Direct Inward Investment
We provide companies and individuals with a full range of legal services when contemplating or undertaking investment into Taiwan. Our advise on inward investment into Taiwan is usually combined our expertise in the tax, corporate, securities, and acquisitions field to give an all rounded approach. We also advice our foreign clients on commercial practices unique to the Taiwanese business environment. Our goal is to help navigate our clients through the unfamiliar territories of the Taiwanese business climate in the most efficient and cost effective manner.
Our advice to clients start with the initial stages of selecting the most appropriate business vehicle for operating in Taiwan. This would involve choosing between a representative office, a branch company, or a whole new legal entity subsidiary to the overseas parent company. We would then progress to deal with the legal and regulatory aspects of mature operations such as inward investment approvals, regulatory compliances, corporate structure, corporate taxation, asset financing and loans, mergers and acquisitions, as well as transactions with third party agents, distributors, and joint venture partners.
Examples of work undertaken by us for our international clients would include our advise provided to an international military hardware company in a US$120 million project in Taiwan concerning facility installations, as well as our representation of a major commodities trader in the U.K. eager to expand their operations into the Taiwan market of whom we had advised on regulatory and corporate issues relating to their partnership with a Taiwanese listed company by way of incorporation of a JV vehicle.
