Focus on China

May 16 / 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm UTC+1

An expansion to China with foreign subsidiaries brings many questions: What should be considered when setting up? What financing options are there and what is important for the set-up of the necessary financing structures? Are there any tax particularities when apply to the dispatch of employees and  the provision of intragroup services?

We have the answers: You will be informed comprehensive information about the set-up of Chinese subsidiaries in our event by the financing experts of Deutsche Leasing and contact persons in Germany and China as well as the lawyers and tax consultants of Ecovis and RTS. We will pick up the most important topics and looking forward to have an intensive exchange of ideas with other company representatives.
