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.
