China tax - M&A Processes and Solutions (MAPS) in China 

The prime rationale for a company undertaking a merger or acquisition is to achieve greater market share by gaining access to new markets and new products as well as to eventually increase shareholder value.  Yet, many deals fail to fully achieve the anticipated returns.
  
Whether you are involved with buying or divesting a company in China, an internal reorganisation of a corporate structure that includes companies or businesses in China, a change in the equity ownership held by your Chinese partner or your other foreign investor, or planning a joint venture, you will come across regulatory hurdles and tax issues.
  
Our MAPS team is a leading service provider for M&A tax services in China market.  Nationally our team comprises more than 100 full-time tax professionals in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong.
  
Throughout the deal process, MAPS team specialists could assist in performing buyer and vendor tax due diligence reviews and advising on tax efficient acquisition models.  We also advise our clients on tax efficient corporate restructuring, investment holding structures and operation models.  Whilst the Chinese tax authorities increasingly question the tax residency and qualification of foreign investors in claiming tax treaty benefits, our MAPS team helps our clients clarify with the Chinese tax authorities for their eligibility and perform the relevant application procedures.
