Li Keqiang said that large-scale tax reduction and fee reduction is a key measure of macro-control. Under the strong leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core, In recent years, faced with the huge impact of complicated and severe domestic and international environment, especially epidemic situation, We fully implement the new development concept, Innovate macro-control methods, Taking the promotion of large-scale tax reduction and fee reduction as the "first move", since the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan", the accumulated tax reduction and fee reduction has exceeded 8.6 trillion yuan, which has reduced government expenditure while relieving market players, and has been promoted simultaneously with reforms such as "distribution suits", which has greatly stimulated the vitality of market players, promoted the expansion of consumption and effective investment, and promoted steady growth, employment protection and inflation prevention. Practice has proved that tax reduction and fee reduction is the most beneficial policy for enterprises, which plays a key role in coping with difficulties and challenges and keeping economic operation in a reasonable range.

 

Li Keqiang pointed out that tax reduction and fee reduction highlight support for manufacturing upgrading, small and medium-sized enterprises and individual industrial and commercial households with large quantity and large employment absorption, and realize the close connection between macro policies and micro subjects. While reforming and perfecting the value-added tax system and implementing institutional tax reduction such as adding and deducting R&D expenses, measures such as phased reduction and exemption of social security premiums are also implemented, which not only helps market players to reduce their burdens, but also promotes innovation and industrial upgrading. Guide financial institutions and some natural monopoly industries to make reasonable profits to market players. Establish a direct mechanism of financial funds to support local governments in implementing tax reduction and fee reduction policies. Tax reduction and fee reduction have spawned a large number of market players, and the tax payment of newly added market players has increased year by year, which has played a role in cultivating tax sources and expanding tax base, and realized a virtuous circle of "releasing water to raise fish" and "more water and more fish".

 

Li Keqiang said that due to the influence of multiple international and domestic factors, China's economy is under new downward pressure. It is necessary to strengthen cross-cycle adjustment, continue to do a good job of "six guarantees" and "six guarantees", and pay close attention to implementing new and greater combined tax reduction and fee reduction according to the needs of market players, so as to ensure a smooth start of the economy in the first quarter and stabilize the macroeconomic market. It is necessary to continue to implement the tax reduction and fee reduction measures to support small and micro enterprises and individual industrial and commercial households due at the end of 2021. Improve the policy of adding and deducting R&D expenses, increase the VAT allowance and tax refund, and promote the scientific and technological innovation and renovation of manufacturing enterprises. In view of the special difficult industries such as service industry, which is seriously affected by the epidemic and has large employment capacity, we will study the tax reduction and fee reduction measures with precise assistance. Adhere to the government's tight life, in exchange for the overall stability of market players. The state will continue to increase transfer payments to local governments, push financial resources to sink to the grassroots level of cities and counties, and provide guarantee for tax reduction and fee reduction. All localities should also come up with their own measures. At the same time, we must resolutely crack down on tax evasion and fraud, and resolutely stop arbitrary charges.

 

Li Keqiang pointed out that all localities and departments should adhere to the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, implement the decision-making arrangements of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, take the lead in stabilizing words, strive for progress while maintaining stability, and do a solid job to promote sustained and healthy economic development.
