Approval for the 15% preferential Corporate Income Tax rate for Qianhai, Hengqin and Pingtan new areas  

China Tax Alert - Issue 11, May 2014


The MOF and SAT jointly released Circular 26 on 25 March 2014 which officially states the policy for qualified companies in three new areas – Hengqin New Area (“Zhuhai Hengqin”) , Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Modern Service Industry Cooperation Zone (“Shenzhen Qianhai”)  and Pingtan Comprehensive Experimental Zone (“Fujian Pingtan”)  – to enjoy a reduced Corporate Income Tax (CIT) rate of 15 percent. The publication of Circular 26 also finally clarifies the uncertainties surrounding the CIT incentive policy. This is a welcome development for companies contemplating investing and settling in Zhuhai Hengqin, Shenzhen Qianhai and Fujian Pingtan, as the CIT policy is the major attraction for these three new areas.
