Sanya cracks down on issuing of illegal receipts across the city
The Sanya Police Bureau has teamed up with local tax authorities to launch a 7-month crackdown on the issuance of illegal receipts throughout the city from April 16th onwards.
The campaign mainly targets the catering and entertainment sectors which either refuse to provide receipts, or provide fake ones, to consumers.
Authorities also carried out new rules, which will take effect on May 1st, 2013, to fine the units deliberately violating related laws and offering rewards for providing information related to invoice fraud.
According to the new rules, a fine will be issued ranging from 2,000 yuan to 500,000 yuan. Besides, any individual who has received a fake receipt will receive rewards between 200 yuan and 1,000 yuan.
Consumers can call 12366 or the government hotline 12345 designed for public supervision.
