Dalian: taxes from foreign businesses exceed 100m yuan

Updated: 2011-02-12

In Dalian, a port city in Northeast China's Liaoning province, three new categories of taxes from foreign enterprises surpassed 100 million yuan in January, local newspaper Peninsula Morning News reported Friday.

According to the circulars issued by the State Council and Ministry of Finance last year, taxes on urban maintenance and construction, as well as additional education fees, were implemented Dec 1. An additional local education tax would be charged beginning Jan 1 this year from foreign enterprises.

Foreign enterprises and individuals were previously exempt from these taxes, while the local companies were not immune to the taxation.

Figures from Dalian's local taxation bureau show foreign enterprises in Dalian contributed 108.93 million yuan ($ 16.54 million) to the new taxes by the end of January. That marked the end of preferential treatment toward the foreign and foreign-funded enterprises.

Of the total revenue, the urban maintenance and construction tax contributes 69.41 million yuan ($ 10.54 million), additional education fees amount to 29.71 million yuan ($ 4.51 million) and additional local education tax pays 9.81 million yuan ($ 1.49 million).

The additional education fees are used to develop local education. The additional local education tax is 2 percent of the total amount of the value-added tax, consumption tax and business tax combined.

Dalian is home to 2,961 foreign enterprises.
