Understanding China’s VAT System


Though the Value-Added Tax (VAT) reform was fully implemented as China’s only indirect tax in May last year, perfection and streamlining of the system is still underway.

Over the past year, the China tax bureau has implemented a series of regulatory changes aimed at streamlining and simplifying the VAT system, including new software and reporting programs. While the VAT system now more closely aligns China’s tax system with international standards, it still maintains some unique characteristics and complexities.

Vivie Wei, Business Development Manager from Vistra, will elaborate on the major updates to VAT reform in 2017 from both the practical and administrative perspective.
