The Beijing municipal government has announced the launch of a new big data-driven services platform for cross-border e-commerce trials.
The Beijing Cross-border E-commerce Comprehensive Trial Zone Online Integrated Services Platform (北京跨境电商综试区线上综合服务平台) officially commenced full operation in early September according to state media.
The Platform was established by the Beijing Customs Data Sub-centre (北京海关数据分中心) for the purpose of achieving “one- time registration, one-time online viewing, one-time inspection and one-time handling” for e-commerce vendors by “breaking through the information barriers between customs, tax, forex, commerce and finance.”
The Platform also makes use of big data analytical technology and provides comprehensive support to cross-border e-commerce B2B operations, export product returns, cross-border e-commerce enterprise income tax inspections and non-invoice inspections.
According to Beijing authorities the Platform has processed a total of 3.8 million export-related data items since the start of trial operation in July.
