China's fiscal revenue in 2007 hit 5.13 trillion yuan (US$733 billion), an increase of 1.25 trillion yuan, or 32.4 percent year on year, Ministry of Finance figures show.

Tax income, the major source of revenue, stood at 4.56 trillion yuan, an increase of 1.15 trillion yuan, or 33.7 percent, over the previous year. It accounted for 88.9 percent of the total fiscal revenue.

Non-tax revenue contributed 569.1 billion yuan, a rise of 105.67 billion yuan, or 22.8 percent, year on year, and accounted for 11.1 percent of the total revenue.

Analysts attributed the rapid tax revenue increase to huge real estate investment, the speedy development of industrial and commercial sectors, the hefty economic returns of enterprises and active stock exchange transactions.

Income tax from enterprises, the second biggest revenue source, was 876.95 billion yuan, an increase of 37.9 percent over the previous year. It accounted for 19.2 percent of total tax revenue.

Tax from the refined oil industry, telecom equipment producers, the construction material sector and breweries saw significant yearly increases of 173.1 percent, 99.7 percent, 60.3 percent and 52.1 percent, respectively.

Analysts attributed the significant growth to the greatly improved economy efficiency of industrial enterprises.

Profit of large scale Chinese enterprises increased 36.7 percent in the first 11 months of 2007. The insurance sector, for instance, saw its profits increase by 353 percent.

Value-added tax (VAT) revenue hit 1.55 trillion yuan, a rise of 21 percent over the previous year. Industrial sectors, including refined oil, telecom equipment, nonferrous metal and construction materials, saw especially rapid growth.

Consumption tax, one of the major revenue categories, reached 220.69 billion yuan last year, an increase of 17 percent over 2006. It accounted for 4.8 percent of total revenue.

Since 1994, China has levied a consumption tax on specific goods. Included were cigarettes, alcohol, motorbikes, cosmetics, automobiles, fireworks and high-grade watches.
