General Taxpayer Application
Information provider:zanya consultants    Updated:2016/10/24    Website:www.companyformation86.com

VAT payers in China are separated into two different categories – general taxpayers and the small-scale taxpayers – and the VAT rates vary for different statuses.General taxpayers are subject to a 13% VAT rate for designated goods and a 17% VAT rate for all other goods and all taxable services.


Although the VAT rate for small-scale taxpayers is much lower, obtaining the general taxpayer status is still essential and beneficial for companies with considerable annual business turnover, because the status has the following advantages:


1. Increase companies’ range of potential clientele as well as credibility by allowing them to issue official VAT invoice.


2.Allow companies to deduct the input VAT from output VAT.
