外商投资合伙企业系继中外合资经营企业、中外合作经营企业和外资企业(“三资企业”)以及外商投资股份有限公司后, 外国投资者在中国境内直接投资的又一种组织形式。

FIPE is a new form of organization directly invested by foreign investors in China, aside from Sino-foreign Equity Joint Venture Enterprises, Sino-foreign Cooperative Joint Venture Enterprises and Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprises (“FIE”) and Foreign Invested Company Limited by Shares.

background of the measures2
二. 立法背景Background of the Measures

2009年11月, 国务院最终颁布《管理办法》, 其简化了原《送审稿》的内容, 修正了《送审稿》中诸多突破《合伙企业法》的规定(例如合伙人出资方式、期限、合伙协议及其修正案的效力、合伙协议的准据法律等)。

The Measures was finally approved by the State Council, which largely simplified the contents of the Draft Measures and revised a number of provisions in the Draft Measures which are inconsistent with the Partnership EnterpriseLaw (e.g., method and schedule of capital contribution by partners, term, effectiveness of partnership agreements and its amendments, applicable law of partnership agreements, etc).

The Measures: Submitting the documents stipulated in the Administrative Measures on PRC Partnership Enterprise Registration and an explanation for compliance with the foreign investment industry policy .

main content and feature of the measures5
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures

问题: 如果涉及限制或者禁止外商投资产业政策的领域,《管理办法》并未直接规定是否须经商务主管部门的审查批准。

Issue: If involving industries where foreign investment is restricted or prohibited, the Measures did not directly stipulated whether the examination and approval by the administration of commerce shall be obtained.

问题: 是否意味着工商局具有一定的审核权?

Q: Does the Registration Authority have the power of examination and approval?

main content and feature of the measures6
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures

问题: 外资合伙企业若涉及限制类行业领域, 是否会参照适用三资企业境内再投资规定?

Issue: If a FIPE involves restricted industries, whether the above provisions on FIE reinvestment in China will be used as reference?

三资企业境内再投资, 不得对禁止类领域再投资, 若再投资涉及限制类, 则工商局在登记前要求申请人取得商务主管部门的审查批准。

FIEs cannot reinvest in prohibited industries in China. If involving restricted industries, the Registration Authority requires that the applicant obtain the examination and approval by the administration of commerce before registration.

main content and feature of the measures7
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures
  • 对于取消审批制度的猜想:

Speculation on Abandoning the Examination and Approval System

    • 宏观层面—整个经济和政策大环境发生变化, 商务部的职能可能发生变化

Macroscopic View: With the change in the entire economic and political environment, the responsibilities and functions of MOFCOM may also changed.

main content and feature of the measures8
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures
  • 技术层面—由于合伙企业(特别是普通合伙企业)非常弱化“认缴出资”的概念, 认缴出资具有相当的灵活性, “投资总额”和“注册资本”对合伙企业适用度不高。

Technical View: Because PE (esp. GPE) weakens the concept of Subscribed Capital (which is quite flexible), the concept of TOTAL INVESTMENT and REGISTERED CAPITAL may not completely applicable to LPE.

main content and feature of the measures9
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures
  • 例外—投资项目核准: 外国企业或者个人在中国境内设立合伙企业涉及须经政府核准的投资项目的, 依照国家有关规定办理投资项目核准手续。

Exception — approval of invested project: If the establishment a PE in China by a foreign enterprise or individual involves an invested project requiring government approval, the project approval formalities shall be carried out according to the relevant PRC laws.

