Doing Business in China – Masterclass on Finance Topics 1.0

The EY “Doing Business in China” Masterclass is a sequence of half-day classroom-type courses tailored for Swiss and European companies, who are already doing business in China, or are planning to do so short to mid-term. In such case our Masterclass is designed to provide for valuable input and information on various financial aspects to consider when entertaining or setting up such business endeavors in the China market. 

In this regard, the Masterclass will focus on chosen topics of Chinese tax and accounting practices, regulatory nuances as well as strategic compliance. The course will be held by our experienced China Business Desk team. To allow effective learning, it will be open to max. 15 participants. Our first Masterclass will be held in Zurich on 10 June 2024, and we look forward to extending these classes to the Romandie/Ticino regions after the summer break. 

We hope to be able to welcome you at either the pilot Masterclass Date in Zurich or one of the following dates in other regions. If you are not able to attend this time, but you are interested in future “Doing Business in China” Masterclass events, please register your interest here.
