There's been plenty of turmoil in China these days; its economy has slowed down and speculation has it that a financial crisis is about to strike the region. With this in mind, it made perfect sense to launch our series of “regional” webinars paying close attention to the Chinese economy and analyzing how its taxation system influences economic performance.

What do you foresee for the currency?  What is at the root of the Chinese economy’s slowdown? What needs to be done to jumpstart it?  E-commerce is taking off in China. What do you foresee for this sector? How has the government moved to tax this growing industry? Are there any limitations to it?  There’s currently a movement away from production to the tertiary market in China. What are your thoughts on this change?
  4. 4. Topics Covered Taxlinked.net - the online community for lawyers, accountants, trustees and tax specialists.  The General VAT Taxpayer System and the mysteries that surround it. How does one navigate it?  How do individuals or companies remit funds overseas and what types of tax implications exist (if any)?  Tax compliance for foreign entities is quite crucial in China. How do companies adapt to frequent regulations and their changes in order to achieve tax optimization?  Many foreign investors do not do a careful analysis of the Chinese tax system prior to making the investments. As it turns out, many investments do not “pencil” out after the tax issues are considered. What would you recommend to first-time investors in China?  How does the taxation of real estate investment in China work? Any peculiarities to it? Anything of utmost importance that must be take into account by investors?  What sort of tax breaks or benefits are available to start-ups or small, innovative businesses in China?
