China has taken specific measures for small-scale VAT payers to support them in containing the difficult economic situation caused by the coronavirus.


For small-scale VAT payers in Hubei Province, VAT is exempted, while for those outside in other areas of China, the VAT rate is reduced to 1 per cent. The policy will be valid from March to May 2020.


According to the current regulations, enterprises with annual sales revenue of lower than RMB 5 million can be recognised as small-scale VAT taxpayers; the VAT rate applicable is 3 per cent.
