Asia Briefing’s new report touches on everything you need to know about doing business in China, and is now available as a complimentary PDF download!

Jun. 13 – Asia Briefing, in cooperation with its parent firm Dezan Shira & Associates, has just released a new 40-page report introducing everything that a foreign investor should be familiar with when establishing and operating a business in China. This guide, titled “An Introduction to Doing Business in China,” is immediately available as a complimentary PDF download on the Asia Briefing Bookstore.

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 small and medium-sized enterprises.

This publication is designed to introduce the fundamentals of investing in China to everyone considering investing in the opportunities this rising nation presents. As such, it is divided into three chapters and broken down by common investor questions, which can be seen below.

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?

“An Introduction to Doing Business in China” is out now and immediately available as a complimentary PDF download on the Asia Briefing Bookstore.
