Beijing has opened 832 duty-free shops covering all key commercial areas across the city. Twelve of them have adopted on-site tax refund services, allowing tourists to receive rebate in cash at the stores, according to the Beijing Municipal Tax Service.

As Beijing continues to upgrade departure tax refund policies and improve its services, the number of duty-free shops has increased from 74 in 2015 to 832 in 2022.

According to the tax authority, all stores with on-site tax refunds are sophisticated comprehensive department stores with more brands and complete financial mechanisms, which can better meet the diverse needs of overseas tourists.

As part of its efforts to cultivate more duty-free shops, the municipal tax authority has opened a fast track for enterprises that meet the conditions of departure tax refund shops and are willing to expand their duty-free businesses. 

Since the beginning of this year, the municipal tax authority has completed registrations for 115 departure tax refund stores.

Going forward, the tax authority will encourage more time-honored brands and traditional stores to provide departure tax refund services, delivering smoother shopping experiences to overseas travelers, the city's tax authority said.
