Un phénomène dont les medias rendent déjà compte et qui se cristallise plus que jamais autour des questions liées à la fiscalité. Mêlant une expertise économique et juridique à un regard sociologique, le séminaire abordera le problème fiscal de la Chine dans son ensemble – à savoir le rapport entre le centre et les provinces- puis l’enjeu de la reforme de la fiscalité des nouvelles classes enrichies.

Monthly Conferences by Civil Law Initiative ( La Fondation pour le Droit Continental) and the French Cultural Center in Beijing.
The conferences aim at better understanding of Chinese Law and Chinese contemporary society through its legal system, create a platform for debates between the best local and international experts and the local community in Beijing, discuss the value of civil law in the course of globalization through the case of China, at the crossroads of different legal traditions.
Title: China and its Tax Law: Recent Controversies and Issues at Stake
Presentation : As the wealthy and the upper-middle-class in China gain greater voice in the media and the political process, tax issues now appear in public discussions more frequently than ever. Reform of the personal income tax and the introduction of a new property tax are two recent examples. The talk presents both the law and the economics in these two areas of policy, and shows how there is a wide gap between the way tax policymakers consider them and the way they are discussed in the press. As background, a primer about the central and local government’s respective roles in China’s tax system is offered.
