About the Event:
Corporate Governance has been a major issue in the Western world for a significant period of time and has now gained momentum in Asia. The government is cracking down on anti-corruption, integrity and ethical behaviour, disclosure and transparency, rights and equitable treatment of shareholders and interests of other stakeholders. This seminar will provide all the necessary information about Risk Management in China for foreign companies and what the companies and their employees need to avoid and address in the workplace. The topics will cover some HR issues, such as proper employment (labour steps including contracts, social insurance, work licences and permits, residence permits, individual income tax an employee handbooks), and business issues such as IP, contracts and anti-corruption (contracts with clients, vendors, suppliers, manufacturers and taxes- value added tax, business tax, enterprise income tax).
