AST Consulting is an international services company that was established to offer tailor-made solutions to companies regardless their size, industry and country of origin.

We use our knowledge of local regulations, economic environment and habits together with our understanding of international aspects to meet our clients’ needs.

Our headquarters are based in Shanghai, China and we operate through branch offices in China (Shanghai, Beijing) and in France (Paris, Lille, Montpellier).


AST Consulting was created by Fabien Thuilliez in 2008. His goal was to facilitate processes for foreigners wanting to establish in China. Back then, there were only 3 people in the company and they were working in a shared apartment. With his expertise of business in China and his sales skills, clients and referrals started to flow in so Thuilliez hired more people and moved to a bigger (and a real) office.

One year later, Thuilliez acquired the accounting licence to run accounting services within China, and this is how AST Expertise division was launched. 10 employees were working at AST at that time.

In 2010, AST Consulting extends to France with an office in Paris and another in Lille, where Thuilliez comes from.

In 2011, AST established an exclusive partnership with a local CPA Firm to run audit and financial services. AST Group is then created to gather the 3 existing divisions (AST Consulting, AST Expertise and AST CPA). Within the same year, an office in Beijing is established.

This year, we acquired a licence enabling us to provide recruitment and employee dispatching services: Kinsley was launched.

Now, we have over 40 people working for AST Group, providing services for over 300 clients from various industries and regardless their company size. Our goal is to provide a complete range of services, offering our clients the ability to focus on their core business by letting us handle the rest. Not also our company is an example of entrepreneurship, it is also benefiting entrepreneurship through our business scope.
