[Ed. Note: Slashing “service fees” of the government is a reduction in taxes. This is one of the insidious ways the US Federal government raises taxes.]
from The BRICS Post:
Under a central government plan to cut red tape, China has proposed new measures that would allow companies and individuals to save 200 million yuan ($32.7 million) a year, announced the nation’s top economic planning agency.
The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said on Tuesday that 14 government departments will reduce service fees from October.
Service charges for notarisation, vehicle mortgage registration, visa re-application for private individuals, plant quarantine as well as testing of agricultural machinery products will be lowered.
The Finance Ministry and the NDRC said in a statement that charges would be cut for 20 services.
The NDRC said filing for a trademark application would cost 800 yuan instead of 1,000 yuan as an example of the reduced fees.
