Apple has removed 46 thousand applications from the Chinese App Store

By information Reuters, Dec 31, 2020 Apple removed 39,000 game apps from the Chinese App Store. In addition to games, the company removed more than 7,000 other applications. The developers and publishers of these programs have not received licenses from local authorities. This is the biggest cleanup the company has done in its app store at a time.

Apple has removed the bulk of the top paid games in the Chinese App Store. For example, Assassin’s Creed Identity and NBA 2K20 have been removed. In fact, of the 1,500 popular revenue generating apps, 74 remain.

A spokesperson for AppInChina, a company that helps overseas companies distribute their apps to the local market, explained that China issued very few licenses for foreign games in 2020. This is likely to cause most game developers to switch to the in-ad model for their Chinese versions.

Mobile app developers who release their products to the Chinese market are required to obtain a license from the country’s National Printing and Publishing Administration. Until July 2020, almost all applications were published in the Chinese AppStore without checking this license. Since mid-summer last year, Apple has begun to enforce the new rules in China. The company has given developers and publishers a time limit to obtain the necessary state licenses for their applications by the end of the year.

Early July Apple has suspended updates of thousands of game apps in the Chinese App Store because the developers did not have the required Chinese licenses.

In mid-July, Apple removed 2,500 games from the Chinese AppStore due to a lack of local licenses.

The EU plans to reduce the hole in the budget through taxes on crypto companies

The EU plans to reduce the hole in the budget

The European Commission’s proposal to tax cryptocurrencies, which could be passed as early as this week, suggests that taxes on cryptoassets will help raise up to an additional 2.4 billion euros ($2.5 billion). The proposal, which the Commission plans to adopt this week, purports to close the “regulation gap” and eliminate tax evasion opportunities for crypto investors, as well as ensure that EU member states avoid budget deficits due to low tax collection.

The EU plans to reduce the hole in the budget through taxes on crypto companies

Crypto service providers in the EU will have to report to national tax authorities, according to the draft, which defines crypto assets as “issued in a decentralized manner, as well as stablecoins and certain non-functional tokens.” For the rules to apply, the crypto asset must be used as a means of payment or investment, with possible exceptions for “restricted network and certain utility tokens” (whatever that means).

A European Commission spokesman told The Block he could not confirm or deny any of the details in the document.

Defining a taxable event in the cryptocurrency markets is likely to remain challenging as negotiations over the proposal develop within the EU institutions. However, by specifying service providers in the directive, the authorities will have easier access to the necessary information about users of cryptocurrencies, as the Commission seeks to minimize the “administrative burden” for the industry.

Since the proposal is a directive and not a regulation (as is the case with tax matters in the EU), Member States will be free to decide how to implement the provisions. It also complies with internationally recognized reporting standards for the taxation of cryptocurrencies, as defined in a report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development published in October this year.

The draft proposal includes crypto assets in a series of EU directives on administrative cooperation, which describe how member states should communicate and exchange certain information among themselves for tax purposes. Since direct taxation policies have not yet been harmonized across the economic bloc, tax reporting directives make it harder for citizens to evade taxes in other countries.

The document indicates that some rules will begin to apply as early as 2025, and most will come into force in 2026.
