Seminar | Thursday, August 24, 2023 | 2:30 - 5:30 PM

Join us for our upcoming "AHK IGNITE Event" in Foshan on August 24th, 2023, where we explore the exciting topic of "Beyond Tax Reduction: Unlocking Better Subsidies and Support for Innovation and Growth in China". 

Ignite and delve into the world of negotiating and receiving better subsidies and support from local governments and industry parks for your innovation and research and development activities in China. We want to look beyond the common IIT (Individual income tax) , CIT (Corporate income tax) and VAT exemption that we are all familiar with and have invited two expert speakers who will guide you through lesser-known subsidies and negotiation strategies, equipping you with the tools to ask for the right support and matching subsidies.  

Don't miss out on this opportunity to exchange experiences and gain new insights about research grants and latest Super-Deduction on R&D expenses in China. Accelerate your innovation capabilities with new innovation subsidies and keep growing your business in the competitive Chinese market.  

Join us for a day packed with valuable information and networking opportunities. Sign up now to secure your spot! 

Key Topics:

  • Available subsidies options for SMEs planning to open a new factory or expand operations.
  • Special subsidy options available for innovative companies engaged in R&D activities.
  • Support options for purchasing new machines, modernizing manufacturing (from manual assembling to automated), or adding ESG tracking hardware.
  • Strategies for negotiating cash subsidies and cheaper loans from local banks.
