To inform companies on the most recent customs updates, the Belgian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (BCECC) is pleased to invite you to our yearly Online China – Belgium Customs Event on October 20, 2021 at 10.00 CET (16.00 CST). As VAT regulations for cross-border e-commerce have been revised on 1 July 2021 and some other customs regulations have been updated as well, it is important for your business to stay tuned with the latest changes.