三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures
  • 行业准入和经营范围

Industry Access and Business Scope

main content and feature of the measures11
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures

Draft Measures: The establishment and business activities of a FIPE shall comply with the foreign investment industry policy of the PRC. A FIPE engaging in the industries limited to Equity Joint Venture or Contractual Joint Venture, as stipulated in the Catalogue for Guidance of Foreign Investment Industries, must have more than 1 Chinese GP. As for a FIPE engaging in the industries where the Chinese parties must hold a majority or relative majority of shares, the Chinese partner shall have the decision making power on the matters other than those stipulated by Article 31 of the Partnership Enterprise Law. As for a FIPE engaging in the industries where the Chinese parties must hold a majority of shares, the total proportion allocated to the Chinese partners shall be 51% or more; as for a FIPE engaging in the industries where the Chinese parties must hold a relative majority of shares, the total proportion allocated to the Chinese partners shall be more than that ofeach of the foreign partners.

main content and feature of the measures12
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures
  • 《送审稿》: 外商投资合伙企业不得通过合伙人财产份额的出质、转让和强制执行、合伙企业的表决办法、合伙人的入伙和退伙、有限合伙人和普通合伙人的相互转变等方式规避前述要求。

Draft Measures: A FIPE cannot evade the above requirements by methods of pledge, transfer and enforcement of contributed shares of the partners, voting system of PE, partner’s joining and withdrawing from the enterprise, change from LP to GP or vice versa, etc.

main content and feature of the measures13
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures
  • 《管理办法》: 外国企业或者个人在中国境内设立合伙企业, 应当遵守《合伙企业法》以及其他有关法律、行政法规、规章的规定, 符合有关外商投资的产业政策。

Draft Measures: Establishment of a PE in China by foreign enterprise or individual should be in compliance with the Partnership Enterprise Law and the provisions of other relevant laws, administrative regulations and the foreign investment industry policies.

main content and feature of the measures14
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures
  • 问题: 《送审稿》中设定的标准也缺乏合理性, 例如其要求“中方控股”产业的外商投资合伙企业, 中国合伙人分配比例之和为51%及以上, 从事“中方相对控股”产业的外商投资合伙企业, 中国合伙人的分配比例之和大于任何一方外国合伙人的分配比例。

Issue: The standards set forth by the Examination Draft Measures was not reasonable, such as the requirement that the Chinese partners have the total allocation proportion of 51% or more, and that a FIPE where the Chinese parties hold relative majority of shares must have a total allocation proportion which is be more than that of each of the foreign partners.

main content and feature of the measures15
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures
  • 问题: 将来是否会出台类似的补充规定、细则, 目前无法预期。但在外资合伙企业登记制的原则下, 商务主管部门无法直接参与外资合伙企业的审批, 这可能也是给将来制订细则留下的悬念。

Issue: It is unpredictable now whether similar supplemental regulations will be promulgated in future. Notwithstanding, based on the principle of registration of foreign PE, MOFCOM is unable to involve in the approal of FIPES, which was probably left open to future promulgation of detailed regulations.

main content and feature of the measures16
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures
  • 问题:是否意味着股权投资基金可以无需审批以外资合伙企业的形式设立?

Q: Can equity investment funds be established in the form of FIPE without being examined and approved?

  • 《管理办法》: 国家对外国企业或者个人在中国境内设立以投资为主要业务的合伙企业另有规定的, 依照其规定。

因此, 对于以投资为主要业务(包括股权投资)的外资合伙企业, 其仍受到其他相关规定的限制和约束。

The Measures: If other regulations provide for the establishment of PE in China, as established by foreign enterprises or individuals, which mainly engage in investment businesses, such regulations shall be observed. Therefore, as for a FIPE mainly engaging in investment businesses (including equity investment), it shall still be limited and subject to other relevant regulations.

main content and feature of the measures17
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of the Measures
  • 资本、出资和融资

Capital, Capital Contribution and Financing

    • 三资企业:以公司制形式设立的三资企业有注册资本和投资总额的概念。

FIE: FIE incorporated in the form of a company has registered capital and total investment amount.

