Special Industries and Activities

Companies engaged in upstream oil and gas and geothermal industries typically have to calculate CIT in accordance with their production sharing contracts (PSCs). Certain companies engaged in metal, mineral and coal mining are governed by a contract of work (CoW) for the CIT calculation. Different provisions may apply to them pertaining to corporate tax rates, deductible expenses and how to calculate taxable income.
Such contractual-based concessions are no longer available to new mining projects since the enactment of the Mining Law in 2009. The Mining Law stipulates that general prevailing tax laws/regulations apply to mining projects, and hence any tax facilities should be provided accordingly, except as otherwise stated in a particular mining license.
