Individual Income Tax Calculator

Individual income tax liability in China is calculated according to three factors:

  1. the source of an individual's income; 
  2. whether an individual is determined under Chinese law to be domiciled in China for tax purposes; and
  3. the length of their stay in China.

The following calculator provides quick computation of income tax payable and compulsory social insurance obligations.

Each tax case is unique and the tax and welfare regulatory environment changes regularly therefore this tool may not be applicable to your actual situation. Please contact an S.J. Grand representative to discuss your personal tax advisory needs.
