On September 1, TEI officially opened an office in Shanghai, China, further solidifying its footing as the preeminent global association of in-house tax executives.
2019年9月1日,税务高管协会(TEI)在中国上海正式开设办事处,进一步巩固其全球企业税务高管协会的卓越地位。

TEI first established its presence in Asia in 2005 when it chartered a chapter based in Singapore. Over the ensuing fourteen years, the Institute’s profile in the region has grown steadily due to stalwart chapter leadership, superior educational programming and networking events, and the development of relationships with tax and development authorities in mainland China, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
TEI于2005年首次在新加坡设立亚洲分会。随后十年中,TEI亚洲分会所在区域的影响力稳步增长,这得益于强大的分会领导力、卓越的教育规划和网络活动,以及TEI与中国大陆,新加坡以及中国香港的税务、和发展部门之间的关系发展。

New regulatory restrictions in China, effective January 1, 2017, provided an opportunity for TEI to pause and undertake a strategic review of its activities in the Asia-Pacific region. TEI engaged Baker McKenzie to advise on how to effectively navigate the new regulatory landscape, and the Institute called upon its executive committee, board, and staff to evaluate structural alternatives that would allow TEI to operate legally and grow in China and for TEI members throughout Asia to continue their vibrant educational and networking programs. After significant due diligence and consultation, TEI embarked on the formation of a for-profit entity in China (a wholly foreign-owned enterprise, or WFOE) to run its publications, conference, and training activities. September 1 marked the formal opening of TEI’s WFOE, and we are now well positioned to accelerate our growth in mainland China and throughout the entire Asia-Pacific region. Marking a significant milestone for TEI’s growth around the world, the Shanghai office is the first TEI office established outside the United States since the Institute’s founding in 1944.
2017年1月1日起在中国大陆执行的监管制度使得TEI暂停亚太地区的活动,同时也为TEI对其在亚太地区的活动进行战略审查提供了机会。TEI聘请Baker McKenzie就如何有效应对新的监管环境提出建议。同时呼吁TEI执行委员会,董事会和员工评估架构替代方案,以便TEI在中国合法经营和发展,并确保整个亚洲地区的TEI成员能继续开展富有活力的教育及网络活动。经过重大尽职调查和协商,TEI开始在中国成立一个营利性实体(即“外商独资企业”),以便TEI在中国开展其出版,会议和培训活动。 2019年9月1日,标志着TEI的外商独资企业正式开业,我们已经做好准备在中国大陆乃至整个亚太地区实现加速增长。中国办公室的设立是一个非常重要的步骤。事实上,中国办公室是TEI自1944年成立以来在美国以外建立的第一个办公室,这也是TEI在全球发展的重要里程碑。

TEI’s China office will be led by our new full-time staff member, Wu Dongming. Wu, who also goes by Tommy, is a seasoned practitioner with nearly thirty years of professional taxation experience. He graduated from the prestigious Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, majoring in taxation, and continued his education to earn an MBA. Wu’s career includes more than ten years of experience in the Shanghai Municipal Taxation Bureau and nearly twenty years of experience in both China state-owned listed companies and large multinational companies, including Carrefour and, most recently, IBM.
TEI的中国办公室将由新入职的全职员工吴东明先生领导。 吴先生是一位经验丰富的税务从业者,拥有近30年的专业税务经验。 他毕业于著名的上海财经大学,主修税务专业,并接受继续教育获得MBA学位。 吴先生的职业生涯包括在上海市税务局工作超过10年,在中国国有上市公司和大型跨国企业(包括家乐福,最近还有IBM)工作近20年。

Wu has been a longstanding TEI member and had held several leadership positions in the Asia Chapter, including Asia Chapter board member and China vice president. He has also held leadership positions in a variety of other Chinese trade associations and, through this work, made important contributions to fiscal and tax reforms in China. He currently serves as co-chairman of the prestigious CCFA finance and taxation forum and is actively involved in the Enterprise Tax Directors Association, in which he currently serves as president of the East China Branch.
吴先生是TEI的长期成员,曾在TEI亚洲分会担任多个领导职务,包括亚洲分会董事,中国区域副总裁。同时,他还在其他中国行业协会担任领导职务,期间积极为中国财税改革做出了重要贡献。他目前担任著名的中国连锁协会(CCFA)财税论坛联合主席,以及中国税务总监协会(ETDA)的华东分会会长。

Wu has established himself as an authority on international taxation matters in China, particularly in the field of advance tax rulings. He has published numerous articles in professional tax journals as well as a treatise, “Overview of the Overseas Advance Tax Ruling System,” that analyzes advance tax ruling procedures in twenty-one countries and regions.
吴先生是中国国际税务事务的权威专家,特别是在税收事先裁定领域。 他在专业税务期刊上发表了大量文章,并著书《境外税收事先裁定制度概览》,分析了21个国家和地区的税收事先裁定程序。

He also holds a variety of other tax-related social positions, including master’s tutor at the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, deputy director of the China Big Company Taxation Research Institute, postgraduate tutor at Jilin University of Finance and Economics, and chief researcher at the China Taxation Research Center. TEI is fortunate to have a professional of Wu’s stature leading our China office.
吴先生还同时担任多个税务相关的社会职务,包括上海财经大学硕士生导师,中国大企业税务研究所副所长,吉林财经大学研究生导师,神州税道税务研究中心首席研究员。 TEI感到十分有幸能由吴先生带领中国办公室。
