On April 1, the environmental tax will usher in the first levy. At present, tax authorities across the country have identified and identified more than 260,000 taxpayers for environmental protection taxes.
The introduction of environmental taxes has a profound impact on the ceramic sanitary ware industry.

According to an earlier analysis, the impact of the previous sewage charges on the operating costs and profits of the enterprises was not significant, but the implementation of the environmental taxes will allow companies to directly discharge the tax cost higher than the pollution control costs and increase operating costs.
Some upstream companies have stated that the collection of environmental taxes will inevitably increase the company's costs, and that the increase in costs will mean various price increases. Industry sources said that after the introduction of the environmental tax, the company’s cost will increase by 15% in the short term. The worry is that these costs may eventually be reflected in the terminal prices of bathroom products. It is expected that from April 1st onwards, the decoration market cost will increase by 20%-35%.
