Setting up a Representative Office in China
When a foreign company contemplates about entering the Chinese market, it may first engage in activities such as business liaisons, market research, product promotion, and perhaps further, quality control, technology transfer and other legally permissible activities in China. In this case, a representative office (RO) is an effective vehicle for foreign investors to carry out preliminary interactions with the Chinese market. A RO is easy to set up and requires no registered capital, it's not a form of foreign direct investment (FDI) in China, and therefore cannot involve in operational matters, nor can it issue official invoices, or receiving payments in RMB. The only requirement is that the parent company must be established for at least 2 years.
The name of the RO must follow the format of "Parent Enterprise Name" + "City Name" + "Representative Office". The address of your representative office will be submitted in the application and it must be located in a commercial building.
