In recent years, China has signed numerous double taxation conventions to promote foreign investment and economic integration with foreign companies. These tax treaties specify whether the right to deduction is due to the country of origin or country of residence, which excludes the likelihood of double taxation. It should be kept in mind that the Chinese tax authorities conduct a thorough investigation into the transaction links between their foreign subsidiaries in order to eliminate the possibility of operating an MNC in order to reduce its taxable income by using the transactions of the near party.
