Fapiao

For all paid registration options, a Chinese Government Tax Receipt (fapiao) may be requested during the registration process. This is required for only those who live and work in China and pay government tax.

ABACE Management must submit a tax application to the Chinese tax bureau subsequent to ABACE for approval to issue the fapiao. The approval and issuing processing has taken about 4 months based prior experience. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact Evelyn Wu at [email protected] or call +86-21-2234-1801.

Value Added Tax

All badge prices include 6.45% value added tax (VAT). Effective August 2013, the Chinese Tax Authority began to levy VAT on certain services previously subject to business tax on a nationwide basis.

In some cases, you may be able to deduct the VAT paid to ABACE from your VAT remittance to the Chinese Tax Authority.

Please consult your tax advisor for further guidance.
