Guangdong Provincial Taxation Bureau of the State Administration of Taxation has notified that, in order to avoid refunds, it is recommended that employers make normal declarations in accordance with the original practice, but do not pay social insurance premiums for the time being.

After the implementation measures are issued, the tax authorities will adjust the tax system and notify the employers to pay the fees.

When paying the fees, the employers can directly enjoy the partial reduction and exemption of the enterprise's payment, without having to declare again.

As a result of the epidemic situation, if the employer is unable to pay the social insurance premiums of the enterprise employees on time, it can be postponed until three months after the epidemic situation is resolved, and no overdue fine will be collected during the period.

We’ll continue monitoring the local incentives. If businesses need assistance with applying for these incentives, please contact us at
