Dealmaking and reorganization in Asia Pacific has grown steadily in the past year and the Mergers and Acquisitions (“M&A”) volumes are returning to pre-pandemic levels. In particular, Hong Kong and Mainland China have emerged as prime destinations for M&A activities. If you are considering a deal in this region, it is essential to understand those critical tax issues to ensure a seamless M&A deal.


In this webinar, the speakers will address to the following elements:

  • tax implications in asset deals and equity deals in Hong Kong and China;
  • how the refined FSIE regime in Hong Kong may impose additional tax concern in M&A;
  • other tax considerations in group restructuring;
  • common tax issues to consider in SPA negotiations.

No CPD hours will be granted if you have already attended the seminar on 19 June 2023.
