Michael Wen Partner
I enjoy connecting Asian national clients and in particular Chinese national clients, with Australia – assisting them with accounting, financing and taxation affairs for both their Australia and overseas entities.
Having grown up in Shanghai, proficient in English, Mandarin and Cantonese, along with other dialects, I enjoy using my 11+ years’ experience to benefit my clients. I have worked with a variety of clients including Government-owned companies of China, major Chinese –listed companies, medium to large size private companies, high net worth resident and non-resident families and their related Australian investments.
My language proficiencies, coupled with my experience in dealing with both Australian and Asian business clients, allows me to facilitate cross border transactions with clarity.
There are many cultural differences between doing business in Australia relative to Asia, which can often be a barrier to success. I aim to assist foreign clients in quickly adapting to Australian protocols and ensuring they access the right business networks to progress their business opportunities.
Key areas of focus for me are Business Advisory Services, Business Planning, Taxation, Capital Gains Tax and GST, Taxation Planning, Due Diligence and Financial assistance to Business Visa Applications.
In my private life, I enjoy travelling and keeping active with friends. I am also a big fan of soccer and footy and which I enjoy watching with my social circles.
