VAT is a kind of turnover tax levied on the basis of the value added generated by commodities (including taxable services) in the process of circulation. China introduced VAT system in 1979, and now VAT has become the largest tax category. In 2018, the income scale exceeded 6 trillion yuan.

On April 1, VAT ushered in a large-scale tax reduction. The main contents include four items: reducing tax rate, expanding deduction, withholding tax rebate and adding deduction. In terms of tax reduction,

projects with a 16% tax rate are taxed at a 13% tax rate, mainly in manufacturing industries; projects with a 10% tax rate are taxed at a 9% tax rate, mainly in transportation, postal, construction, real estate, basic telecommunications services and agricultural products. For the first time,

included the purchase of domestic passenger transport services in the scope of deduction. For example, if you travel to get train tickets, airplane tickets, bus tickets and other tickets with passenger identity information, the unit can deduct them. At the same time, the income tax paid for real estate will be deducted in two years (60% in the first year and 40% in the second year), instead of a one-time full deduction.

In the aspect of retained tax rebate, retained tax rebate is extended to the whole industry. Taxpayers can refund their newly added retained tax rebate as long as they meet the requirements. The amount of tax withheld refers to the amount of tax withheld by taxpayers that is insufficient to offset the input tax but not fully deducted. Generally speaking, the amount of tax deduction retained before can only wait until the next deduction period of carry-over, but now it can be refunded, which can ease the pressure of enterprise capital occupation and directly increase the cash flow of enterprises.

In terms of accrual and deduction, deducts the tax payable by 10% of the input tax for taxpayers whose main business is postal, telecommunications, modern services and life services.

electricity price adjustment. National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) requires that after the VAT rate of power grid enterprises is adjusted from 16% to 13%, the reduction of tax-containing transmission and distribution prices of provincial power grid enterprises will be used to reduce the general industrial and commercial electricity prices. Reducing the price of electricity for Industry and Commerce will benefit not only industrial enterprises, but also commercial enterprises. Lowering electricity prices may benefit consumers and promote industrial development. The price of natural gas trans-provincial pipeline transportation and the price of natural gas benchmark stations are also being adjusted. The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) requests that when arranging the selling price of natural gas, the price authorities in various places should take into account the reduction of VAT rate as a whole, and earnestly transfer all the dividends of VAT reform to the benefit of users.

Tax rates have fallen further to 13% this year, and retail prices for some mobile phones are expected to fall even more dramatically.

For example, according to the 16% VAT tax rate, the price of a mobile phone is 5000 yuan, then the tax-free price is 5000 yuan (1+16%)=4310 yuan. After the tax rate dropped from 16% to 13%, the latest reduction in retail prices was 4310 * (16% - 13%) = 129.3 yuan. (End)
