China Business Advice and Support Services

We provide ongoing China business consulting, advice and support for International SMEs clients establishing and growing their business in China according to their business needs. Our services include forming Wholly-Foreign Owned Enterprises, (“WFOE”), Representative Office (“RO”) and Joint Venture (“JV”) companies in China. We do this at both an organizational and individual level. Our service is an alternative for expanding the capacity when clients do not have representation or adequate resources in China and we become their back-ups. Companies with a China presence use us to provide outside perspective and objective opinions on their specific business issues and topics.

  • China Company Formation

One has to understand that setting up a company in China is not that simple, especially if you are not familiar with the Chinese rules and regulations, which can be different in different provinces. Our staff members will assist you to set up company in China in the most cost effective way and we will help you in every step all the way to be successful in establishing your business in China.

There are 3 types of business organisations that foreign investors can establish and they are WFOE, RO and JV. The requirements on registered capital, documentation and time for approval by the government may differ from one province to another and from one industry to another too. Therefore, we are here to provide you with our professional services to ensure that your intended company will be formed within the time frame.

  • China Accounting Services

We assist foreign investors to set up a proper accounting system to ensure ease of transaction processing, proper book-keeping and hassle free annual audit. We serve by formulating and implementing accounting system and processing that allow financial reporting, including IFRS compliance, for management reporting and controlling purposes. This includes computing various financial matrixes for management to assess the performance of their business.

  • China Tax Services

Foreign invested enterprises shall file their accounting statements and provisional income tax returns within 15 days from the end of each quarter with the local tax authorities. In order to meet such an obligation, you can outsource to us the daily finanice administration such as tax filing and payments, book-keeping and financial statement generation, while you can focus on your core business activities. We can also assist you with Capital Verification and other tax compliance obligations in China.

  • International Investors in China

Since China’s accession to WTO and the introduction of Close Economic Partnership Arrangement (“CEPA”) with Hong Kong and Macau Special Administration Regions, many areas are opened to the two regions and gradually to foreign investors. As part of the Chinese government policy of encouraging foreign investment in China, there are various tax incentives offered to foreign investors. To take advantage of these tax incentives, it requires foreign investors to go through complicated procedures and othen dealing with more than one group of authorities, including the Ministry of Commerce, the State Administration of Taxation, local tax bureaus, the customs authorities, and the Ministry of Science and Technology.

Examples of tax incentives include:

o    15% tax rate for high and new technology enterprises;

o    20% tax rate for small-scale and low profit enterprises;

o    Bonus deduction for research and development;

o    VAT and duty exemptions for imported equipments;

o    VAT refunds for exported goods;

o    Business tax exemptions for technology transfer.

Alpha Partners will assist you to assess your eligibility for those stipulated tax incentives and help secure your privelege to those incentives, and to assist you to structure your operation and transaction to maximise your tax incentives which are more beneficial to you.

  • China Investment Holding Structure

It is important for you to choose the location of an overseas holding company for holding the investment in the Chinese company because it can have a significant impact on the tax liability in China. Chinese law allows for the ownership of a Foreign Investment Enterprise located in China to be held by a special pupose vehicle (“SPV”) outside of China, whether in a tax treaty country or in a tax advantageous jurisdiction such as Hong Kong or the British Virgin Islands. Our service will include working with clients to carefully review all possible locations in order to minimise both the China and worldwide tax burden.
