An Introduction to Doing Business in China 2012


With little to no growth in many western nations and the pull of Chinese domestic consumption, the profile of companies investing in China is indeed expanding. China is now experiencing a “second wave” of foreign investment – while the first wave was primarily from big multinationals, the second wave brings with it greater quantities of foreign investment from SMEs.

This publication is designed to introduce the fundamentals of investing in China to everyone considering investing in the opportunities this rising nation presents. Roughly 35 pages, it is divided into three chapters and broken down by common investor questions.
1. Establishing and Running a Business
What are my options for investment?
How do I establish a company?
How do I make changes to my company?
What do I need to keep in mind when doing business in China?
2. Tax and Accounting
What are China’s major taxes?
What are some of the key compliance requirements?
3. Human Resources and Payroll
How do I hire staff/workers?
What major legal obligations does a company have for its staff/workers?
The content of this guide is based on the knowledge of Dezan Shira & Associates, a specialist foreign direct investment practice, providing corporate establishment, business advisory, tax advisory and compliance, accounting, payroll, due diligence and financial review services to multinationals investing in emerging Asia.
