Investing valuable services for your business

Opportunities and challenges

With the continual growth of the Chinese economy and rapid pace of urbanisation, the favorable conditions have created a significant opportunity for both domestic and foreign investors. Participation in the real estate market can take various forms, including: direct property ownership, investment in listed property companies, REIT investments and private equity funds. In each case, investors need to be mindful of the financial, regulatory and tax issues that can have a significant impact on the success of an investment.

Issues to be considered by real estate capital providers should generally include:

  • the applicable laws and legal procedures
  • the regulatory restrictions affecting real estate transactions and the associated complications in executing transactions
  • the tax costs associated with real estate and structuring options to optimize the efficiency of the investment
  • restrictions on the financing of investments and the repatriation of funds.
