Withholding Income Tax treatment of Non-TREs’ passive income under the B2V Pilot Programme

Under the current Business Tax ("BT") to Value Added Tax ("VAT") Transformation Pilot Programme ("B2V Pilot Programme") in China, there is a question on whether passive income derived by Non-Tax Resident Enterprises ("Non-TREs") from the provision of Pilot Services should be subject to Withholding Income Tax ("WIT") net or inclusive of VAT.

On 19 Feb 2013, the State Administration of Taxation ("SAT") issued a notice (SAT Public Notice [2013] No. 9, hereafter referred to as "Public Notice 9") addressing this question. This News Flash looks at this new Public Notice 9 and illustrates the financial impacts to cross-border payments under the B2V Pilot Programme.
