Netease Finance, Netease’s financial news aggregator, published a rectification notice that it would cease to update after Tuesday noon due to serious mistakes that were made while NetEase operated its finance channel. The channel said it would carry out thorough rectifications across the platform and build a “clear and honest” cyberspace.

The notice didn’t specify the cause of the rectification nor the closing date.

Online speculations are saying the rectification was due to an article by NetEase Research Institute (网易研究局), discussing individual income tax reform. NetEase Research Institute is a think-tank under NetEase news and focuses on China’s financial and economic news.