    • 合伙企业:合伙人认缴出资和实际出资。普通合伙人可以用货币、实物、知识产权、土地使用权或者其他财产权利出资, 也可以用劳务出资, 但有限合伙人不得以劳务出资。

PE: subscribed capital and actual capital of the partners. A GP can contribute its capital in cash, in kind, by way of IP, land use right or other property rights, or by way of labor service. But a LP shall not make capital contribution by way of labor service.

main content and feature of the measures18
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 《送审稿》:外国合伙人以货币出资的, 应为可自由兑换的外币。经审批机关批准, 外国合伙人可以用其从中国境内举办的其他企业获得的人民币利润, 或者以这些企业转股和清算所得等合法获得的人民币出资。

The Draft Measures: Capital contribution by foreign partners in cash shall be convertible foreign currency. After approval by the approval authority, foreign partners can make capital contribution by using RMB profits drawn from other enterprises in China set up by them, or RMB incomes from equity transfer and liquidation of such enterprises.

main content and feature of the measures19
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 《送审稿》:外商投资合伙企业的出资额, 是指为设立企业, 在工商行政管理机关登记的合作各方认缴的、除劳务出资之外的出资额之和。外商投资合伙企业的出资额一般不得减少。如因生产经营规模变化等原因确需减少的, 须经审批机关批准。

The Draft Measures: The amount of capital contribution of a FIPE means the sum of the capital subscribed by all the partners (excluding labor service) which is registered with the Registration Authority for establishment of such enterprise. Generally, the amount of the FIPE shall not be reduced. If necessary due to change of production and business scale, the reduction shall be approved by the approval authority.

main content and feature of the measures20
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 《送审稿》: 外商投资合伙企业的投资总额的核定, 根据其出资额的数额, 参照中外合资经营企业的注册资本与投资总额的比例规定办理。

The Draft Measures: The total investment amount of a FIPE shall be examined and determined based on its amount of capital contribution by reference to the regulations in proportion to the registered capital and total investment amount of Sino-foreign Equity Joint Venture Enterprises.

main content and feature of the measures21
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 《送审稿》:除以劳务出资外, 合伙人一般应当从颁发批准证书之日起90天内一次缴清合伙协议约定的出资。

The Draft Measures: Except for labor service, generally, the partners shall pay its capital stipulated in the partnership agreement in a lump sum within 90 days after issuance of the approval certificate.

main content and feature of the measures22
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 《管理办法》:外国企业或者个人用于出资的货币应当是可自由兑换的外币, 也可以是依法获得的人民币。

The Measures: Currency contributed by foreign partners in cash shall be convertible foreign currency or RMB legally obtained by the foreign partners.

main content and feature of the measures23
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 虽然《送审稿》对于外资合伙企业的“投资总额”作出规定, 但《管理办法》未采纳此概念。

Although the Draft Measures provided the total investment amount of FIPE, the Measures did not include such concept.

  • 《送审稿》限制外国合伙人以劳务进行出资。《管理办法》未采纳此观点。

The Draft Measures restrict foreign partners from making capital contribution by way of labor service, but the Measures removed such restrictions.

main content and feature of the measures24
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 与《送审稿》相比, 《管理办法》并未限制外国投资人用于出资的人民币来源, 而仅仅是要求“依法获得”。但由于中国外汇管理制度的限制, 除了境内取得的人民币利润、投资转让、清算所得的人民币资金之外, 外国投资人通过其他途径合法取得人民币资金的渠道非常有限, 原则上外国投资人转让境内资产、股权取得的收益应当立即结汇汇出境外。

Compared with the Draft Measures, the Measures did not set out restrictions on sources of RMB capital contribution of foreign investors, but only require such RMB be legally obtained. Subject to the restrictions under the foreign exchange control system of the PRC, besides the RMB profits drawn in China and RMB incomes from equity transfer and liquidation, the foreign investors have limited avenues for obtaining RMB capital through other legal means. In principle, foreign investors shall promptly settle and remit abroad the foreign exchange derived from the earnings arising out of transfer of assets and equity in China.

main content and feature of the measures25
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 《送审稿》规定, 合伙人对外资合伙企业的出资额未经批准不得减少。《管理办法》取消了此项限制。依照《合伙企业法》, 合伙人按照合伙协议的约定或者经全体合伙人决定,可以增加或者减少对合伙企业的出资。

