Seminar | Environmental Tax Law and Manufacturers

07-12-19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Starting from this April, mainland factories will be taxed for producing noise, air and water pollutants, as well as solid waste; although this levy may vary by geographic locations. In order to incentivise energy efficiency, green investments and innovation the State Council, China’s top administrative body, allows provinces and municipalities to set their own tax rates based on the region’s environmental, economic, and social contexts. Subsequently, this allows them to fully allot the tax revenues for environmental protection measures.

By The Collective 

AustCham, German Chamber and PW & Partners Law Firm brings you the latest on Chinese Environmental Law at our Legal Seminar at Canton Place on July 12. The Environmental Law Seminar presents a comprehensive update on Environmental Tax Law and how to navigate its conditions in your business interactions in China.

This seminar will not only focus on Environmental Compliance and Environment Law Compliance, but will also reveal how manufacturers should handle environmental administrative inspections and avoid penalties.

The Environmental Law Seminar will leave you with a deeper understanding of Chinese environmental law and offer key pointers on how to adjust your business model to ensure that it is operating in conjunction with the latest regulations.
