The Chinese e-invoicing pilot program, which has gradually been expanded in its new form since January 2021, has now welcomed a new batch of cities into the program. The updated version of the Chinese CTC e-invoicing pilot program, which is intended to allow businesses to issue e-invoices as well as to receive and verify them through the same platform, has been both upgraded and simplified compared to its earlier version and several of the previously burdensome hardware requirements have been removed from the CTC workflow.

Designated companies in Shanghai, Foshan, Guangzhou, Hohhot and the Guangdong-Macao Cooperation Zone, will be invited to implement and test the pilot program starting in December 2021, according to recent announcements from the tax administrations in these areas.
