Dezan Shira & Associates Experts Discuss Company Relocation in South China
On June 27-28, Dezan Shira & Associates Guangzhou and Shenzhen teams presented on the topic of “Relocation: Site Selection, Legal, HR and Tax Considerations” at two seminars hosted by the German Chamber of Commerce – South China.
Increasing operation expenses, tighter regulations, fierce competition or simply new opportunities, are some of the reasons companies decide to relocate to smaller cities or different regions with lower costs, tax incentives and less-saturated markets.
Dezan Shira & Associates’ South China teams provided a comprehensive insight into a number of different aspects to take into consideration when thinking about relocation.
What was discussed?
Juan Rojas, International Business Advisory Associate, examined the most common reasons companies relocate, current regional trends and opportunities and key metrics to consider when determining a relocation strategy.
Sean Huang and Lucy Liu, Business Advisory Service Managers, explained general strategies from the legal perspective companies have at hand when considering relocating, whether relocating in the same city, cross-city, mergers or deregistration, and how to properly manage human resources.
Finally, Daisy Huang and Amber Liu, Corporate Accounting Service Senior Managers, provided detailed information on how to prepare for relocating from a tax and finance point of view. Included in this was an examination on the specific procedures when approaching China’s tax authorities and key points to be aware during the transition period.
