Programme Synopsis

The new China Individual Income Tax (IIT) law took effect from 1 January 2019 and the annual filing was completed by 30 June 2020. This topical webinar will uncover the IIT issues identified thus far post filing. What was the new law’s impact on foreigners working in China? Are there any differences between the law and the practical enforcement? Are there any special treatments because of COVID-19? How can we overcome China IIT issues for 2021 filing? These burning questions will be answered in this webinar.
