Different Business Structures in China


Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprises

This is a Chinese limited liability company that foreign investors own. One of the main benefits of forming this type of company is the principle of limited liability. The liability of the shareholders and directors is limited to only a particular amount.

China Free Zone Company

When forming a China Free Zone Company, the foreign investor can invest in special economic zones (SEZ). Usually, foreign investors would consider forming this company if they have to set up an export-oriented unit (EoU).

China Equity Venture Company

Usually, this company is also known as the EJV or equity joint venture company. Usually, this form of company would be formed by a foreign investor. Apart from having a foreign investor, a Chinese shareholder would have a certain percentage of equity interest in the company.

Branch Office

Usually, branch offices are not allowed for companies reregistered outside China. Only companies formed as wholly foreign-owned enterprises (WFOE) or China Equity Venture companies can establish a branch office in China.

Representative Office

The government allows foreign companies to open different representative offices in China. Usually, prior approval is required from the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) to start this form of office.

Offshore Company

An Off Shore Company is a company that was formed in Hong Kong SAR. This company can be formed as Hong Kong is still a part of China. However, the tax levied in Hong Kong differs from that in China.
