Our China business advisory service will help you to
Establish operations in China
Before a business is set up in China, we conduct feasibility studies to determine whether a representative office (RO), Wholly foreign owned enterprises (WFOE) or joint venture (JV) is most suitable. We also guide clients in the preparation of necessary documentation for government approval, business registration and licensing, and assist clients to understand the procedures and administration of payroll in compliance with local reporting requirements, and meet local social security and retirement scheme requirements.
Recruit local staff
We assist clients to find, screen and interview candidates with the skills, experience and aptitude to fit specific roles. During the probationary period, we monitor candidates’ performance to assess their compatibility and potential.
Implement and maintain sound of accounting systems
With a thorough understanding of accounting methods practised in China and international markets, we set up and maintain efficient accounting systems for our clients’ China operations. This extends to preparing annual and periodic accounts, financial reports and consolidated accounts. We also provide consultations on local practices in China and offer training for mainland-based staff on the International Financial Reporting Standards and computerized accounting systems.
