Comparision among major jurisdictions:

With its accession to the World Trade Organisation (WTO), China has strengthened its roles of manufacturing base and consumer market, thus attracting ever greater attention from overseas investors considering China company formation.

Nevertheless, China is still a place with both opportunities and risks in the eyes of most investors due to factors such as political and cultural backgrounds.

In order to facilitate our clients' needs to develop their business in China, Accolade established its office in Shenzhen and Beijing China years, which has brought us in-depth understanding of Chinese policies, economy, tax system and so on. Through our Chinese advisory group, we can provide practical and feasible proposals for investors regarding China company formation to minimize the future risks to our clients.
