Webinar: Starting a business and a life in Germany

January 30 / 10:00 am - 11:00 am UTC-1


Why doing business in Germany?

Germany is considered an attractive country for foreign direct investment (FDI). Germany’s strengths for attracting foreign investment are such as its strategic location in the centre of Europe, political stability, highly developed infrastructure, strong performance in manufacturing, advanced technology and know-how etc. Germany is and continues to be a favorite investment destination for Chinese investors in Europe, because Chinese investors enjoy the ease of doing business, openness to global commerce and sound business regulatory environment in Germany. However, starting a business in Germany can still be a challenge for those who are not familiar with its legal and tax structure, people and culture, which is why having a local professional help is an essential approach!

Ecovis Beijing has been consulting Chinese companies and individuals for their business and operations in Germany/Europe since 2012. We offer our Chinese clients a broad range of services in law, tax, accounting, audit, investment, visa, immigration, and data security.

If your New Year’s resolution is to start a new chapter for your business and yourself in Germany, join us for our webinar “Starting a business and a life in Germany”.
