The Tax Department of Professional Practice (Tax DPP) is KPMG China’s national tax technical and policy unit. The Tax DPP drives the firm’s brand and profile building efforts, provides consultation to client teams on complex and high risk tax matters, maintains a firmwide platform for knowledge and experience sharing and centrally manages the firm’s policy-related work with Chinese government authorities. These efforts support client-facing teams to win work and facilitate their collaboration and pooling of experience so that they can deliver consistently high quality to clients.

The Tax DPP staff, located in Beijing and across China, run several complementary work streams, in particular:

Policy work

Tax DPP staff provide policy research support to national and regional government bodies in China while also helping to enhance client team understanding of the direction of important tax policy developments.

Thought leadership

A wide range of KPMG China and third-party tax publications are coordinated and produced by Tax DPP staff, drawing on specialist staff from around the firm.


Tax DPP staff provide consultation support to client teams directly and via specialist tax partner panels, focusing on tax engagements with the following hallmarks:

  • High technical complexity
  • Significant uncertainty or contentiousness
  • Engagement outputs put to public use
  • Novelty and untested nature of issue 

Tax knowledge management

Our in-house developed KPMG Insight Sharing System (KISS) is maintained and populated by Tax DPP staff, allowing client-facing staff to draw on the wealth of accumulated firm experience and collaborate effectively across teams to service client needs.
