Beijing, China – July 17, 2012

News Facts

· Jiangsu State Administration of Taxation (JSAT) has adopted Oracle Policy Automation, the world’s leading application in building an intelligent tax policy advice system. Jiangsu’s new tax system will provide taxpayers with accurate, consistent and clear tax advice services. Already, the new system has enabled the JSAT to improve its efficiency, reduce taxation costs and take its IT-based tax services to a whole new level.

· JSAT has 80 city-level units and 475 branches. The organization is responsible for collecting central government taxes, and taxes shared between the central and local governments, including value-added, consumption, finance and insurance, corporate income and vehicle purchase taxes. The organization is also responsible for refunding export taxes.

· As China’s market economy rapidly develops, revenue agencies must increasingly satisfy the growing requirements of taxpayers. Accordingly, JSAT has adopted Oracle’s new intelligent tax policy advice system to meet the current and future goals of its strategic development plan.

· After an extensive evaluation of the products available in the market, JSAT finally chose to build its intelligent tax policy advice system upon Oracle Policy Automation, a system that has been successfully implemented across industries worldwide. JSAT, however, is the first organization that has adopted Oracle Policy Automation in China. With the support of Oracle and its business partner, Beijing IT Technology Co., Ltd., Jiangsu’s intelligent tax policy advice system was completed and went live in May 2012. To date, the service has run smoothly.

· The Oracle Policy Automation based intelligent tax policy advice system currently provides online information to taxpayers. The online system showcases 110 hot topics classified into seven categories: value-added, consumption, corporate income, non-resident, vehicle purchase taxes, export tax rebate and taxation-related management. Further, taxpayers can enter questions into the system and receive authoritative, consistent and clear answers to their inquiries.

· Oracle Policy Automation allows JSAT to more easily manage its taxation policy and continuously improve the functionality of the advice system according to changes in its taxpayers’ needs and taxation policy. Moreover, the system provides a self-service function to increase user satisfaction and lower taxation costs.
