Q: Invoice from China with, 15% tax?????

We, a HK-company got an invoice from a Chinese supplier for parts custom made for us. The invoice, a MS-Word doc, had a 15% tax added to it. We are assembling the parts in China with help of another company for later export. What kind of tax is it? An overseas company shouldn't be charge for VAT right? Or am i wrong?

They mentioned that i will get and official invoice (fapiao) when thay have received the money. Also that i will get it back (almost, 10-12%) when we eventually export the equipment.

How does that sound?

GuilinRaf:

Sounds very fishy to me. What guarantee do you have that they will pay it back?

They get it back, from govt as they subsidize this, but you will not get it back from them. If you pay, they just get the tax 2times and are happy, how they fool another foreigner and let's go for KTV tonight.

Of course they will. Unless they forget. 'Tax' in this context may mean "sucker fee". Just my 2 pence.

You guys seems not to have much faith in Chinese business people. Why would they promise me it back then. If failing, they would lose a customer which is worth 100 times more than this tax.... I might be wrong though....

bill8899:

No no no. You don't understand. They're not like you. Hell, they're not even like me.

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
