TOPIC:  The Challenges and Risks of China's New Transfer Pricing and Anti-Tax Avoidance Rules

In September 2015 China's State Administration of Taxation (SAT) released a draft revision to the current Circular 2 which provide comprehensive guidance on China's transfer pricing and anti-tax avoidance rules.

Further to this, the SAT has expressed a desire to implement the recommendations of the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project, an initiative that aims to close the gap on corporate profits relating to unreasonable tax planning and avoidance and the draft revisions to the Circular 2 are thoughts reflecting China's response to these recommendations.

We are delighted to invite you to join us as we discuss the challenges, risks and potential solutions of China's changing tax landscape including:

  • The key changes under the draft revision of Circular 2;
  • The challenges of preparing China transfer pricing documentation in 2016;
  • The risks and solutions for typical China sourcing, manufacturing, service and distribution models; and
  • The risks associated with potential enforcement of PE rules under BEPS actions.


  • If you have significant inter-company royalties paid into or out of China;
  • If you have inter-company service fees paid into or out of China;
  • If you are currently sourcing from China through Chinese affiliates or visiting personnel;
  • If you are distributing into China from overseas by leveraging a Chinese affiliate's sales force;
  • If you use a Chinese affiliate for toll processing or contract manufacturing;
  • If you use a Chinese affiliate for contract R&D; and
  • Anyone who has the obligation of preparing China transfer pricing documentation.
