The books in this series show the reader how to set up and run a business within each country's legal, banking, employment and taxation systems. Also, they offer advice from professionals who know, ""hands-on"", what it's like to operate in these countries.;These reports: demonstrate what has to be done to collect debt, buy property, repatriate profits. They can be used as ready-reckoners to the key statutes, regulations and SIs that enable a company to be formed and they can be used for advice on investment opportunities available in terms of possible joint ventures, acquisitions, franchising and setting up subsidiaries.;Any changes will be updated with supplements and the books have special pockets in the front for these supplements to be kept.
