Webinar – China 101 – Doing business in China? Your questions about setting up, taxation, and HR answered – PART 2

Date: Tuesday 1st June 2021


In our previous webinar, we addressed a number of interesting questions from companies that want to or are already doing business in China. The issues we covered included set-up locations, virtual offices, registered capital injections and others; in fact, there were so many questions that we didn’t have time to explore them all in the allotted time. We are therefore going to host a second webinar, on 1 June, to tackle some more of the issues about setting up and doing business in China. Welcome to ‘Frequently Asked Questions ¬¬– Part 2’

The issues we expect to discuss include:

  • How does corporate taxation work in China?
  • Can I hire overseas staff?
  • Can I use an oversea bank in China or can I control an account from abroad?
  • Is it possible or practical to apply global company policies to employees in China?

If you have any set-up, tax, HR or other operational questions about entering or conducting business in the China market, this webinar is for you. You can prepare and submit your questions via the ‘Chat Button’ function during the webinar or submit them in advance following registration.
