Shenzhen company annual inspection is mandatory for all companies incorporated in Shenzhen.  According to Company Law of the People's Republic of China, Regulations of the People's Republic of China on Administration of Registration of Companies and Regulations of Annual Inspection for Enterprises, from January 1st to June 30th every year, China government takes an Annual Inspection on Foreign Investment Enterprises in nationwide. Enterprises that fails to abide by such legal inspection will incur adverse impact and severe punishment.

Annual Inspection in China
Foreign invested enterprises (FIEs) in China are required to undergo an annual cooperative inspection jointly conducted by several governmental departments of the State Council. These inspections are designed to ensure that FIEs conducting businesses in China are fulfilling the legal commitments they make to each of the departments. Each year from March to the end of June, the annual inspection is jointly hosted by the following governmental departments:

(1) Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM);
(2) Ministry of Finance (MoF);
(3) Administration of Industry and Commerce (AIC);
(4) State Administration of Taxation (SAT);
(5) State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE);
(6) Statistical Bureau.

Note that the annual inspection required by the SAT is only a review of the tax registration certificate. The inspections of AIC and SAFE are usually more complicated than others and may require additional separate procedures being conducted. Regional variances also exist. Wholly foreign owned enterprises (WFOEs) with branches should pay special attention to ensuring that their branches also undergo annual inspection.
