Setting up a business in China refers to China business setup, China company registration and China corporate formation, etc. In order to successfully set up a business in China, it is crucial to proceed correctly as the regulations and rules require. One would be well-served to work with a Chinese consulting firm like Tannet. Such consulting firm will help navigate the complex Chinese business system, which may meet corporate goals and financial objectives while minimizing risk.

I. Forms of Legal Entity
Your presence in China may be in the form of a wholly owned foreign enterprise (WFOE), a contractual joint venture (CJV), an equity joint venture (EJV), a representative office (RO) or a local representation by a third party (local secretary/representation service companies).

II. Business Scope
China National Development and Reform Commission may prohibit, restrict, permit or encourage your business set-up based on your business categorization and scope. Hence it is critical to carefully define your business scope so as to be permitted or encouraged to set up the presence.

III. Registered Capital (or Share Capital)
The Chinese government requires certain minimum registered capital for various types of businesses. However, local Industry and Commerce Administrations may decide on your minimum registered capital based on their judgement of your business scope and operation scale. You need to confirm with local government agencies the minimum registered capital through local contacts before taking any other actions in case they require an amount far above your financial resources available for the China operation.

IV. Locations for Business Operation
China abandoned its preferential tax rate for investments of foreign companies from January 1st 2008.
