new rules restrict apps’ collection of user data
new chinese policies affect you soon! let's check
china has issued new regulations that clarify what counts as “necessary” personal information that mobile apps are allowed to collect from users. the regulation will come into effect on may 1. 
 
in a document introduced last month, the ministry of industry and information technology, the ministry of public security and some other departments have listed clearly the necessary personal information that 39 categories of apps can collect. 
 
new chinese policies affect you soon! let's check
 
for example, a car-hailing app can only obtain a user’s name, telephone number and location, because such information is necessary. the user’s photograph and gender are unnecessary details and hence the app should not collect them. 
 
the move is a clear signal that apps should refrain from obtaining detailed personal information, let alone sell it for money.

updates on testing requirements
 

for passengers who have received non-inactivated vaccines

if the nucleic acid test result is negative and the igm antibody test result is positive due to inoculation of china-made vaccine, the applicant can apply for the health code following normal procedures
 
please download the statement of covid-19 vaccination or the letter of commitment on covid-19 vaccination, fill it out truthfully, sign in and upload it together with the “dual-tests” certificates and vaccination certificates through the application website. 
 
here are the websites for downloading the statement (疫苗接种声明书): 
  • letter of commitment on covid-19 vaccination (issued by the chinese embassy in the us.)

after the notices were issued, we see some media reports say that china has begun accepting non-chinese vaccines and will ease the entry policy for international travelers. 
however, as the notice says, the regulations have been set for china-bound passengers’ tests and health code application. these measures would not affect the adjustment of entry policy and quarantine measures.

policy tightened! all individual shareholders need to know this!

policy tightened! all individual shareholders need to know this!

starting from april 1, individual shareholders need to provide tax payment vouchers of individual income tax (iit) and stamp tax when transferring shares. this means that china has further tightened tax policies. it is more and more significant to do tax planning for those who do business in the country. 
according to the guangzhou government, individuals who transfer shares and apply for registration of share change are required to present the certificate on relevant payment of the individual income tax (iit) after declaration. 
 

policy tightened! all individual shareholders need to know this!

△ notice issued by guangzhou tax bureau and guangzhou administration for market regulation 

 

policy tightened! all individual shareholders need to know this!

△ a sample of the certificate on payment of the iit on the earnings from share transfer

 
how to calculate? 
 
iit payable = (earning from share transfer – original value of share – certain fees) * 20% 
* on the basis of asset transfer. 
 
stamp tax payable = earning from share transfer * 0.05% 
 
tax payable of corporate shareholder = (earning from share transfer – original value of share – certain fees) * applicable tax rate 
 

when the invested company has profits, the earning from share transfer shall not be 0 and not less than the undistributed profits based on the share proportion. otherwise, it will be considered that the price is less than its fair market value.

the above-mentioned fees include taxes and fees incurred in the transfer. besides, paid-in capital shall be taken into account for the original price of share. the original price of share will be 0 if the paid-in capital is 0.

policy tightened! all individual shareholders need to know this!

case one

individual a and company b invested and set up company c with no paid-in capital. there’s no income during the operation (the statement of profit and loss shows that the undistributed profit is negative). now company d is planning to acquire company c. 
 
in this case, both a and b don’t need to pay tax
 
policy tightened! all individual shareholders need to know this!
however, a is still required to present the certificate on payment of the iit on the earnings from share transfer issued by tax authorities. 
 

case two

individual a and company b invested and set up company c with no paid-in capital. there are some incomes during the operation (the statement of profit and loss showed that the undistributed profit is positive). now company d is planning to acquire company c. 
 
for individual a: 
① iit payable = (earning from share transfer – stamp tax payable) * 20% 
② stamp tax payable = earning from share transfer * 0.05% 
 
for company b: 
① corporate shareholder’s tax payable = (earning from share transfer – stamp tax payable) * applicable tax rate 
② stamp tax payable = earning from share transfer * 0.05% 
 
policy tightened! all individual shareholders need to know this!
 
 
any preferential policy? 
 
foreigners have long enjoyed preferential tax subsidy and tax exemption policies in china. 
 
as china’s individual income tax law keeps improving, foreigners can enjoy a series of tax reduction policies just like their chinese colleagues and friends. 
 
for example, foreign individuals can apply for iit exemption or reduction on dividends paid by foreign-invested enterprises.
 
for small-scale taxpayers, they also can see their stamp tax payments halved
 
policy tightened! all individual shareholders need to know this!
as the government keeps improving laws and regulations, tax policies are eventually tightened. therefore, it is necessary to do tax planning in advance to manage your money in a better way.
