Income Tax Law of the People's Republic of China for Enterprises with Foreign Investment and Foreign Enterprises
(Adopted at the Forth Session of the National People's Congress and promulgated by Order No. 45 of the President of the People's Republic of China on April 9, 1991)

Article 8

Any enterprise with foreign investment of a production nature scheduled to operate for a period of not less than 10 years shall, from the year in which it begins to make profits, be exempted from income tax in the first and second years and allowed a 50% reduction in the third to fifth years. However, the exemption from or reduction of income tax for enterprises with foreign investment engaged in the exploration of resources such as oil , natural gas, rare metals, noble metals, etc., shall be regulated separately by the State Council. Enterprises with foreign investment have actually operated for a period of less than 10 years shall repay the amount of income tax already exempted or reduced.

The relevant regulations promulgated by the State Council before the entry into force of this Law, which provide preferential treatment in the form of exemption from or reduction of income tax for enterprises engaged in energy, communications, harbor, wharf and other major projects of a production nature for a period longer than that specified in the preceding paragraph, or which provide preferential treatment in the form of exemption from or reduction of income tax for enterprises engaged in major projects of a non-production nature, shall remain applicable after this Law enters into force.

Any enterprise with foreign investment which is engaged in agriculture, forestry or animal husbandry and any other enterprise with foreign investment which is established in remote underdeveloped areas may, upon approval by the competent department for tax affairs under the State Council of an application filed by the enterprise, be allowed a 15% to 30% reduction of the amount of income tax payable for a period of 10 years following the expiration of the period for tax exemption or reduction, provided for in the preceding two paragraphs.

After this Law enters into force, any modification to the provisions of the preceding three paragraphs of this Article on the exemption from or reduction of income tax on enterprises shall be submitted by the State Council to the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress for decision.
