Dispute handling & solving with Chinese authorities & administrations:
Problems of expired or insufficient licenses & certificates, fines following inspections or administrative complications with the customs, health control authorities or the tax office in China? Foreign companies established in China with a representative office or a WFOE subsidiary may face major non-compliance issues with the authorities, during a random inspection, an anual audit or, more and more frequently, at the occasion of inspections conducted following a third-party denouncement.
We bring our experience of negotiation and conflict solving with the Chinese administrations so as to reach optimum results whose development and outcome are not left to chance.
