China has been letting technology companies run on their own for some time, but now the government is starting to reign them in. Begining in 2020, it started to introduce stricter regulations for these types of business.

Some of the changes include reduced fees for users that could end up impacting earnings reports. We’re going to see if that’s the case soon as some of the biggest tech companies in the country prepare to release earnings reports, Bloomberg notes.

Included in today’s news are checks for Jack Ma’s Ant. These checks are coming at the request of the Chinese government and seek to sniff out ties to Ant. This comes after an IPO for Ant was rejected in late 2020 by regulators.
