Since 1983, China has signed 100 such pacts, the latest with Chile in May.Chinese companies benefit from these treaties by enjoying generally lower withholding tax rates on interest, dividends and royalties, among other benefits stipulated. The treaties not only prevent double taxation, they also offer certainty to taxpayers.In 2014, the SAT discussed more than 20 MAP cases with its foreign counterparts, and concluded five of them, the disputed tax of which was about 500 million yuan ($80 million).When the Foreign Ministry conducted a survey of Chinese companies in Africa last year, it found that tax-related issues accounted for 60 percent of the problems these companies encountered. Most of these companies are small ones, without due awareness of seeking treaty protection or adequate knowledge of how a treaty works.According to Liao, there are a few countries along the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road with which China has not signed tax treaties. In Africa, where Chinese investors are plentiful, only about 10 treaties exist. The figure is less than 10 in Latin America.Liao said many old treaties need overhaul to keep up with the evolving bilateral economic interactions, and also to accommodate with the fast-changing international tax rules.For example, a major State-owned enterprise last year rented equipment to its subsidiary in an unidentified treaty country. The country levied tax on the rent the SOE received according to its domestic rates, instead of the withholding tax rate previously agreed by the two countries in the tax treaty.The SOE filed a MAP request with the SAT, which then consulted with the tax authority in the country. The authorities agreed to apply the treaty rate, but with a condition: that the tax bill first be paid under the domestic rate, with the difference to be refunded.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesTrans-regional customs co-op promotes Belt and Road InitiativeRisk awareness vital for success of trade moves, agency saysBelt and Road Initiative opportunity for China-EU cooperationPartnership drives Silk Road strategyCOFCO commits to Belt and Road InitiativeUnionPay eyes expansion with trade initiativesPhotoTop 10 most expensive sports cars for 2016Farmers bet on the bull marketHefei-Fuzhou railway line put into trial operationTop 10 largest banks in the worldWorlds 15 most valuable brands of 2015Gucci launches 50% discount in ChinaChina Economy By NumbersChina Economy by Numbers – Dec China Economy by Numbers – Nov NewsmakerTop executive of Infor has head in the cloud Zwilling stays at cutting edge of the kitchenware industryMost ViewedTodays Top NewsMarkets attracting investors abroadHighlights of 10 years at Apples WWDCInterest rate liberalization in last mileAir China to launch Beijing-Montreal serviceAlibaba expands its territory in domestic film marketDidi Kuadi taxi service violates regulations, Beijing authorities sayChinese stock market explained in new bookChina services PMI continues to grow in May: HSBCHot TopicsFiat SpA Peugeot SA Taxi app Internet finance Housing price Disneyland 12306.cn WeChatEditors PicksWorlds 15 most valuable brands Top 10 most polluted cities in China Top 9 smartphone-driven gadgets Top 10 baijiu brands in China SpecialsBoao Forum For Asia 2015China Development Forum 2015CEO roundtable: new normal& strategies…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
