The reason why you’ll need to contact us (or another Chinese accounting service) is for a lot of individual cities in China these numbers will vary, even in cities right next to each other. I.E. Foshan, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Dongguan tax rates are all slightly different and change on a 6-month basis and we are not even talking about other provinces yet!

The Personal China Tax tables below


Thankfully both China corporate tax and China VAT charges are fairly simple ordeals to estimate to work out your profit margins! Just put in your profit/total sales and voila! you have a good estimate on how much you’ll be giving to the Government.

Sadly Personal income tax is a little bit more complicated to help out you to understand more we have also provided 3 tables of additional information:


1. Personal social insurance


Personal social insurance has 3 sections to it. In total it is around 10.5% of the wage, give or take, with a minimum and maximum salary requirement. The personal part is paid by the employee’s wage, and the corporate part (twice or more) is directly paid by the employer.

We would recommend talking to your potential staff member and an accountant before hiring anyone to work out the exact cost, however, in the table, you will see how to break down your Chinese personal social insurance.


2. Personal accumulation fund


Your personal accumulation fund/housing fund is a voluntary additional cost. This will cost between 5-12% of your monthly salary with the added bonus of whatever you put in your employer will match it. aka you put in 500rmb, they will put in 500rmb.

Your Personal accumulation fund is not a guarantee, its an extra work benefit, some Employers offer, some don’t. If you are interested in this we once again suggest contacting a China tax accountant to work out the exact costs.


3. Personal tax table


The simplest table. It shows the Chinese tax you will have to pay based upon your income. This will vary from city to city, province to province however it is a good indicator of what you should be paying.
