ITR and KPMG China hosted a webinar on October 13 to discuss the indirect tax challenges which lay ahead for businesses in China for 2021 and 2022.

 

 

Available on demand, watch the webinar which looks at the future of China's indirect tax regimes.

In association with KPMG China, the webinar took place on October 13 at 10am BST (London time) / 5pm CST (Beijing time).

2021 has been another challenging year for businesses, who continue their efforts to respond in an agile manner to the impacts of the pandemic and geopolitical changes. In parallel, many governments have taken the opportunity to introduce tax changes which would otherwise not be easy to implement during good economic times.

China has introduced many indirect tax changes in 2021 and it is understood that plans have been made to make further changes in 2022. 

This ITR webinar:

  • Provides a stock take of the Chinese indirect tax policy changes in 2021

  • Previews the Chinese indirect tax changes anticipated for 2022, including but not limited to impacts from the Chinese VAT Law and Consumption Tax Law legislative process

  • Discusses anticipated Chinese green taxes developments

The 60-minute webinar was moderated by ITR
