Our UK Offering
As the level of business and number of transactions with China increases, so too does the demand for financial and advisory services. Grant Thornton's dedicated China Britain Services Group assists in satisfying the high demand for targeted advice in this rapidly changing market with teams based in both the UK and China. Here in the UK, we have a number of native Mandarin and Cantonese speakers specialising in service streams including tax, transaction support and audit. They already work with the following:
- China-based companies aiming to raise funds in the UK through an IPO, typically on AIM
- China-based companies seeking to gain entry into the UK through organic growth or acquisition
- UK-based companies seeking to develop or acquire a presence in China.
The members of the Group have considerable experience of working with the Chinese in both China and Hong Kong and have developed in-depth understanding not only of doing business but of the business culture in modern China which can often vary from region to region - making our local knowledge invaluable.
Headquartered in Beijing, Grant Thornton in China also have offices in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Nanjing, Wuhan, Chengdu, Taiyuan , Changchun, Qingdao and Hong Kong. We have a strong foothold in all major economic centres in the country and are continuing to build our national presence.
We have relationships with large corporate organizations, state owned enterprises and directly with the Chinese government.
We are involved with a number of China related organisations including being members of the China-Britain Business Council (CBBC) and the Hong Kong Association. Additionally, we have been actively involved in hosting China specific events for both UK Trade & Investment and the CBI.
We have also forged a number of relationships with key intermediaries such as law firms, recruitment agencies, real estate consultants and other business support services.
