However, if after the destruction, other products are obtained and they are sold domestically, the enterprise has to declare and pay excise tax (if any), environmental protection tax (if any), value added tax to tax authority.

In addition, it should note that, applicable laws do not regulate import duty exemption given to the case of preliminary destruction of raw materials, supplies, finished products, semi-finished manufactured for export.
