6. Better tax services help boost development
A seminar on how to develop the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (Greater Bay Area) by further improving taxation and tax services was held yesterday in Bao’an District.
The seminar was jointly organized by the taxation authorities of Bao’an District and the Qianhai area of the China (Guangdong) Pilot Free Trade Zone and the Taxation Institute of Hong Kong. The curtain of the district’s 27th National Tax Awareness Month was raised at the same time.
“The eight-year reform of the district’s tax administration and collection has brought great convenience to taxpayers,” Xing Huaer, head of Bao’an’s local taxation bureau, told the seminar.
Xing was one of six representatives invited to talk about the reform and changes of tax regime and tax services taking place that are positively influencing the development of the Greater Bay Area.
“We have built more than 100 systems to intensify the risk control of tax collection, and provide accurate data and standards for taxation,” said Xing.
Xing also said that the bureau has provided 72 kinds of tax services that only require taxpayers’ presence in person in one place and without the need for a second visit. “Most of the district’s tax services are now provided online so most taxpayers can finish their declarations on the Internet,” he said.
Wong Shun-on, vice president of the Taxation Institute of Hong Kong, explained Hong Kong’s tax regime and illustrated the SAR’s efforts to improve its taxation.
The seminar also provided an opportunity for tax accountants from different companies to communicate with tax authorities in order to help those enterprises smoothly and efficiently contribute to the construction of the Greater Bay Area.
