Chen Bin, a senior accountant and Chinese certified tax agent and an expert on taxation and finance, lectured to professional accounting and auditing majors on how to avoid tax-related risks after the government’s complete implementation of the “Change From Business Tax to Value-Added Tax” policy in JNU’s Academic Hall on Oct. 22. Part of the “Financial Lecture Series,” the lecture was hosted by JNU’s Department of Accounting in Management School and the Education Center for Master of Professional Accounting (MPAcc); it was co-sponsored by the Institute of Guangdong Accountants and the Representative Office of Guangzhou for Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). Zhu Tao, an associate professor in the Education Center for MPAcc, officiated at the lecture, attended by over 100 students and teachers from the Department of Accounting.

Chen’s lecture presented his thoughts from six different angles: the policy’s impact on the social economy from the career perspective; the history of VAT and the reasons for the change from the perspective of “learning from Luxun”; his understanding of the series of documents related to the change from the perspective of “learning from Mu Guiying”; good and bad results of the change from the perspective of storytelling; the bug fixes and upgrading of the change from the perspective of software engineers; and his expectations for the change from the perspective of an economist.

The students actively asked questions and became involved in the discussion during the Q&A session. Associate Professor Zhu gave a brief conclusion.
