Announcement by State Taxation Administration (STA)

The State Taxation Administration released on June 16, 2021 the Announcement about Optimizing and Integrating Export Tax Rebate Information Systems and Providing Better Services to Taxpayers, with effect from June 3, 2021.

The STA has integrated export tax rebate systems, streamlined and optimized tax rebate application documents, tax settlement procedures and certificate issuance procedures. The announcement has listed nine circumstances where export tax rebate (exemption) documents can be streamlined; for instance, taxpayers will no longer have to provide Registration Form for Recordation of a Foreign Trade Business Operator, the Approval Certificate for a Foreign-Funded Enterprise in the People's Republic of China, and the Registration Certificate of Customs Declaration Entities in the People's Republic of China.
