Dezan Shira Seminar: Business Restructuring in China


Problems with a foreign entity’s business can occur in China suddenly and for a variety of reasons. Labor costs may increase, tax incentives can be removed, and the way in which foreign investment is treated in a particular industry can be altered. Decisive action is the most effective solution for companies encountering these kind of problems in China, While de-registration and de-establishment is a common and, at times, correct course of action for a foreign entity to take, there are also a number of other available options that might better suit a company’s individual situation. These include temporary dormancy, business conversion, and company divestiture.

Even if your company is not considering any kind of restructuring, the concepts addressed in this seminar should be of interest to anyone managing a foreign-invested business in China today.

Dezan Shira & Associates therefore invites you to a seminar: Business Restructuring in China. The seminar will be held on Friday November 4th from 4:30pm to 6:00pm at the Shangri La Hotel, Dalian.  The event has been scheduled immediately before the annual Charity Ball (also held at the Shangri La Hotel) for the convenience of potential participants.
