“How to Set Up a Business in Taiwan” A Workshop Series from FutureWard

Updated: Jan 5, 2022

We at All Hands are happy to share a series of workshops this month on how to set up a business in Taiwan by our partners at FutureWard. This series will provide integral information that foreign entrepreneurs will need to know in the process of starting their businesses in Taiwan.

Each event in the series addresses questions that FutureWard and All Hands often get approached with: ‘What are the visa options for foreigners?’ ‘What are the legal requirements of starting a business?’  ‘What is the deal with filing company and individual Tax?’

Attendees can expect precise answers that will clear up confusion and misinformation that too often surrounds these topics courtesy of professionals who work directly with each topic. The workshops will also offer a great chance to network with a community who have shared interests in building a thriving business in Taiwan.

Please register on ACCUPASS (links below) – event tickets are NT$150 each and NT$100 if you bring a friend. Find the relevant Facebook event pages for each workshop at the bottom of this article. Here is a summary of each of the events in the series.
