Deacons has updated our concise and informative guide to Setting up a representative office in the People’s Republic of China.
This guide briefly sets out the law and procedures relating to the registration and operation of a resident representative office (“representative office”) by a foreign enterprise in the People’s Republic of China (“PRC” or “China”). The information contained herein is based upon our working experience with and understanding of relevant PRC legislation which is publicly available as of 17 February 2015. This overview is not intended as an exhaustive discussion of the establishment and operation of a representative office in the PRC, but rather to provide general information for reference purposes. As Chinese law is evolving rapidly, readers are advised to seek further information and legal advice when considering the establishment of a representative office in the PRC.
