Chinese corporate law, financing and taxation regimes constantly undergo revision. The situation of today may be not be applicable tomorrow and therefore every foreign company needs to continually adapt. They must conduct detailed research and forward-planning of their business models, investment vehicles and taxation consequences. They must consider the impact of import duty, logistics, customs and VAT procedures in an optimal way when doing any kind of business in China.

Great savings can be achieved with careful planning and research – in the worst-case, improperly planned China operations can wreck company operations completely.
