Balanced Solutions Internationally

A subject at the forefront of everyone's mind, more so in these days of fiscal tightening internationally.

Our taxation specialists deliver balanced solutions in all tax disciplines covering Hong Kong, Macau, and China. We will help you identify and understand the tax benefits of alternative options, thereby minimising your tax liabilities and assisting you in long term financial planning.

We have in depth experience handling tax investigations and field audit cases, allowing us to secure prompt and fair settlements.

With our colleagues throughout the Baker Tilly International network we can provide expert advice on establishing investment structures, corporate organisations and trusts. We also assist clients with cross-border transfer pricing issues.
