This year’s UrbanTec Asia Conference’s main theme was “Smart Solutions for Better Cities”. Grace Shi and Manuela Reintgen, experts on accounting and tax issues, represented ECOVIS Beijing by presenting a short introduction to tax incentives and subsidies for foreign high tech and green technology firms, which plan to invest in China.

The presentation included tax holidays for green-tech companies, a reduced Corporate Income Tax (CIT) for High-and-New Technology Enterprises as well as the so-called super-deduction, a deduction of 150% of R&D expenses before CIT.

At the booth, Chinese and German experts advised visitors on investment opportunities for Chinese companies in Germany. ECOVIS Beijing and its China Helpdesk in Heidelberg now also offer their services to investors from the Middle Kingdom, who want to set up their company, invest in real-estate projects, or who are simply looking for a partner in Germany.

The conference was certainly versatile, interested visitors varied from tech-firms to organizations promoting traditional Chinese medicine worldwide. With its Sino-German background, the staff of ECOVIS Beijing had the chance to demonstrate multiple times its deep understanding of both cultural spheres.

Ecovis Beijing offers a broad range of services in accounting, audit, tax and legal advisory, as well as FDI consulting and assistance for investors in Germany. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to send an e-mail to:
