State regulations provide that the income tax for enterprises with foreign investment is 30% of the taxable income, yet those enterprises operating within the jurisdiction of Beijing Municipality and/or operating in the Beijing special economic zones will be taxed at a favorable rate of 15%.
Any enterprise with foreign investment in a production-based industry and contracted to operate for a period of not less than ten years shall, from the first year of profitability, be exempted from income tax for two years and have a further fifty percent tax exemption in the third to fifth years.
For enterprises that export their products (after the above-mentioned 5 year tax incentive period expires) the rate of corporate income tax shall be 12% if 70% or more of their total production is exported.
Foreign investors who reinvest their profits/dividends from their enterprises in China for a period of or over 5 years can be refunded 40% of the tax they have paid on the reinvested amount. For reinvestment that is injected into an export-oriented enterprise or enterprise with advanced technology, all the income tax that was paid on the reinvested amount will be refunded.
Equipment imported by overseas-funded projects for their own use may be exempt from customs duties and import value added taxes, provided these projects are listed in the appropriate catalogue of eligible projects.
