Establishing trading companies in China and obtaining import-export licenses
The new issue of the China Briefing monthly magazine is now up and online. It is an examination of the establishment of trading companies – otherwise known as “FICEs” (Foreign Invested Commercial Enterprises) – with full details of the application procedures. The issue also explains the myriad of things that investors often forget – details such as the importance of properly planning the registered capital amount (it’s not a case of “minimum”), dealing with customs and VAT payer regsitrations – these affect your up front investment – and other tips and comments on matters such as the articles of association, the role of the labor union, and so on. Coupled with this is a new feature linked to this blog – regional updates on particular Chinese cities. There’s not so much published about specific regions – and at China Briefing we recognize the importance of the second tier cities.
Subscription to the magazine is free and you can download it from the main site at www.china-briefing.com as well as get access to all archived issues.
