What is the difference between Delegation Authorization and Processing Trade Authorization

Entrusted authorization is developed for Golden Gate II processing trade system, and is used for the authority management system of inter-enterprise agent filing and customs declaration. Processing trade authorization is an authority management system used for H2010 account books and handbooks and for agency filing and customs declaration.

Entrusted authorization is based on an enterprise as a unit, while trade authorization is based on a single account book or manual. The authority of both cannot be used universally.

At present, there is no limit on the number of items in the bonded write off checklist, but each declaration form has only 50 items at most. Can one bonded checklist generate more than one declaration form?

According to the current setup of Golden Gate II system, a bonded checklist can only correspond to one customs declaration form. When entering the system, the system will merge each list entered. If there is too much data entered into the list and more than one declaration form is generated, the system will prompt you if it is exceeded. When importing, enterprises are required to control the number of items in the list.
