Women Founders of the Future

AmCham Shanghai

This event will bring together accomplished women CEOs and start-up founders to help share their experience and thoughts on the future.

AustCham Seminar: Business Models for Privately Owned Business in China

AustCham & Tricor

Cost: 50 RMB (members); 100 (non-members)

Please RSVP by contacting [email protected]

The Chinese market is increasingly open to foreigner investors as a part of Chinese nationwide policy.  Among potential investors, there are expatriates who have accumulated valuable experience from working for MNCs with Mainland China operations as well as young talents who have acquired the language, culture and networks through university/postgraduate studies in major cities.  Some of these prospects are beginning to explore the setting up of their privately-owned business in China, tapping into their acquired knowledge-base and their networks.

What are the business models open to these start-ups?  To optimize value and growth of a chosen business, is it preferable to set up some form of foreign-invested enterprise (FIE) in the Mainland, or use Hong Kong as the platform for entity formation and business set-up? What are the pros and cons?

In this seminar, Desmond Lau, Director of Tricor China Corporate Services, will be sharing with participants his analysis of the different involvements in setting up a Mainland-based entity or a Hong Kong-based entity, in terms of the process of formation, corporate structure, operation and taxation.  He will further elaborate on certain key considerations in making a choice, using the case study of a Hong Kong-based vehicle as a platform to drive international trade.
