Asia Pacific market entry services
Strategic expansion into new markets is challenging for any business. This is true even of the most user-friendly countries for inbound investment, such as Singapore.
Taylor Vinters alleviates these challenges by helping you assess, execute and deliver an efficient market entry strategy, using our international network to ensure high quality ‘on-the-ground’ service.
Inevitably, in any project of this kind, a number of third party providers will be involved. That’s why we act as a central point of co-ordination, engaging with those providers on your behalf, and helping you manage multiple project work streams with the minimum of fuss.
This is possible because we have expanded overseas ourselves, and helped many other organisations making the same journey by working as an extension of their in-house business teams.
We will help you assess the market entry project at an early stage, in the following key areas:
Analysing the legal landscape relevant to your particular sector.
Identifying which government grants and tax incentives may be suitable for your company.
Presenting your options on set-up from a corporate tax and trading perspective.
Briefing on employment market trends, availability of talent, benchmarking remuneration and help with immigration processes.
Mapping the local real estate market and possible office locations.
Providing a detailed timeline to help you monitor progress of the market entry project.
During the execution stage we will work with you on:
Set-up of your local business entity
Corporate support services – company secretarial, etc.
Immigration and work passes
Assistance with engagement of other third party services – banking, tax recruitment, payroll, property search, etc.
Networking and familiarisation – introductions to potential business partners, as well as regulators and other government contacts, as appropriate
Planning and project management
Intra-group agreements, e.g. to reflect revenue recognition/transfer pricing structure
Corporate transactional, equity or debt funding arrangements, acquisitions and joint ventures
Commercial agreements, localising standard-form documents for new markets, and ‘playbook’ detailing legal and market practice variations in your target jurisdiction(s)
Analysis of intellectual property protection strategy
Employment contracts and policies for the new operation
A market entry success story
Fast-growing Red Gate Software, who provide tools for database developers and administrators, recently used our market entry service when they set up an operation in Singapore. This enabled them to achieve their aim of providing a round-the-clock support infrastructure and provide a focus to expand their markets in Asia.
Nick Wood, Head of Operations at Red Gate, explained, “Taylor Vinters have been instrumental in making our set-up in Singapore a great success, helping us understand the market and make strategic connections in Asia”.
We continue to work with Red Gate in the implementation phase, providing a managed service co-ordinating external professionals, handling legal issues and acting as a business partner introducing Red Gate to relevant individuals in Singapore.
