China's Ministry of Finance and State Administration of Taxation have jointly issued Announcement No. 21 of 2021, which extends the exemption from land appreciation (value-added) tax on immovable property and land-use rights transferred as part of qualifying corporate restructuring to 31 December 2023. The extension is effective from 1 January 2021.
Land appreciation tax is a deductible tax on gains realized from the transfer of immovable property and land-use rights ranging from 30% to 60% of the gain. Subject to certain conditions, the exemption is provided in the following cases:
