Program
 
Conducting business across national borders is complex.  Rarely do university courses provide the "gory details" of managing business across borders, especially that involving Mainland China's complex and changing customs administration rules and protocols. Beyond dealing with the customs procedures, there are important internal issues involved in simply transferring goods within a company via HK (or other) holding companies and subsidiaries; these issues can affect taxes and profits in a significant way. Our guests have extensive experience working with numerous businesses in countless situations involving the trading and movement of goods into and out of Mainland China.  They are highly experienced in handing complex customs procedures and problems, and are expert in areas such as transfer pricing and related taxes. Mr. Lin and Ms. Chen will present such issues that every cross-border business manager must be familiar with, else the business is at great risk.
