Funding programmes in Guangdong province

Funding programmes in Guangdong province

Manyfunding programmes and incentivesare offered by the Guangdong provincial administration, both by the Department of Science and Technology (mainly for research and innovation projects) and the Department of Industry and Information Technology (mainly for technological upgrading, digitalisation, etc.). Other programmes are also offered by municipal administrations all across the province. Under this project, a total of 28 funding programmes were analysed at the provincial level and in the municipalities ofShenzhen,GuangzhouandDongguan.

The High- and New-Technology Enterprise (HNTE) status is one of Chinas core innovation tax policies under ChinasCorporate Income Tax Law. The concept of HNTE status emerged in the 1990s to encourage investment in high-tech and R&D areas through a series of benefits including fiscal and tax incentives. The HNTE status offers qualified companies asignificant reduction of the Corporate Income Tax (CIT) rate.

According to the latest revision of theManagement Measures for the Recognition of High- and New-Technology Enterprisesissued in January 2016 by MOST, MOF and SAT, enterprises must meet the following requirements in order to qualify to HNTE status:

Being registered in Mainland China for at least one year before the application is submitted

Own IP rights of the key technologies which show core support to the enterprises main products (services). Such rights may be obtained through independent R&D, transfer, donation, or mergers and acquisitions;

The technologies which show core support to the enterprises main products (services) shall belong to one of the areas outlined in the

Catalogue of High- and New-Technology Areas Specifically Supported by the State

At least 10% of the total number of the enterprises employees should be engaged in R&D and related activities

R&D expenditures in the last three financial years should account to a certain percentage of the enterprises total sales revenue in the same period:

Over 5% if total revenue is below 50 million RMB;

Over 4% if total revenue is between 50 and 200 million RMB;

Over 3% if total revenue exceeds 200 million RMB.

In addition, at least 60% of the enterprises total R&D expenditure must be incurred in China

Income derived from high- and new-technology products (services) should amount to at least 60% of the enterprises total revenue

The assessment of the enterprise innovation capabilities is in line with relevant standards

The enterprise should have not occurred any major safety or quality incident in the previous year, and should have not had any behaviour against the law

Reduction of the Corporate Income Tax (CIT), from the standard 25% tax rate to 15%, regardless of the companys investment type and where its headquarters are located;

Once approved, the HNTE status will last for three years, after which the application needs to be re-submitted.

When and where are application calls published?

Applications are opened after an official announcement is published on the web portal of the Guangdong Provincial Department of Science and Technology, usually between March-June every year. Applications can be submitted in three different batches, each with specific its own deadline.

Several trainings and workshops on topics relating to the application process are also organised by municipal- and prefecture-level authorities.

International participation: figures and opportunities

Domestic and foreign-invested enterprises (FIEs) are equally eligible to apply as long as they comply with the requirements listed above. However, it is commonly believed that the eligibility requirements might be more challenging to meet for FIEs.*

Over a ten thousands enterprises are selected as HNTEs every year. Around 3% in of newly-selected HNTEs in 2018 were foreign-invested enterprises, including many cases of wholly foreign-owned enterprises (though mostly Hong Kong or Taiwanese). A few examples include:

Drom Fragrances International (Guangzhou) Ltd. (German WFOE)

Heavy Goyo (Guangzhou) Mechanical Equipment Co., Ltd (German WFOE)

AMS Product Assembly (Foshan) Co., Ltd. (Italian WFOE)

PR (Zhuhai) Auto parts Co., Ltd. (Italian WFOE)

Cnim Transport Equipment (Foshan) Co., Ltd (French WFOE)

Andritz (China) Co., Ltd. (Austrian WFOE)

Emicore Corporation (Zhuhai) Co., Ltd. (UK WFOE)

Essel Packaging (Guangzhou) Ltd. (Indian WFOE)

Maxcess International (American WFOE)

Caretek (China) Medical Devices Co., Ltd (Australian WFOE)

Barcol-Air Environmental Systems (Foshan) Co., Ltd

Superdata Software Technology (Guangzhou) Limited

Hitachi Elevator Electric Machine (Guangzhou) Co., Ltd. (Sino-Japanese JV)

Honda Motor Products (Guangdong) Co., Ltd. (Sino-Japanese JV)

* Note:for instance, The European Union Chamber of Commerce in China in its Position Papers argues that the requirement on core IP may create an uneven playing field between domestic and international companies. This would be because the main technologies of the Chinese affiliates of foreign companies in part may still rely on the main technologies and products initially developed outside China and is still owned there, despite these companies now playing an increasingly important role in the Chinese innovation ecosystem.

Amunicipal-levelHNTE status also exist in Shenzhen.Applications are managed entirely by the municipal government, given the citys classification as city under separate state planning. Individual calls for applications are published on the website of theShenzhen Municipal Science, Technology and Innovation Commission.

TheTechnology Advanced Service Enterprise (TASE)status () is of Chinas core innovation tax policies, specifically targeting enterprises offering technology outsourcing services. The benefits derived from the TASE status are similar to those of the High- and New-Technology Enterprise, but at the same time the requirements for the obtainment of such status are perceived to be easier to meet for foreign-invest enterprises as these do not involve the possession of local IP rights.

According to theNotice on Expanding Nation-wide Corporate Income Tax Policies for Technology Advanced Service Enterprises, TASE status is granted to enterprises which meet the following requirements:

Independent legal personality in the jurisdiction through which the application is submitted (in this case in Guangdong province)

Be operating in one or more technology services included in a Catalogue appended to the Notice. Income in these services should exceed 50% of the total enterprises income

Over 50% of the staff should possess at least an associate college degree;

Revenue from the qualifying offshore outsourcing services

should account for no less than 35% of total revenue of the year.

* The term Revenue derived from offshore outsourcing services refers to revenue derived by a TASE or its direct subcontractor under an outsourcing services agreement entered into by the TASE and an overseas entity, for the provision of ITO, BPO and KPO services as prescribed in list of qualifying technology advanced services.

Reduction of the Corporate Income Tax (CIT) to 15%, compared to the 25% statutory rate

Expenditure for the training and education of personnel, are deductible from their taxable income for a maximum of 8% of the personnels salary amount, compared to the 2.5% statutory rate; the part exceeding 8% can be deducted in the next fiscal year.

Once approved, TASEs will need to take part to annual evaluations.

When and where are application calls published?

Applications can be submitted after an official announcement is published on the web portal of the Guangdong Provincial Department of Science and Technology, usually every year in the summer.

International participation: figures and opportunities

The TASE status isperceived to be easier to obtain for foreign-invested enterprises, as it does not require the enterprise to own local IP rights of the key technologies representing the enterprises core products or services (unlike HNTE status). The percentage of international enterprises among TASEs in other areas such as Shanghai, Beijing and Tianjin is very high, around 30%-40% of the total.

In Guangdong province, 3 out of 20 new TASEs recognised in 2018 were wholly foreign-owned enterprises: Clarks (Dongguan) Footwear Service Co., Ltd. (UK WFOE); SPIN MASTER (Dongguan) Toys Co., Ltd (Canadian WFOE); and AxiSoft (Zhuhai) Co., Ltd. (HK WFOE).
