As the global tax landscape continues to develop, multinational taxpayers can expect ongoing scrutiny of their cross-border transactions. It used to be said that the biggest challenges to doing business in China were language, culture, and the sheer scale of the market. Now, throw in the rapid pace of change.
A raft of changes to regulations and tax have been introduced by the Chinese government. E-commerce is also evolving at a pace never seen before, and New Zealand’s access to online channels have never been easier.
Join us at a Seminar tackling these issues and more with guest speaker Russell Brown from an international accounting firm in Beijing, China, and our very own tax specialist Richard Ashby, partner at Gilligan Sheppard. Topics to be covered include;
- Asia Economic Overview
- Setup Considerations
- Tax Environment
- Business Risk Areas in China
- Foreign Currency Repatriation
- Key HR Considerations
- Common Reporting Standard Compliance
Monday 27th March 2017
3-5pm with networking afterwards
128 Albert Street, Auckland
Please RSVP by Monday 20th March
