The State Administration of Taxation (SAT) issued the Announcement on Several Issues concerning Collection and Administration of Enterprise Income Tax (EIT) on Enterprise Reorganization on 24 June, amending procedural guidance on tax-free corporate reorganizations. The standards apply to corporate reorganizations completed in or after 2015, as well as corporate reorganizations for which agreements have been signed but transactions have not yet been completed.

Background

The general rule for corporate reorganizations is that gains and losses should be recognized when the corporate reorganization occurs.

The announcement amends and replaces parts of the measures.
