How much will you charge me?
It depends on the nature of your enquiry, but we are the most cost-effective firm for overseas work and we make it clear how much our expertise will cost from the outset.
We’re happy with the counter party we’re working with – can you just run a quick check to confirm they’re OK so we can tick the box for compliance purposes?
If you haven’t done these checks before you engaged them, then the chances are they are not OK. At this point, we’ll need to do some risk management work to make sure everything is above board.
How can I save tax on our group structure when I do business in China?
Tax avoidance shouldn’t be the primary concern at the outset. Focus on getting everything else right first – having a workable, secure commercial structure is very difficult if you have prioritised tax advice first.
From commercial agreements to navigating complicated employment and immigration law, we pride ourselves on having a practical, commercial approach.
