Identifying a competent agent to manage the complex process will be a cost and time effective way to avoid potential pitfalls. Tannet can provide all the needed services for startups.

Advantages of China Business Setup
The benefits of registering a company in China are endless. Some of the benefits of registering a company in the most populous country of the world include:
1. China is the world’s largest foreign exchange reserve and China Government has aggressively put forward stimulus plans to boost domestic consumption;
2. Personal savings: As China economy develops and China government encourages local consumption, Chinese people are more comfortable to spend their money;
3. China government has taken active and effective macroeconomics measures to boost the domestic market. With the huge reserve in China government and hard-earned saving of the people, your business will lag behind if cannot tap into the huge opportunities for China trade and China investment.

Basic Types of China Business Entity
To invest in China, there are four major forms of business entities:
Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprises (WFOEs);
Foreign Invested Commercial Enterprises (FICEs);
Representative Offices in China;
Joint Ventures (Equity Joint Ventures and Cooperative Joint Ventures).
