of the buyer Buyer on the trade contract:
Second, if there is no commercial transaction without a trade contract), such as advertising materials or gifted goods, fill in the country (region) of the foreign party that has the ownership of the goods.
The new "Trade Country (Region)" indicator added to the new customs declaration is different from the "Trade Country (Origin/Arrival)" indicator in the original customs declaration, and the original "Trade Country (i.e. Origin/Arrival)" is actually the "Origin Country (Region)/Arrival Country (Region)" indicator.
The country of departure does not necessarily equal the seller's country on the trade contract:
The country of arrival does not necessarily equal the buyer's country on the trade contract
Because in practice, the "country (region)" to which the buyer belongs on the trade contract and the "country (region)" of the goods are often inconsistent. For example, if a mainland seller signs a trade contract with a trader in Hong Kong, but a trader in Hong Kong requests that the goods be sent to the United Arab Emirates, the "trading country (region)" is Hong Kong, and the "arrival country (region)" is the United Arab Emirates.
The reason why the new version of the customs declaration form adds this mandatory field
First, in order to meet the needs of the development of business practices that often do not coincide with the actual arrival country (region);
Second, for the specific country (region) in which the entity conducts trade with China by foreign buyers (including Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan).
Third, the newly added "trade country (region)" indicator is relatively simple, only need to be judged according to the trade contract, if there is no commercial transaction, then fill in the foreign party with the ownership of the goods, get rid of the influence of logistics.
