Working Group Tax & Law - China’s foreign exchange controls: Relaxed or tightened?

November 01, 2017


The French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in China is pleased to introduce to our next session of Tax & Law working group and discuss about China’s foreign exchange controls.

In line with the government's aim to encourage foreign investment and capital inflows into China, the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) has relaxed various foreign exchange (forex) regulations in recent years, including rules governing the use of registered capital funds, foreign debt limit, transfer of funds for cross-border guarantees, forex payments, and remittance of profits. At the same time, due to the depreciation of the RMB and falling forex reserves, PRC authorities have tightened controls on capital outflows. Since late 2016, many foreign-invested enterprises (FIEs) have encountered difficulties and new restrictions when trying to remit forex, especially dividends, out of China. These policies with seemingly contradictory goals have created confusion among foreign investors in China. 

This working group intends to briefly introduce the recent forex measures for FIEs, clear up the confusion and provide some observations and recommendations for dealing with the current landscape of forex controls.
