BDO Overview of Doing Business in China

There are a number of reasons why many U.S Companies ─ and the people who power them ─ consider moving across borders to conduct business. Among the top motivations and challenges are entity formation and how taxes are applied both corporately and individually. The International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation (IBFD), on behalf of BDO Member Firms and their clients and prospective clients, has prepared this publication entitled “Doing Business in China” to assist in the decision-making process. Here, we provide crucial background information about the entity setup and taxation of businesses in foreign locations. This guide also covers tax information for those individuals who are considering working or living permanently on foreign soil. It is designed to provide the basic information needed to make important decisions – and to also serve as a catalyst for deeper research with our assistance if needed.

This whitepaper has been prepared by the International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation (IBFD) on behalf of BDO Member firms and their clients and prospective clients is designed to provide the essential background information on the taxation aspects of setting up and running a business in China.
