Jan 7, 2019

PRC Individual Income Tax Update

The reform of the PRC Individual Income Tax Law has attracted significant attention in recent months.  The amended Individual Income Tax Law was passed on 31 August 2018, followed by the issuance of the "Regulations on the Implementation of the Individual Income Tax Law of the People's Republic of China (Revised Draft for Soliciting Opinions)" and the consultation draft of "Interim Measures for the Special Deduction of Individual Income Taxes" on 20 October 2018.  These will have significant implications on businesses with operations in the PRC, as well as individuals with frequent travels between Hong Kong and the Mainland.

KPMG tax specialists, Kate Lai and Watson Wat, have pleasure in sharing the latest PRC Individual Income Tax developments, including:

·      Changes in the definition of China tax resident

·      Changes in the source and scope of taxable income

·      Reporting requirements
