Information Workplace on The Expected Changes in China Individual Income Tax Law For the French Expats in China & Cross-border Tax Consequences for The French Expats

September 17, 2018


On 31 August 2018, the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC) passed and issued the final bill to amend the Individual Income Tax Law. The major content of the final amendment bill is basically the same with an earlier draft, which was issued on 19 June 2018 for public comments. The amendment bill introduces key changes to the law. In particular, the amendment bill:

• reduces the time presence threshold for a non-domiciliary to constitute a Chinese tax resident. It revises the tax resident concept

• adjusts taxable income categories, tax brackets and deduction items

• introduces new anti-avoidance rules

The amendment bill will take effect from 1 January 2019, but the adjustment to the tax brackets and deduction items will also apply to salaries and wages, as well as operating income derived as from 1 October 2018. Once taking effect, the bill will have far reaching impacts on French individuals’ tax liabilities in China.

These expected changes combined with the changes of tax law in France will create a large number of practical issues for the French expats.

The purpose of that workplace is to make a point on these expected changes and practical issues, in order to better understand and anticipate the actions that French expats will need undertake.
