Dezan Shira & Associates is a multi-disciplinary professional services firm operating throughout the Asia-pacific (APAC) region providing tax, legal, audit, accounting and advisory services. Beginning life in Hong Kong and Shenzhen in 1992, we have grown over the past quarter century to have over 20 offices and several hundred staff across the region and also work closely with our alliance partners in the EU and USA.

Of the total foreign investment we have facilitated over the years, a significant and valuable proportion - some AUD$260 million - has been from Australian businesses, making Dezan Shira & Associates a long term, proven, and trusted advisor to Australian companies and individuals.

We are members of numerous Australian-focused organisations throughout Asia and have long lasting relationships with other Australian institutional entities operating in the region. These include the Australian Chamber of Commerce in China, who we have cooperated with over the years to support Australian investment all over China, as well as Australian investment agencies such as Austrade. Our firm writes, produces, and publishes under Asia Briefing Ltd., including its well-known China, ASEAN, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Russia Briefing titles, and its new Silk Road Briefing title. The China Briefing website alone is in the top one percent of most visited websites, according to Alexa. These titles have long provided educational support to students in Australia for studying purposes, as well as providing a first step ‘how to’ resource for thousands of Australian businesspeople. This commitment to providing a free, educational intelligence service has cemented our reputation as one of the most knowledgeable professional service practices in Asia.
