China 

There’s no question: China offers tremendous business opportunities. At the same time, unfamiliar tax and regulatory regimes and business customs, as well as language and cultural differences, can make business and investment transactions between Canada and China both complex and challenging.

KPMG International was the first foreign firm to be granted a joint venture license in China. That was over 60 years ago, and, since then, we in Canada have developed a deep understanding of the Chinese business environment and established a strong working relationship with our over 9,500 professional counterparts in 12 offices in China and Hong Kong.

 

KPMG’s China Business practice in Canada is focused on helping Chinese companies invest, access capital, or go public in Canada, and support Canadian companies entering, as well as sourcing or investing in, China. Also, our involvement with several Canada-China cultural associations, including our strong relationship with the Canada-China Business Council, enhances our understanding of the market and the challenges related to entering and doing business in the country, and helps provide value to our clients.
