Most provinces in China like Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and Hunan require expats to submit their IIT record report in the applying process of work permit extension. If your actual salary level in IIT record report shows any unconformity with the one you submitted in the system, we strongly advise you to deal with the IIT first.
Due to the authority needs 2-4 weeks to process your work permit extension, we thus advise you to start your extension application process 2-3 months earlier before work permit expiration.
(The applicant of Appointment / Accreditation from International company can be exempted)

However, IIT record report in megacities like Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen is not a must-have file in the extension applying process, only except some unusual situations.
Since work permit and VISA policies in China are still in development and betterment, there is a possibility in the upcoming future that all these megacities will list IIT record report as a necessity to apply for a work permit.
If you have a good IIT history, then the immigration department probably permits you three/five-year stay in China. For expats who have paid IIT 12,000RMB(about 1,500 US dollar) per month for over four years, then he or she has the qualification to apply for permanent residence in China.
China recently has launched a 183-day tax rule which stipulates that expats who, with business VISA and other types of VISA, have personal incomes and stayed in China for more than 183 days, then they will be taxed.
