Information which might help
Tax revenues in China are collected and split between central and local government. The State Administration of Taxation (SAT) is the highest tax authority in China and it has SAT offices at the provincial and city levels responsible for collection of value added tax (VAT), consumption tax, business tax, corporate income tax and other specialized taxes. There are also local tax bureau offices reporting to the local governments and responsible for collecting business tax, individual income tax, and other specialized taxes. In addition, imports and exports are subject to customs duties, and notably, VAT and consumption tax which are collected by the General Administration of Customs and its subsidiaries around the country.
Every company has to register with both the SAT and the local tax bureau, and Customs as required. Given the complexity of the taxation structure, tax regulations can be interpreted in different ways by different offices and officials, even among the different districts of the same city. Different offices in different regions may have different interpretations towards tax regulations released by the central government, and their implementation efforts may vary. Check with local tax administrations or reputable service providers for the latest tax policy in the location where you are based.
