Why use the VAT refund service?
Often our customers do not realize that it is possible to get a VAT refund in China when exporting, but in the meantime it will save you a large sum. According to the Chinese legislation, local and foreign companies that have officially registered their activities and received an export permit, are entitled to a VAT refund. Companies that have permission to export goods from China have the right to apply to the local tax administration for a VAT refund after exporting the goods.
VAT refund is one of the practices of the Chinese state. It is a preferential event within the tax system to stimulate the export of products. The amount to be refunded is calculated according to special formulas, taking into account incoming and outgoing taxes of the company, which are collected in the course of production of this or that product. As you can see, receiving a VAT refund is not only beneficial, but also quite official practice in China.
Features of Chinese VAT:
- VAT in PRC – the rate directly depends on the type of exported products and is determined in accordance with the unified electronic database system of the tax service;
- High rates of VAT refunds are observed in industries that are most interesting for the Chinese state and promising for the economy, so the rate of return reaches 17%. Thus, China stimulates this or that industry, demonstrating its interest in it;
