This year is the first year of the implementation of the "E-commerce Law." The focus of public opinion is on where the purchasing industry should go after the "e-commerce law" is promulgated. It is believed that many overseas purchasing staff may not be aware of the content and specific requirements of the e-commerce law. So, what are the provisions of the "E-commerce Law" on purchasing? In response to related issues, I made the following detailed introduction for you.
I. Provisions on purchasing in the E-commerce Law
The " E-commerce Law of the People's Republic of China" is abbreviated as the " E-commerce Law", and the full text is divided into seven chapters and a total of 89 articles, of which there are two provisions, which have a greater impact on purchasing agents. They are:
Article 10 E-commerce operators shall handle the registration of market entities in accordance with the law. However, individuals selling self-produced agricultural and sideline products and household handicraft products, individuals using their own skills to engage in convenient labor service activities and sporadic small transaction activities that do not require a license according to law, and registrations that do not require registration in accordance with laws and administrative regulations are excluded.
Legal analysis of purchasing behavior
The promulgation of the "E-commerce Law" has the greatest impact on purchasing, as shown in the above regulations, the state has clearly required e-commerce operators to register market entities in accordance with the law and perform their tax obligations in accordance with the law. This means that whether it is selling goods in the WeChat circle of friends, or bringing goods on the live broadcast platform, even the merchants included on Taobao Tmall will be identified as e-commerce operators, and these personal overseas purchasing agents who were originally in the gray zone Incorporation into the supervision of laws and regulations also requires registration and tax payment, which undoubtedly affects the purchasing industry.
Today, in order to avoid tax risks, some purchasers have opted to suspend business; while others are opportunistic and continue to publish information in the circle of friends in other languages, without interrupting the purchase business. This kind of behavior obviously violates the relevant provisions of the e-commerce law. Therefore, specific measures should be actively taken to crack down on and combat illegal acts such as illegal purchasing. Therefore, the state should strengthen law enforcement, and some speculative purchasers should be severely punished in accordance with the law, and illegal purchasers should not be left to chance.
The purchasing industry has actually penetrated into the daily life of each of us, but has been in an "out-of-law place" for a long time. The promulgation of the "E-commerce Law" can supervise and manage it well, thereby better regulating the chaos in the sea. I believe that the above description has provided a comprehensive understanding of the provisions on purchasing in the E-Commerce Law.
