Zhuhai Updates Income Tax Assessment Procedures
Zhuhai has issued updated guidelines for the assessment of individual income tax liabilities. Full details of the new requirements are contained in two separate tables:
- The Table of Individual Income Tax Rates by Sector
This focuses on income derived from individually-owned businesses or partnerships, with the applicable tax rates divided into three bands on a sector-specific basis – 8%, 10% and 20%
- The Table of Tax Rates for the Assessment and Levy of Individual Income Tax
This focuses on the assessment of personal income tax liabilities, with the applicable tax rates divided into five bands on a sector-specific basis – 0.6%, 0.8%, 1%, 1.5% and 2%.
The new measures come into effect as of 1 July and have been jointly-mandated by the Zhuhai Municipal Tax Service and the Zhuhai Municipal Hengqin New Area Tax Service, both of which are divisions of the State Administration of Taxation (SAT).
