China’s “super app” WeChat now supports personal and corporate tax payments, as private enterprises and the Chinese government push to digitize public services, reports Tencent Tech.

Pilot programs, backed by China’s central bank and tax administration, have been rolled out in the provinces of Hunan, Fujian, Henan, as well as the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao.

After declaring their tax online or offline, taxpayers can use WeChat to scan a QR code generated by the tax department to make a payment. The process can be completed online or at a tax office.
