SUGGESTIONS ON STRENGTHENING THE WORK OF TAX COLLECTION ADMINISTRATION OF SELF-EMPLOYED PRIVATE ECONOMY AND INTENSIFYING TAX COLLECTION ON AUDIT OF ACCOUNTS (The State Taxation Administration January 10, 1997)
The rapid development of the self-employed private economy in our country since the implementation of the policy of reform and opening up has played a positive role in the development of the social productive forces, bringing prosperity to the socialist market economy, adding to the revenue of the state finance, alleviating the pressure on urban and rural employment and making people’s life more convenient.
However, there also exist a number of problems in the process of the development of the self-employed private economy, especially the phenomena of no account to audit and incomplete accounting books in business operations and disorder in financial management are quite common, and the question of state tax evasion is outstanding which have aroused the concern of the whole society.
This state of affairs, if not changed, will not be conducive to the healthy development of the self-employed private economy and fair competition, nor will it be instrumental to the implementation of the Tax Law.
Therefore, earnest and effective measures have to be taken to further strengthen the work in the financial management and taxation administration of the self-employed private economy.
To this end, the following suggestions are put forth:

integral employment of economic, legal, administrative, ideological and educational means shall be followed to step up guidance, supervision and administration of the self-employed private economy;
the just business operations and legitimate income of households of the self-employed private economy shall be protected;

In specialized markets with the requisite conditions, fixed business households engaging in commercial wholesale or retail should use tax-controlled tills as prescribed while establishing accounting books, their purchase expenses can be listed in expenditure in pre-income tax installments.
To prevent tax money loss and ensure tax revenue, in the initial stage of establishing accounting books, the mode of tax collection on audit of accounts in combination with tax collection at regular intervals in fixed amount can be adopted as a transitional measure.
For all categories of business households taxed at present at regular intervals in fixed amount, the fixed amount shall be adjusted in the light of their operations, and administration in fixed amount shall be strengthened with respect to the few business households that need to be taxed at regular intervals in fixed amount.
Both business households of taxation on audit of accounts and business households of taxation at regular intervals in fixed amount should declare and pay tax truthfully according to law, non-declaration, untruthful declaration or failure to declare the adjusted fixed amount exceeding a certain range of the fixed amount, once investigated and verified, shall be handled as tax evasion.
State tax bureaus and local tax bureaus in all localities should jointly supervise and urge business households of self-employed private economy to establish accounting books.
