We are a leading tax adviser in China and Hong Kong, providing both local and multinational clients with sound legal solutions to complex tax issues. Our comprehensive approach is practical and resourceful, taking into account tax considerations in the country of investment, the investor’s home country and any other jurisdiction that might be involved.
Because we are lawyers, we not only advise on optimal structures, but can implement the structures and, if necessary, defend them before tax authorities.
Our tax practice is consistently regarded as a premier and award-winning international tax practice in Hong Kong and China, and has earned a strong reputation in advising on all aspects of tax laws relating to the Greater China region, including tax planning, business and corporate structuring, mergers and acquisitions, tax controversy and litigation, and transfer pricing, as well as advising on personal tax matters. We can also advise on withholding taxes and the application of tax treaties in cross-border transactions.
We focus exclusively on high value tax structuring advice and the legal implementation of that advice. Our key advantage is the combination of being the leading international law firm in Greater China and being the top global tax practice among law firms — giving us the ability to understand the interplay between tax structuring and the unique regulatory environment in China.
We can also advise on the full range of indirect taxes such as stamp duty in Hong Kong, with particular experience and capabilities in the financial products sector, and VAT, business tax and customs duties in China.
