In today's environment, with China as an increasing consumer market, many companies have a respectable part of their total value chain in China. Quite often this results in having money "trapped' in China. Through the appropriate business model, foreign investors can create solutions and structures to remit cash back to the shareholder or any other related/sister company. Often these models facilitate further growth and expansion in the Asia-Pacific region as well as increased management control, supply chain optimization and effective tax and legal structures. In this session we will provide certain solutions available to foreign invested companies that are looking for ways to repatriate funds from China and understand the banking and tax procedures involved.

Presentation key points

  • Market Trends
  • Are the Chinese tax authorities familiar with profit repatriation strategies and tax optimized structures?
  • Methods for taking your money out of China
  • Warning signs for Chinese tax authorities for tax avoidance structures by foreign investors
  • Considerations that foreign investors need to make when creating their repatriation strategy
