China is on the verge of extending transition phase for cross-border retail

China is geared up towards delaying enforcing tougher rules on the country's rapidly growing cross-border retail market until the end of next year. Undoubtedly, it’s going to be a boost for global companies, which have been tapping the round-about route into the second economy of the world.

Cross border-retail sales, or in other words, goods either shipped to shoppers in the Asian country from overseas or delivered from bonded warehouses of free-trade zones within the country, are believed to reach 758 billion Yuan, as data from McKinsey & Co and iResearch states.

Planned fresh rules will drastically lift  taxes as well as regulations on goods sold via cross-border channels, although the Chinese government is going to extend a transition phase for implementation by one year, as China's ruling State Council told on Wednesday. The given move will provide retailers with more time to prepare and adapt.
