Individual income tax reports must be filed by the end of March
Expatriates earning income in China must self report within the next two weeks
Mar. 8 – China’s new self reporting regulations dictate that expatriates working in China and earning salaries of over RMB120,000 annually must complete self reporting and complete their individual income tax returns by the end of this month. Late payment penalties of up to 5 times the amount due, plus visa problems can arise if this is not carried out.
To make the process easier, the local Chinese tax authorities have included a tax return for completion in each of their local regions. A list of many of these are reproduced below for our reader’s convenience. Documentation however is in Chinese and the returns must be completed in Chinese.
