  • The Personal Income Tax Exemption Policy of Foreign, HK, Macau and Taiwan Talents2019-05-05
    At the end of last year, China revised the "Personal Income Tax Law of the People's Republic of China" and the "Implementation Regulations", which have been officially implemented since January 1 this year. The new tax regulations refer to international practice and determine whether the individual is a “resident individual” in the sense of tax law by whether the individual has a domicile in China, the length of stay in China, and the frequency of departure and the length of departure. At the same time, the new tax law stipulates the tax liability and obligation exemption for “resident individual” and “non-resident individual” respectively. However, due to the lack of clarity in the provisions of the new law and regulations, many confusions have arisen in the actual application process. Therefore, the Ministry of Finance and the State Administration of Taxation jointly issued the "Announcement on the Judgment Standards for Individuals' Living Time without Residency in China" on March 14 to eliminate relevant practical obstacles.<span id="__kindeditor_bookmark_start_21__"></span>
