Chinese law about China representative office :
The PRC government earlier this year issued new measures that promise significant changes to how foreign representative (rep) offices calculate and file taxes in China. The changes bring China’s law on rep office taxes in line with the 2007 PRC Enterprise Income Tax (EIT) Law and may subject rep offices to new tax requirements and potentially higher tax burdens.

According to the Provisional Measures for Foreign-Enterprise Representative Office Tax Administration, which were released by the PRC State Administration of Taxation in February 2010 and took effect retroactively from January 1, 2010, foreign rep offices must now declare and pay income, business, and value-added taxes on income attributable to the rep office. Previously, rep offices could negotiate EIT exemptions with local tax bureaus on the basis that their rep office activities did not generate revenue. Under the new measures, local tax bureaus can no longer accept new rep office applications for EIT exemptions and must re-evaluate the applications of rep offices that enjoy existing exemptions. Only rep offices that have protection under a relevant double tax agreement may be considered for EIT exemptions.

The measures also clarified tax registration procedures for rep office staff and offered three formulas to calculate tax liability, depending on how complete the rep office’s financial records are:
Actual amount method  Used when the rep office has kept complete records of its expenditures and revenue, this method is comparable to the tax calculation standard laid out in the EIT Law. (Though rep offices typically do not engage in traditional profit-making activities, income has been assessed—and tax levied—based on the services they provide.)

 

Actual-revenue-deemed-profit method  The tax authority will use this method when the rep office has kept complete records of its revenue but not its expenditures. The reported revenue is multiplied by the tax rate and a “deemed profit rate,” which can be no less than 15 percent.

 

Cost-plus method  This method is used when the rep office has kept complete records of its expenditures but not its revenue. In this case, the tax authority will generate a figure to indicate revenue: Revenue = expenditures / [1 – deemed profit rate – tax rate].
