China Company Formation | Conpak CPA Limited

China Company Incorporation

Having a vast territory and well-developed manufacturing industry, in recent years China has continuously opened finance, service and trade industries, and significantly reduced the investment entry requirements of foreign enterprises in order to attract more foreign investments. At present, while no need to make paid-in registration capitals and provide bank credit certificates, foreign enterprises only have to set up filing in the regulatory authorities for easy registration.

Industries with Investment Incentives

Foreign investments are encouraged in industries ranging from manufacturing, wholesale and retail, leasing and commercial service, scientific research and technical service, agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry and fisheries, hydro-environment and public utility management, service organisations for the handicapped, elders and children, certain culture and sports, to entertainment.

Industrial and Commercial Annual Report

Foreign invested enterprise shall undergo an industrial and commercial annual report from 1 January to 30 June every year from the following year after the incorporation.

Annual Report of Foreign Investment Enterprise

A foreign investment enterprise shall submit an Annual Report of Foreign Investment Enterprise every year since the next year of its establishment. The report period is generally from January 1 to June 30 (The specific time is subject to the time announced by the Ministry of Commerce each year).

Employment Contract

An employment labour contract must be signed for recruitment in China, and the rights and obligations of both parties shall be stipulated therein. The enterprise shall sign an employment contract with the employee within one month from the start of his/her employment. Labour contracts are classified into employment contracts with a fixed period, labour contracts without a fixed period and employment contracts with a period to complete the prescribed work.
