Starting or growing a foreign enterprise requires careful consideration of many factors – like structure, taxation, human resources and cultural differences.
Without advisors who know the local landscape and understand your business culture, this can be challenging. Accru’s Sydney office, Accru Felsers has been helping Chinese and Australian companies successfully establish overseas projects, export businesses and joint ventures for over a decade. We are active members of the Australia China Business Council in Sydney. Through our membership of CPAAI, a global association with 150 offices worldwide, we can provide you with face-to-face advice wherever you do business.
