Doing Business in Taiwan

Doing Business in Taiwan is a practical reference guide for foreign companies and investors entering the Taiwan market for the first time or growing their existing business.

Most people know Taiwan as a key player in the global information and communications technology industry, but it also acts as a bridge to the huge Chinese market. This role is becoming ever more important, driven by the normalisation of relations between Taiwan and China since 2008.

Continued improvements in Taiwan's business regulatory environment, coupled with pro-business government policies, robust intellectual property protection and one of the lowest corporate tax rates in Asia, have also contributed to making Taiwan an attractive destination for foreign investment.

The latest edition, published in July 2013,provides insight into the key aspects of undertaking business in Taiwan, from establishing a business entity to dealing with accounting, tax and employee matters.

Subjects covered include:

  • Business environment
  • Set up and investment
  • Labour and employment
  • Accounting and audit
  • Corporate taxation
  • Personal taxation
  • Other taxes

The guide is revised and published every two years.  For the latest updates on tax-related developments in Taiwan, PwC’s monthly tax newsletter is available for download here.
