Expanding in China? Optimizing your corporate structure from a legal, tax and financial perspective, and how to benefit from liberalization trends like the Shanghai FTZ
The European Chamber is pleased to invite you to the event Seminar on Expanding in China? Optimizing your corporate structure from a legal, tax and financial perspective, and how to benefit from liberalization trends.
As China liberalizes there are increasing opportunities to optimize your corporate structure while expanding operations in China. We explain how "old-fashioned" structures (e.g. multiple rep offices) are rapidly being replaced, and how to choose between various legal entities (holding company, WFOE, branch, subsidiary, rep office). We use practical case studies to explain the main legal, tax and financial implications, including registered capital, cash-flow and VAT issues, and how to efficiently hire employees throughout China. New trends, like the Shanghai FTZ and recent company law amendments, provide further opportunities to optimize your corporate structure.
