Documenting of costs and financial accounting practices of Asian companies, including those in China, often vary from those of Western organizations. Capital costs often do not appear on the balance sheet. Significant government subsidies are often provided to Asian companies and are not part of their financials. Asian companies are often motivated to employ staff and not to make money. These issues must be identified and understood before accurate conclusions can be drawn.
