Welcome To Our Latest Newsletter

Dear Valued Clients,

   Welcome to our E-Newsletter December 2016

   Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday!

   We are glad to present you our newsletter for December. What’s new and exciting this month?

   Ready to Support
   In this issue of newsletter, we are glad to share with you that we are now one step further into our expansion quest by welcoming our new network member firm, Link-Pro CPA Limited who will represents us in the Hong Kong market.

   Another exciting news to share with you is that we are now able to help our client for crowdfunding services through the support from our new business associates. In brief, Crowdfunding is a way of raising finance by asking a large number of people each for a small amount of money. While some have argued that FinTech may or may not have been born alongside with it. Financial Technology, or also known as FinTech, is a line of business based on using software to provide financial services. More FinTech services are on your way!

   Office Closure on 26 December 2016 to 27 December 2016
   We would like to inform that our office will be closed on 26 December 2016 (Monday) to 27 December 2016 (Tuesday) for a holiday replacement of Christmas. Please be informed that our partner, directors and staff will have no access to the emails on the said dates and all emails will be attended once we resume operations on the next working day.

   Remember to call us if you require any assistance.

   Otherwise, stay tune for any new update and interesting news from us.

Thank you.
