The Zhuhai Hengqin State Taxation Bureau was recently honored as the "Civilized Unit of Guangdong Province". The nameplate unveiling ceremony was held in Hengqin's Integrated Administrative Service Center on April 18, 2016.
Liu Jia, secretary of the Party committee in Hengqin and Zhong Guosheng, director of Zhuhai's Civilization Office, attended the ceremony.
After the ceremony, Liu Jia, together with the visiting group, visited the service area dedicated to handle businesses related to the shift from business tax to value added tax. The service center is jointly managed by Hengqin state and local taxation bureaus, the Administration for Industry and Commerce, the police's seal carving office and the taxation control service office. The service center serves as a a green channel for enterprises, with one-stop services covering relevant training materials, inquiries, tax registration certificate replacement, tax control equipment purchasing, tax control equipment issuance. It takes only about 10 minutes to complete the shift.

The arrangement of their staff in an coordinated manner and the close cooperation between the two departments is a perfect integration of services, information and law enforcement. This will facilitate Hengqin's efforts to foster a business environment similar to the international one in Hong Kong and Macao," stressed Liu Jia.
"The Change from Business Tax to Value-Added Tax is an important fiscal and taxation reform which will make a great difference to enterprises in the future," stressed Hu Zhuohuan, from Zhuhai Chimelong Investment and Development Co., Ltd.
