The State Administration of Taxation announced the adoption of electronic withholding tax payment software from 1 September 2018 onwards and disabled the use of existing online withholding tax reporting channel. Withholding agents shall log into the website of the Guangdong Provincial Tax Service to download the software. If taxpayers face any technical issues in using the software, they can raise their enquiries to the tax bureau through the hotline or online enquiry. Local tax bureaus will also organise free trainings in August and September 2018.
