The ELEVATE Update on China social insurance: What you need to know now

达岸公司ELEVATE有关中国社会保险改革的资讯分享: 这可能是你目前需要了解的事情。

The Reform Plan of Collection & Management of National Tax and Local Tax was promulgated by the Chinese Government in July 2018. On 1 January 2019, the responsibility for collecting and administering all five types of the social insurance items will be the responsibility of local tax authorities.


What does this mean for your organization?


With the full implementation of the Reform Plan, it is expected that enterprises may face increased social insurance premium since the tax authorities will have direct access to the social insurance premium records of PRC enterprises.


This webinar will help you:


  • Learn the scope and timing of the Reform Plan
  • 知道改革方案的实施时间及适用范围。
  • Know potential impacts to labor costs and employee stability
  • 认识改革方案对劳动力成本和职工稳定性的潜在影响。
  • Understand how this affects your responsible sourcing program and any necessary adjustments
  • 了解改革方案如何影响您们的负责任采购项目,以便作出一些需要的调整
  • Consider the likely short-term path to be followed by the Government
  • 探索政府可能采取的短期措施。
