Advance pricing agreement (APA)

As tax controversies increase globally, companies are facing even more challenges to mitigate tax risk and achieve tax certainty. APA remains an effective tool for achieving those goals.

In China, an APA is a method of reducing the likelihood of an audit, reducing compliance costs over the term of the APA and to provide certainty around a company’s tax outcome regarding their international transactions.

How we have helped?

  • Represented our clients to conclude the first five formal APA cases in China.
  • Assisted in the majority of bilateral advance pricing arrangements (BAPAs) concluded in China, including the first BAPA with Korea, Singapore and Denmark.
  • Advised on the first China outbound APA.
