* Note: The decrease in revenue in 2021 compared to the revenue in 2019 will not prevail as a criterion for reduction of paying corporate income tax if the taxpayer has just been established, engaged in consolidation, merger, partial division, or full division in the tax period of 2020 or 2021.

(2) Exemption of late payment interest incurred in 2020 and 2021 on debts of taxes, land use levies, and land rents to enterprises and organizations (including affiliated entities, places of business) that incur losses in 2020.
* Note: This provision does not apply to a case where the late payment interest has been paid.
