The Chinese tax system is based on a series of national laws and interim regulations. In China, the taxation principles, procedures, types and rates of taxes are standardized for the People’s Republic of China as a whole. Besides that, China is involved in over 100 double taxation treaties, including the USA, Japan, Germany, France, UK, Denmark, Singapore, Canada, Australia, Russia, India, Brazil and more.

The Chinese tax system is also defined as a tax division system as state and regional tax administrations both exist in every administrative area and supervise different kinds of taxes, e.g. value added tax is supervised by state tax administration while individual tax is supervised by regional tax administration.

Here are the most important tax types in China with the respective rates:

  • Corporate income tax: Standard rate: 25%; Reduced rate: 20% for small low-profit Enterprises, 15% for High and new technology Enterprises, 10% for non-resident enterprises.
  • Value added tax (VAT): The VAT rate in China depends on the category of goods or services. For example, the standard rate for trading is 16%, while a rate of 10% for certain goods e.g. products of agriculture and 6% for services is established. Exports from China are free of VAT; The reduced VAT rate of 3% is applicable for small scale enterprises with limits on VAT deductions.
  • Personal income tax: 3%~45% progressive tax rate for wages and salaries; flat tax rate 20% for certain kinds of incomes such as royalties, interests and dividends.

Do not be scared of Chinese taxes or deterred from your business in China. Instead, find and choose the right partner for these matters. You will see that China is also a very interesting business location from a tax point of view.
