  1. For VAT small scale taxpayers, if monthly sales are below RMB 100,000, or below RMB 300,000 for quarterly VAT declaration, VAT is exempt.
  2. For small scale VAT taxpayers who are subject to 3% tax rate on their taxable sales revenue, the tax rate shall be reduced to 1%; for pre-paid VAT projects with 3% pre-tax rate, a 1% pre tax rate shall be applied for pre-paid VAT.
  3. Small scale VAT taxpayers, small and micro profit enterprises, and individual businesses will be subject to a 50% reduction in resource tax (excluding water resource tax), urban maintenance and construction tax, property tax, urban land use tax, stamp duty (excluding securities transaction stamp duty), farmland occupation tax, education surcharge and local education surcharge. Taxpayers who pay taxes on a monthly basis and where monthly sales do not exceed RMB 100,000, or those who pay taxes on a quarterly basis and whose quarterly sales do not exceed RMB 300,000, are exempt from education surcharges, local education surcharges, and water conservancy construction funds.
