How should individuals engaged in business on the mainland calculate their personal income tax liability?
According to the Individual Income Tax Law of the People’s Republic of China (which came into force on 1 January this year), all income earned by mainland-resident individuals from business operations should be taxed on the basis of total income earned in each tax year after any legally-mandated costs, fees or losses have been deducted.
The currently-applicable tax rates are as follows:
Individual Income Tax Rates (Applicable to Income from Business Operations)
|Grade||Annual Taxable Income (RMB)||Tax Rate|
|1||30,000 or less||5%|
|2||Amount in excess of 30,000 to a maximum of 90,000||10%|
|3||Amount in excess of 90,000 to a maximum of 300,000||20%|
|4||Amount in excess of 300,000 to a maximum of 500,000||30%|
|5||Amount in excess of 500,000||30%|
