As one of the early pilot regions of the new tax refund system that recently came online, Guangdong has processed export tax refunds and exemptions totaling RMB 299.227 billion for upwards of 40 thousand enterprises since August 31, 2020.
Over the 10-month pilot operation, Guangdong taxation administration has been stepping up efforts to incorporate export tax refund declarations, examining and letter-based investigations into the “Third-phase Golden Tax Project”, thus integrating a series of services including tax collection, tax refunds, invoice issuance and inspections.
Furthermore, enterprises can declare export tax refunds through three channels for free: the online declaration software of electronic tax administration, the offline export tax refund declaration instrument and the online declaration software of China International Trade Single Window.
With the newly built system, Guangdong’s (except Shenzhen) export tax refund and exemption amounted to RMB 175.165 billion, with a year-on-year increase of RMB 28.955 billion, up 19.8%. Provincial tax refunds reached RMB 94.99 billion, rising by RMB 15.748 billion year on year, up 19.87%.
