Legal finance requirements

In China, companies must comply with Chinese GAAP, even though their headquarters may be operating in accordance with HGB, IAS or IFRS. Local Chinese finance requirements include:

  • Chinese User Interface
  • Account Tree Structure
  • The account code must be consistent with the standard issued by the Treasury Department
  • There must be an account description in Chinese
  • Chinese Voucher System
  • Show Negative Credits and Debits
  • Copy and Reverse the Voucher
  • Journal Approval
  • Month-end Closing (Validity check)
  • Financial Ledger Inquiries
  • Financial Reports
  • Bank Reconciliation

Legally required reports include the "Balance Sheet," "Profit & Loss Statement," and the "Cash Flow Statement." Other reports such as the "Fixed Asset & Depreciation Report," "Foreign Currency Statement," "Bank Accounts Balance Report "or the "Monthly Pay-in & Pay-out Report" may also be required depending on the specific scenario.

Fixed asset management

The official principle of fixed asset depreciation is different according to China GAAP, and includes a choice of fixed asset depreciation method, depreciation year, and scrap value. The system must handle both the requirements of subsidiaries and headquarters.

Golden Tax System

China government requires all VAT invoices are issued through the Golden Tax system (GTS). Government certified tax software calculates VAT and prints official VAT invoices based on national taxation law. So the interface between ERP and GTS is necessary if large amount of invoice per month, to avoid manual typing errors and improve efficiency.

Management culture

They do more than provide training and training materials in Chinese. Our experts can configure the system to comply with international standards and support flexible local business processes.
