  • The provision of processing, repairs and replacement
  • The importation of goods

Basis of Assessment

Tax Rate

Value added tax payers comprise general taxpayers and small-scale taxpayers

  • The VAT rate is 6%, 9%, 13% for general taxpayers
  • The VAT rate is 3% for small-scale

Computation of Tax Payable

  • Tax Payable by General Taxpayers=Tax Payable on Sales in Current Period - Tax Payable on Purchase in Current Period, where
  • Tax Payable on Sales means the VAT computed received from the purchasers by the taxpayers selling goods or providing taxable services according to stipulated VAT rate
  • Tax Payable on Purchase means the VAT paid by the taxpayers purchasing goods or accepting taxable services, which in comparison with the foregoing Tax Payable on Sales received by the sellers, is paid by the purchasers.
  • Tax Payable by Small-scale Taxpayers = Tax-including Sales Amount ÷ (1+Tax Rate)× Tax Rate
