In 2011, Hong Kong imported £5.1 billion worth of British goods and services – a 20% year-on-year rise compared to 2010. In addition, due to its historic relationship to the UK as a former territory of the British Empire, many aspects of the financial and legal systems in Hong Kong are similar to that of the UK, making business between the two territories relatively simple.

Customs Information for Hong Kong
As a Special Administrative Region of China, Hong Kong is a very business friendly destination since import duties are not typically applied to any goods except alcohol and tobacco products. The vast majority of goods can therefore be imported duty free. It’s nevertheless advisable to check the relevant customs regulations before shipping, but most imports to Hong Kong are cleared with very few problems. It is always worth checking the regulations before booking a courier to Hong Kong.
All shipments to Hong Kong must be accompanied by four copies of a customs invoice – a document detailing the contents and value of the parcel you are importing. We automatically generate a customs invoice for you from the details you enter during your booking and email copies to the account holder. When your parcel is collected in the UK, it must be accompanied by four copies of this document, so it’s important to ensure you forward it on to your collection point if you are making your booking from Hong Kong.
