How Will the New Individual Income Tax Reform Affect You?

Shanghai, China l September 19, 2018 l 6:30PM - 8:30PM

China is making major amendments to the Individual Income Tax Law. With public consultation on the draft law recently completed, the first changes are set to take effect on October 1, 2018, and the full law taking effect on January 1, 2019. It is time to review how the new law will impact your business.

Dezan Shira & Associates, in partnership with the Danish Chamber of Commerce in China, are hosting an event to discuss the changes in the latest draft and answer questions like:

  • What are the new tax rates taking effect on October 1st?
  • How will the switch from Monthly to Annual tax calculation affect yearend bonuses paid after January 1st?
  • Which special deductions for foreigners are being cancelled?
  • What new deductions will be available in the future?
  • What will the removal of “the five-year rule” mean for expats with overseas income?

As this is still a draft law not all questions can be fully answered. However, familiarizing yourself with the upcoming amendments will be of utmost importance for future tax planning.
