China Streamlines Tax Payment Services
The Manual of Tax Services (Version 3.0) and the Operation Manual on Tax Collection and Administration - both issued recently by the State Taxation Administration (STA) - came into force nationwide on 1 November. These two new sets of rules will encourage moves towards standardised taxation, help modernise the national governmental system and improve the administration of the taxation service.
The Manual (Version 3.0) improves the existing regime by reducing the number of tax clearance certificates, streamlining the taxation administration process and cutting the processing time. It will further unify and standardise the handling of tax and fee collections across the mainland, making it easier to pay tax.
