Doing business in Taiwan

PwC’s Doing business in Taiwan is a concise guide to the key aspects of undertaking business in Taiwan, from establishing a legal entity or registered office to complying with local accounting, tax and labour requirements.

It’s a useful reference for foreign companies and investors planning to set up or expand their presence in Taiwan, which is one of the most competitive places in the Asia-Pacific region for business, as well as an important trade and investment gateway to emerging Asian markets and China in particular.

The guide is fully revised and updated every two years. The most recent edition was published in September 2015 and it can be downloaded by clicking on the top right-hand side link. The subjects covered include:

  • Business environment
  • Setting up in Taiwan
  • Labour and employment
  • Accounting and reporting
  • Corporate taxation
  • Personal taxation
  • Indirect and other taxes

Also, a separate update is available as an addendum to the bi-annual guide and is kept current to reflect the latest developments and changes in Taiwan’s business regulatory and tax environment since 4Q 2015.
