Analyse de la Réforme de la TVA en Chine

Published: November 2016

Début 2012, la Chine a débuté une réforme massive de son système fiscal en lançant le remplacement de sa “taxe sur les affaires” (“business tax” ou “BT”) par la taxe sur la valeur ajoutée (“TVA”). Avant cette réforme, la TVA n’était appliquée qu’aux ventes et importations de biens corporels et à la prestation de services de transformation, de réparation et de remplacement ; tandis que la BT était appliquée à la prestation de tout autre service et aux transferts de biens incorporels et immobiliers. Depuis mai 2016, la TVA est appliquée à la plupart des domaines initialement soumis à la BT, et est dorénavant la seule taxe chinoise portant sur la consommation. Dans ce numéro de China Briefing, nous nous proposons d’exposer au lecteur certains des aspects les plus importants de la réforme de la TVA et affectant les entreprises étrangères intervenant en Chine.

Evaluating China's VAT Reform

Published: November 2016

At the beginning of 2012, China began a massive overhaul of its tax system by initiating the replacement of business tax (BT) with value-added tax (VAT). Prior to the reform, VAT was levied only on the sale and import of tangible goods and on the provision of processing, repair, and replacement services, while BT was levied on the provision of all other services as well as the transfer of intangibles and property. As of May 2016, VAT has taken over almost all of BT's various functions, and is now effectively China's only form of consumption tax. In this edition of China Briefing, we walk readers through some of the most salient aspects of the VAT reform affecting foreign businesses in China.

Both have undergone significant change in recent years, altering the way in which foreign companies must engage with the food & beverage industry, and must be thoroughly understood prior to market entry.
