Whether you are multinational corporations, banks and financial institutions, international investors or expatriate individuals, we understand your business and the tax pressures you face. Our teams work together in China, across Europe and beyond in the key areas affecting your business including VAT, overall business tax issues, income tax for corporate and individuals, international taxation, M&A and investment funds, transfer pricing, e-commerce, tax planning and financing as well as customs issues that relate to trade with China. Our experts can help you manage tax control cases and deal with tax authorities.