The Draft Measures provided that the partners shall not reduce the amount of capital contributed to the FIPE without approval. The Measures did not include such a provision. According to the Partnership Enterprise Law, partners can increase or reduce the capital contribution of a FIPE based on the partnership agreement or the decision of all the partners.

main content and feature of the measures26
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 《送审稿》规定了合伙人的缴付出资期限(颁发批准证书之日起90日内), 这一规定突破了《合伙企业法》, 也改变了合伙企业出资灵活性的特点, 因此在《管理办法》未采用此项规定。

The Draft Measures set forth the schedule for capital contribution by the partners (within 90 days after issuance of the approval certificate), which exceeds the scope of the Partnership Enterprise Law and also changes the flexibility of capital contribution as a feature of PE, so such provision was not included under the Measures.

main content and feature of the measures27
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 问题: 外资合伙企业没有投资总额概念, 其外汇额度如何设定?

Q: Without the concept of total investment amount for the FIPE, how is the foreign exchange quota established?

main content and feature of the measures28
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 目前缺乏实践和法规细则的依据, 我们理解应当以外资合伙企业的认缴出资为限, 授予外资合伙企业的外汇额度, 但也不排除为了限制外汇流动, 而仅仅以外国投资人的出资部分为限授予外汇额度(可能性较小)。

Currently, there lacks a guideline both in practice and by detailed regulation. We understand that the foreign exchange quota shall be limited to the subscribed capital contribution of the FIPE. It is also possible (although less likely) that, in order to restrict the flow of foreign exchange, the foreign exchange quota will be limited to the capital contribution made by the foreign investors.

main content and feature of the measures29
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 问题: 三资企业可以在投资总额和注册资本的差额(“投注差”)范围内举借外债或者筹集境内银行借款。但外资合伙企业不存在投注差的概念, 是否意味着其无法举借资金?

Q: FIEs can borrow foreign loans or raise money from domestic banks within the scope of the difference between the total investment amount and the registered capital (“Borrowing Limitation”). While the FIPE do not have the concept of a Borrowing Limitation, how do such enterprises go about borrowing money?

main content and feature of the measures30
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 外债只能在外汇管理局授予的外汇额度内进行。境内人民币借款在实践中容易突破“投注差”的限制, 但取决于贷款人的实践操作。

Foreign loans can only be borrowed within the scope of the foreign exchange quota granted by the administration of foreign exchange. Domestic RMB loans may easily exceed the Borrowing Gap limit, as long as the borrower provides sufficient security to the lender’s satisfaction.

  • 《管理办法》与《合伙企业法》的进一步衔接

Closer Connection between The Measures and The Partnership Enterprise Law

    • 《管理办法》未突破《合伙企业法》的规定, 只是在其基础上就外资合伙企业作出了补充性规定; 同时, 《管理办法》未作规定的, 依照《中华人民共和国合伙企业登记管理办法》和国家有关规定执行。

The Measures did not exceed the scope of the Partnership Enterprise Law, but only supplement the provisions on FIPE based on the Partnership Enterprise Law. It also specified that if there is no provisions therein, the Administrative Measures on PRC Partnership Enterprise Registrationandthe relevant PRC laws shall be implemented.

main content and feature of the measures37
三. 《管理办法》的主要内容和特点 Main Content and Feature of The Measures
  • 《管理办法》条文相比《送审稿》大幅减少, 可以预期在实践中会出现大量有关外资合伙企业如何适用的问题(包括工商主管部门、商务主管部门、外汇管理部门之间的协调), 而这些问题无法简单的通过《合伙企业法》条文予以解决, 因此相关部门有可能会出台相应的配套文件。

The number of articles of the Measures were largely reduced compared with the Draft Measures. It is expected that numerous problems will arise in practice regarding the implementation of PE (including the coordination between the administration of commerce and the administration of foreign exchange), and such problems can hardly be resolved solely in reliance of the provisions of the Partnership Enterprise Law. Therefore, the relevant departments are likely to promulgate corresponding supplemental files.
