China's large aircraft development benefits from tax cuts

(People's Daily Online)    14:17, January 17, 2020

China's aviation industry has benefited from the implementation of a series of tax reduction and fee cut policies, which has promoted the production of more domestically made largest aircraft.

The Hongdu Aviation Industry Company from Jiangxi province in Eastern China is one of the beneficiaries. On May 26, 2009, the Hongdu C919 project was officially established, becoming the only supplier for front fuselage and middle rear fuselage of the domestically made large aircraft C919.

"The tax department attached great importance to it and set up a special mechanism for quick response to tax-related matters and introduced the 'chief liaison officer' system into the group," recalls Rao Guohui, chief accountant of the group, of the aircraft manufacturing process.

The policy dividend brought by tax and fee reduction has continuously promoted the company's scientific and technological innovation.

"In 2019, larger scale tax cuts and fee reductions were implemented. In the first half of the year, in addition to the continuation of the previous preferential tax policies, Hongdu has enjoyed nearly 50 million yuan (about $7.3 million) in high-tech tax incentives such as additional deductions for R&D expenses," Rao said.

Today, the aviation industry has become an important driving force for the growth of Jiangxi province. According to official figures, the total revenue of the province's aviation industry exceeded 100 billion yuan in 2019.

The introduction of various national tax and fee reduction policies in recent years has also brought real benefits to Shanghai Shangfei Aircraft Equipment Manufacturing Company.

"When the company was facing a development bottleneck, various preferential tax policies were like helping hands that reduced the company's tax costs, sped up the capital flow rate, allowed the company to invest more funds in R&D and innovation, and increased the development speed of the enterprise," said Zhou Caihua, the company's financial director.

Since 2016, there has been an accumulated 1.3 million yuan of enterprise income tax reduction for Shangfei. "With a tax bill like this, we feel more confident about the future of our company," Zhou pointed out happily.

"Tax cuts and fee reductions have greatly reduced the burden on the enterprise and enhanced its vitality and market competitiveness," said Yan Feng, executive vice president of the company, adding that thanks to China's tax policies, the development of domestically made aircraft is certain to have a good future.
