About SBA Stone Forest

SBA Stone Forest (SBASF) is a corporate advisory and public accounting group headquartered in Shanghai with offices in Beijing, Suzhou, Shenzhen, Chengdu and Hangzhou. We help foreign businesses set up in China and thereafter support them in navigating China’s regulatory and business environment, having carved a niche serving those from the Americas, Europe, as well as North and South East Asia since we started in 2001.
