With the intention to encourage and support all sectors to resume production and operation, the Tax Bureau is now allowing Chinese General TaxPayers to be registered as Chinese Small Scale TaxPayers, desde que sejam elegíveis para se inscrever.
What are the differences?
One of the decisions for investors when setting up a business in China is whether to classify the new entity as a Small-scale or GContribuinte geral.
Here are some quick facts of both categories
- Small-scale Taxpayers are exempt from income tax given the business revenue is less than RMB 100,000. The corporate income tax rate applicable is 5%. 3% of value-added tax (VAT) applies to them in ALL business transactions. This VAT rate was just reduced to 1% for Small-scale Taxpayers for all sales that occurred between 1st A 31 de marçost December 2020. (VAT is a similar concept to GST（goods and services tax）in certain countries.)
- ·6% VAT applies to the General Taxpayer, which could be claimed back from the tax bureau during the annual tax refund. For enterprises with a revenue figure between 1 million to 3 million RMB, the corporate tax rate applicable is 10%.
- ·Business owners have the freedom to stay in the category of Small-scale Taxpayers until the accumulated business revenue exceeding five million RMB.
- Once business owners declared themselves as General Taxpayers, the option of being a Small-scale Taxpayer is no longer viable to them.
Não há nenhuma vantagem absoluta em ser também. Dependendo das circunstâncias e da necessidade dos empresários, um pode ser mais atraente do que o outro.
Quem pode se inscrever?
- Investors from certain sectors could only be registered as Contribuintes Gerais (por exemplo, estação de patrulha). Os candidatos de todos os outros setores são elegíveis para se inscrever, assumindo que todos os outros critérios sejam satisfeitos.
