  1. Cheers for the intro on VAT and tax implications for investing in China. This was like a class and I learned a lot and my check is in the mail as they say :)

    Professor I have some questions for you:
    – What about inconsistencies within cities in China to tax differently from what national laws dictate? What are the ramifications for that to watch out for?

    – Now that foreign firms and domestic firms are on the same tax level what about certain incentives like high and new technology enterprise tax rules that give discounts to companies? I see in the SOHU and NTES SEC filings that they get these tax breaks in China??

  2. This is a very interesting subject. It would have been great if the guest talked more specifically about China’s taxes, particularly for foreign businesses.
