PRC taxes & lies
Those three words have different semiotics than that which you might believe they mean for a UK or US jurisdiction
Having worked with a couple of Western companies to try and recover they records in Guangdong province after the tax authorities asked for some money my experience is its easier to admit to a specious accusation, pay the money and move on
The people doing the asking were smart enough to ask for an amount that was payable without hurting too much
And to the idiot at the top of this comment column - grow up, get out and experience the world more.
