In Guangdong, blockchain tax-related applications have been extended to many areas such as restaurants, parking lots, public transportation, equity transfers, and export tax rebates.

Blockchain electronic invoices are used in multiple scenarios
Beginning in June 2018, the Guangzhou Taxation Bureau began to explore the application of blockchain technology in the field of taxation. At present, the “Tax Chain” blockchain electronic invoice platform has been applied throughout the city, and it has been implemented in Alipay, Dingding and other networks. Platform, catering, parking services, e-commerce, property, subway and other fields for scenario applications.
In the Huachenghui parking lot in Guangzhou’s large commercial center, there are a total of 1,880 parking spaces. The parking lot has a large daily traffic flow. The reporter saw at the scene that when the car owner drove away, he could independently issue an electronic invoice after paying the toll online through his mobile phone, and truly experience senseless parking.
Yang Zhonghe, head of Huachenghui parking lot, told reporters that the parking lot started to implement the “Tax Chain” blockchain electronic invoice platform in April 2019. “We have 13 garages in the parking lot. Each garage is independent and there is no connection between them. In the past, we used to collect fees manually from various guards, and issued machine-printed or hand-tipped invoices to car owners. After the promotion of blockchain electronic invoices , Which saves labor costs, and at the same time improves the efficiency of vehicle traffic.”
On Jiaochang East Road, Yuexiu District, Guangzhou, many vehicles are parked in temporary parking spaces on the side of the road. When the car owners leave, they can issue electronic invoices through their mobile phones. It is understood that from January 14, 2021, the Guangzhou Transportation Bureau has begun to implement blockchain electronic invoices in temporary berths on urban roads in the central six districts.
According to Lu Wenfeng, head of the Static Second Division of the Guangzhou Municipal Affairs Road Center, there is a high-level video on this section. The car owner will automatically record the license plate and parking time after entering the venue. When the vehicle leaves, the payment order will be automatically generated. The owner can complete the payment online and issue an electronic invoice. .
Li Han, the first-level chief officer of the Information Center of the Guangzhou Taxation Bureau, told reporters that fixed-value invoices need to be printed and kept by enterprises themselves, and value-added tax electronic invoices also need tax control equipment to generate invoice passwords. Blockchain technology has broken through the requirements of traditional invoices for clients and tax control devices, and enterprises no longer need to collect invoices and inspect the old manually. In addition, blockchain electronic invoices no longer restrict the number of tickets and the amount of tickets, and can be combined with payment platforms and order platforms to effectively avoid the risks of false invoices, false invoices, multiple reports, and false claims.
As of July 18, 2021, Guangzhou parking lots have issued nearly 500,000 blockchain electronic invoices.
“The characteristics of non-tampering and decentralization of the blockchain are in line with tax application logic. For example, all information on the blockchain is encrypted and transmitted using asymmetric encryption technology, and cannot be easily tampered with. It will record every The modification process of a transaction can therefore be traceable, checkable, verifiable, credible, and controllable.” Zhong Wenxin said.
Guangzhou car owners are issuing electronic invoices independently
In addition to being non-tamperable, the characteristics of blockchain smart contracts enable government departments to not only realize simple data sharing, but also set more complex rules, which are automatically and autonomously executed by smart contracts, which greatly expands the application possibilities sex.
In July of this year, the Guangzhou Municipal Taxation Bureau, together with the Guangzhou Municipal Market Supervision Administration and the Guangzhou Municipal Service Data Administration, innovatively launched the “blockchain + equity transfer” application, which realized the “declaration of tax payment-data on the chain-intelligent review-equity Change-follow-up management” cross-departmental, full-process real-time business flow on the chain.
The reporter learned that taxpayers handle business through the new model of “blockchain + equity transfer “. After the tax authorities pay taxes, they can directly complete the entire equity transfer change related process online, without having to go to the front desk of the market supervision and management department to be cumbersome. The processing time for the whole process has been shortened by nearly 60%.
Guangzhou Yingke Information Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Yingke Technology”) is one of the first companies to adopt “blockchain + equity transfer”. In August of this year, Yingke Technology had a shareholding change, and it was decided to transfer part of the company’s equity held by the legal person Lin Changheng to Shenzhen Qianhai Youpin Youju Network Technology Co., Ltd.
Cao Wen, the relevant person in charge of Yingke Technology, introduced that in the past, when companies made equity changes, they usually needed to send mails to Beijing, Shanghai and other branches for shareholders to sign on paper materials. “After all the materials are ready, we have to go through the relevant procedures with the tax bureau and the market supervision bureau. Now, after the tax payment certificate is processed at the tax bureau, the shareholder information change can be completed online.”
Zhong Wenxin told reporters that after the tax department has accepted the individual income tax declaration for equity transfer, the relevant information will be automatically collected and uploaded to the chain. The market supervision and management department will obtain tax payment information on the chain in real time, pass the verification and complete the equity change business, and then automatically change the result of the equity change. Real-time return on the chain.
” ‘Blockchain + equity transfer’ involves three departments. In the past, the data of any department was not updated in time, which would cause misjudgment of the audit. Now, with the help of blockchain technology, each government department directly uploads the data to the chain, which government department It needs to be reviewed and the information can be obtained directly on the platform. Since any change is recorded, this has established trust among government departments. ” Zhong Wenxin said.
As of August 31, Guangzhou has accumulated 187,000 individual tax payment certificates on the chain, and received 108,000 changes of shareholder equity from the market supervision department from the chain, effectively solving the taxation department’s inability to obtain taxpayers in follow-up management. The issue of the detailed data of the equity change.
It is worth mentioning that recently, the Guangzhou and Shenzhen cities jointly issued the first cross-regional “Certificate of Export Goods Agent” based on blockchain technology in the country, marking the first time that blockchain technology has been used in the field of domestic export tax rebates. Achieve cross-regional breakthroughs, and promote the “blockchain + export tax rebate” business to take an important step towards national interconnection.
Ma Weisheng, Director of the Second Taxation Branch of the Guangdong Provincial Taxation Bureau, said: “Before the “Proof of Exported Goods Acting” and “Proof of Entrusted Exported Goods” involved multiple parties, it was difficult to accurately grasp the processing progress and transmission timeliness in a timely and accurate manner. The entrusted party, the entrusting party and the competent tax authority It often takes a lot of time to communicate with each other, which affects the efficiency of export tax rebate declaration. This cross-regional breakthrough in the “blockchain + export tax rebate” business has effectively opened up the security and timeliness of data sharing between different regions Blocking point in between.”
It is understood that the export tax rebate is empowered by blockchain technology, and real-time and accurate transmission of information and data between tax authorities is realized. When there is no doubt in the data review, the enterprise can declare on the same day and complete the tax refund review on the same day.
