China has a complex tax system that involves multiple employers and employee deductions and forms of social insurance. The tax requirements also vary by region and city. We can help with all complex tax problems and prepare statements and reports regarding taxes, payroll, and statutory returns.
China does not generally recognize trademarks and other intellectual property that is registered in foreign jurisdictions and has a first-to-file law that respects ownership interests of the individuals and companies that first register the intellectual property with the company.
