Do I Get a VAT Rebate in China?

Our distributor imports fragrances into China and pays 17% VAT. How much VAT does the distributor get back once the goods are sold to retailers and how long does it takes? Thank you

I am afraid that there is no VAT rebate applicable if the goods are sold in China.  But the VAT rebate does apply to exports out of China.

Here is an article I wrote about VAT in China for your reference: What is VAT and why should I worry about it?
