On 31 August 2018, the revision of the “Law of PRC on Individual Income Tax (IIT)” was passed at the meeting of the fifth session of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People’s Congress (NPC). The implementation rules of the IIT law of the People’s Republic of China (draft for comments) have also been released on 20 October 2018 and is intended to enable a smooth and comprehensive implementation as well as form the basis for interpretation of the new tax law effective 1 January 2019.

The new IIT Law is a key milestone of the current IIT system, impacting businesses, employers and taxpayers in all aspects from tax and immigration and compensatory/payroll systems to HR compliance.

At this seminar, we will share the specific changes implemented under the tax reform and provide insights on its corresponding wide-ranging impact rippling across the various service sectors. We will also cover potential areas of risks affecting employees travelling to and working in China and what it means to employers to ensure compliance as focus areas.
