Quick FAQs

About Deposit

Tradelink pays the Government and / or GACO charges on your behalf for trade declaration and / or certificate of origin applications you submitted before your company pays your bill, which normally is up to one month later. The deposit is intended to provide Tradelink with security against any default.

The deposit amount is agreed with your company at the time of registration, and the value is normally set slightly higher than your expected expenditure on trade declaration and / or certificate of origin transactions in any one billing period. This ensures that you will have sufficient account limit for your daily operation. The minimum recommended deposit is HK$2,400.

Tradelink system will automatically generate a bill to your company when your Account Limit is reached (i.e. 70% of your deposit amount), and two days later execute a Direct Debit Instruction on your bank. In other words, you will be billed before the end of the usual billing cycle. If this starts to happen frequently, you are advised to increase your deposit amount.

About Government Charge

At the time of lodging import and export declarations, importers and exporters are required to pay Declaration Charge and Clothing Industry Training Levy (if applicable) to the Government. The charge payable is generally based on the value of goods. For details, please visit Customs and Excise Department.

You may apply for a refund at an overstated value or double lodgment. The completed refund application form should be returned with the copies of supporting documents to Census and Statistics Department.

Refund of Declaration Charges

The government import and export trade declaration charges are calculated based on the value of goods declared. Thus, if the value of goods is amended, the declaration charges will be adjusted correspondingly. For recovery of declaration charge, please visit Customs and Excise Department.
