The Supervision and inspection Program for the Review and examination of Preferential Tax Policies for Development Zones
This program is formulated with a view to further implementing the Circular of the State Administration of Taxation concerning the Review and Examination of Preferential Tax Policies for Development Zones （Guo Shui Fa  No. 9， hereinafter referred to as the “Circular”）， strengthening the review and examination of the preferential tax policies for development zones and guiding self-examination and self-correction of local tax authorities.
1. Principles of Supervision
（1） Upholding the law and relevant norms. Supervision and inspection shall， on the basis of current taxation laws， regulations and rules， be carried out in accordance with the requirements of the Circular with reference to the state uniform preferential tax policies for development zones.
（2） Upholding objectivity and impartiality. The materials collected and the situation reflected in the course of supervisions should be true and valid； the subjective and objective reasons for the identified problems should be analyzed in great detail and shall not be exaggerated or understated.
（3） Upholding stress on key points. The supervision shall be carried out with priority in accordance with the scopes of supervision and the different taxation preferential policies applied in development zones at state level and at or below provincial level. The review and examination shall be conducted thoroughly instead of being conducted as a mere formality so as to achieve actual effects.
2. Organization of Supervision
The leaders in charge of tax authorities in various regions shall head the supervisory groups in person. The legal departments shall facilitate the organizing of the supervisory groups with involvement of other relevant departments. The supervisory groups shall supervise more than two tax authorities at prefecture and municipal level chosen with pertinence in the light of the actual situation of different places.
The supervision work shall be carried out for around ten days during the middle ten days of March.
3. Scope of Supervision
The scope of supervision is the implementation of the Circular of the State Administration of Taxation and self-examination and self-correction by various local authorities， including：
（1） The application of preferential tax policies for development zones， including the application of preferential tax policies for the economic and technological development zones， the coastal economic open zones， the high tech industrial development zones established under the approval of the State Council as well as other state-level parks and various development zones established under the approval of the governments at or below the provincial level.
（2） The implementation of preferential tax policies for the development zones. Whether such problems exist in state-level development zones as enterprises outside the development zones enjoying the preferential tax policies for those inside， enterprises registered within but operated outside the zones enjoying the preferential tax policies for the zones， the preferential tax policies being granted to the newly-established enterprises without strict examination of their qualification or development zones by itself expanding the scope of application of preferential tax policies， increasing the preferential tax rates and extending the preferential period. Whether such problems exist for the development zones at or below the provincial level to enact preferential tax policies beyond their taxation jurisdiction or enjoy preferential tax policies applied for the state-level development zones.
（3） Specific opinions and suggestions put forward by various localities in the light of the status quo of various development zones at all levels as well as the implementation of the preferential tax policies inside the development zones.
4. Methods of Supervision
（1） Listening to Reports
The supervisory groups shall listen to the reports on the review of preferential tax policies for development zones presented by the tax authorities at prefecture and municipal level， which shall cover the following contents：
The understanding by leaders of the tax authorities at prefecture and municipal level of the importance of the review and examination of preferential tax policies for development zones； progress of the transmission of the Circular to the state and local tax authorities at municipality and county level； progress of organizing and arranging the review and examination of preferential tax policies for development zones in compliance with the Circular， whether concrete implementation program has been formulated and whether self-examination and self-correction have been carried out.
（2） Holding Symposia
The supervisory groups shall， on the basis of listening to the reports， hold symposia attended by relevant personnel from development zones of different kinds at all levels to further find out the application and implementation of preferential tax policies for development zones as well as problems and suggestions arising from the course of implementation.
（3） On-the-spot Inspection
The supervisory groups shall， on the basis of the information in hand， carry out on-the-spot investigation and inspection in selected tax authorities of the development zones at state level and at or below provincial level. The inspection shall focus on issues such as whether the preferential tax policies are enacted without authorization， whether the application scope of preferential tax policies is enlarged and whether the preferential tax rates are increased and the period extended. During the on-the-spot supervision and inspection， the supervisors shall fill in the original copy of the work memo of review and examination of preferential tax policies for development zones in line with the actual situations.
（4） Paying Visits to Enterprises
When carrying out investigations into matters such as applying inside policies of various development zones by outside enterprises and enterprises registered with the zones but running business operated outside， as well as other matters found out during the inspection， on which an investigation is needed to be extended to enterprises， visits to these enterprises shall be conducted in order to get a clearer picture and ascertain the matters.
5. Requirements of Supervision
All local tax authorities shall deepen their understanding， strengthen their leadership， carry out the supervision and inspection work conscientiously and ensure the problems are identified. Going through the motions is strictly prohibited.
