Cross-border / Global age Structure Building Service

Service Introduction:

From the current situation in China, in the process of globalization of family members or the family businesses, most Chinese families’ overseas assets are scattered, random and sporadic, without systematic age mechanism with domestic assets. With the implementation of foreign exchange control in China, the most practical problem caused by lack of such system is that it is difficult for these families and family business to transfer their domestic funds and assets out of China as well as making it hard for overseas funds and assets to support the development of domestic business. We think the best way to solve this problem is to build a global / cross-border asset age system d on the integration of existing enterprises and project resources.

Service Functions:

Realize efficient cross-border flow of capital

Through overseas direct investment and foreign direct investment in the asset age system, funds can be transferred cross-border freely by profit distribution, trading contracts, licensing agreement of the patents / trademarks and franchises, which effectively resolves the problem of transferring funds into and out of China.

Obtain more extensive and more convenient financing resources

Generally speaking, overseas financing costs are lower than those in China. After the establishment of global asset age system, both overseas and domestic companies are able to do financing by the methods of debt financing (such as loan from domestic financial institutions to foreign companies, offshore financing against domestic guarantee, issuing overseas bonds etc.) and equity financing (domestic parent company increasing capital to overseas subsidiary or overseas parent company increasing the capital to domestic subsidiary.), which helps enterprise build the overseas investment and financing platform and the active operating entity platform with strong and durable financing function.

Provide the foundation for the enterprise to set up cross-border structure.

As is known to all, most large family businesses with over a hundred years history are multinational enterprises. Asset age system provides the fundamental structure for domestic and overseas allocation of enterprise assets, businesses and other resources. It is the first step for a company to transform into a multinational company.

Take advantages of the different countries’ systems to optimize the global allocation of enterprise resources.

In order to attract capital and talents, many countries provide all kinds of distinctive systems to compete with each other. For example, there is no income tax on dividends from overseas sub-company in some countries which have holding company mechanism. This kind of countries is suitable for being the holdings center of multinational companies. Some countries which have many bilateral trade agreements would be perfect for being trade center. d on the asset age system, taking the advantage of different countries’ systems, the enterprise resources will be optimally allocated in the global structural system, including but not limited to enterprise’s brand, trademark, patent, proprietary technology, human resources and other intangible resources.
