Tax Deregistration

Tax Deregistration in China can occur for many reasons. Closing a local store, closing an office, liquidation to move into another country or bankruptcy are all legitimate factors for deregistration.

Pre-Bankruptcy or Financial Difficulties

Under-performing real-estate assets and properties (often due to poor management), inadequate debt or equity capitalization and unpredictable changes to the real-estate market, can significantly affect the financial health of any company.
