According to recent reports, there are still disputes over the basis of improving the tax integration of the crypto ecosphere in China. This is due to the research and data collection of the state revenue officials, who are against the property and believe that they are a risk factor.
Crypto to be implemented in tax collection
Chinese revenue authorities are reportedly looking for large institutions and individual investors based on their personal profits and income in the past year.
In addition, China Tax News released a report calling for cooperation from government departments to prevent tax risks embedded in virtual assets. The statement added that crypto investment companies can conduct their operations outside the country as long as they pay VAT and other relevant revenues.
The report also declared that using digital currencies for transactional purposes can be considered as an ‘invalid civil act’.
Nevertheless, holding the asset is not prohibited as crypto assets such as bitcoin have shown a trend of persistence and have not yet departed. Therefore, according to the Chinese government, it should be implemented into the revenue system to prevent individuals from evading taxes through these assets.
China May Look To Cryptocurrency After Reopening The Economy
On September 24, 2022, the Chinese Regulatory Commission banned the operation of digital currencies. The state declared virtual currency-based transactions such as trading and mining illegal.
However, the state is looking deeply into rebuilding its economic condition with digital currencies as part and parcel of the plan. The country introduced its own digital currency, the Yuan Token (e-CNY).
The token is said to have taken off, as many people use it to make purchases. The Chinese Yuan will be considered the first government-backed digital asset that has the potential to skyrocket.
China’s pandemic caused a halt to activities as the country announced a lockdown. Staal saw the GDP of the world’s second-largest economy shrink by 19.3%, according to Ting Lu, China’s chief economist.
