Incorporating a LLC in China
It is important that the organizer(s) of a prospective LLC follow the "enabling statutes" or formation laws of the national in which the company will be formed in order to be designated as an LLC. Without this designation, the company will lack the protection of limited liability and will be treated as a general partnership. Therefore, the first step in creating an LLC is to find out your national's specific enabling statutes.
The organizer does not have to be one of the company's members. The organizer's function is to file the articles of organization, a task which can be accomplished by a lawyer, a hired agent from a service company specializing in such business, or a manager of the prospective company.
