Recently China's first Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao smart Tax Ask platform was set up in Hengqin in southern China's Zhuhai city. Users can register on the official website of the Zhuhai Hengqin Local Taxation Bureau.
In order to create an international, legal and market-oriented business environment, the Zhuhai Hengqin Local Taxation Bureau has used the "Internet +" model and created a Tax Ask platform. Based on crowdsourcing mutual aid, think tank shares and Witkey (the key of wisdom) encouragement, the platform realizes the integration of taxation creativity, knowledge, wisdom, experience and skills. It has created an increased social benefit through the Internet.
It is understood that the platform has introduced a crowdsourcing model, launching a new concept that "Each person is a tax guide and each person is taxation maker". The Internet is open to the public and the platform invites different communities and experts to register on its website. In this way, the former single taxation guide model will be broken.
The platform has four ask-answer modules. Also, personalized discussion groups have been set up. Everyone can put forward innovative projects and creative ideas, which may be adopted and put into use by tax authorities.
Intelligence sharing is one major feature of the platform. Tax experts from different parts of the world in the think tanks can provide comprehensive tax-related consulting services for the public in three languages, including Chinese, English and Portuguese.
"As soon as the smart Tax Ask platform was created, I registered on the website. I can learn all about tax incentives and business issues. I asked some questions on the platform yesterday and I got answers from experts," noted one platform user.
In addition, to achieve quantitative evaluation of users' knowledge value, a user growth management system has been established. Users' activeness, answer accuracy and professionalism will be evaluated. With their growth value increasing, common users can grow into certified professional tax accountants step by step as well.
