Explanation for Differences in Corporate Income Tax and Effective Tax Rates

The Group has implemented tax procedures to ensure compliance with relevant laws. In 2022, the corporate income tax rate for the Group was 23%, falling within the range of 17% to 25% applicable to the Group. This variation in tax rates is due to the Group receiving tax privileges in various sectors. However, it’s important to note that not all expenses incurred can be classified as tax expenses, primarily stemming from differences in accounting methods compared to those used for taxation purposes.
