To facilitate people who want to invest and register company in Shanghai, here is

an introduction of Types of business presence in China:

Before starting up a business in China, you have to know what are the options. Foreign

Investors generally establish a business presence in China in one of five modes:

Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise (WFOE); Representative Office; Foreign Invested

Partnership Enterprises (FIPE); Joint Venture and Hong Kong Holding Company.

Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise (WFOE) is a Limited liability company wholly owned

by the foreign investor it can generate income

by the foreign investor. It can generate income, pay tax in China and it's profit

could be repatriate back to investor's home country. Any enterprise in China which

is 100 percent owned by a foreign company or companies can be called as WFOE. No.

minimum registered capital is required for WFOEs with scope of business of

consulting, Trading, retailing, information technology etc. in China. There are

minimum registered capital still required for some industries for instance: Banking,

Forwarding etc Since China still maintains foreign currency control policy, it's

still advisable to choose registered capital within RMB 100,000 ~ RMB 500,000 as

the minimum registered capital. Companies can now determine how much capital will

be required to maintain their operations and must simply ensure that they meet those

targets within a period of 10 years.

Representative Office (RO) is a Liaison Office of it's parent company. It requires

no registered capital. It's activities would be: product or service promotion,

market research of it's parent company's business, Quality Control liaison office

etc in China. RO generally is prohibited to generate any revenue nor generating

contracts with local businesses in China.

Joint Venture (JV) is a Limited liability company formed between Chinese investor

and Foreign investor. The parties agree to create a entity by both contributing

equity, and they then share in the revenues, expenses, and control of the enterprise.

JV usually been used by foreign investor to engage the so called restricted in areas

such like: Education, Mining, Hospital etc.

Hong Kong Company usually been used as a Special Purpose vehicle (SPV) to invest

Mainland China. Hong Kong is one of the quickest locations to Incorporate a business.

Although a HK company is not a legal entity in Mainland China (Mainland China and

Hong Kong, See Wiki 1 country, 2 systems), lots foreign investors, especially

investors from Europe and North America still chose to setting up a Hong Kong company

as SPV to invest China.

After China's entry to WTO, most industries in China welcome foreign investment,

WFOE setting up in China becomes the first option of foreign investment's entity

structures instead of Rep. Office setting up in China At the mean time, for tax

purpose, effective licensing system etc more and more investors use Hong Kong as

the holding company to invest China mainland, using this offshore company to hold

their operations in China.
