Webinar Invitation ——Interpretation on cross-border royalty payment

Royalty fees, together with other payment items (such as management fees, dividend, interest, etc.), have always been one of fund repatriation options for multinational groups to obtain cash from China. Due to China's strict foreign exchange control, cross-border payments have always troubled financial and tax people working in multinational companies, and in terms of royalty, it should also meet the regulatory requirements of tax authorities, Customs, and even commerce bureaus or technology administrative departments.
