Shenzhen Company Registration  Requirements
1. Shenzhen company format: Shenzhen government has a name format for anyone who wants to setup a company in China, the format is: City name + trade name + business scope+ limited. If using the province name or even using “China” instead of the city name, the name should be applied in the province authority or Beijing. And only Chinese company names are officially used, while English names are for reference only. Any names are subject to the approval of relevant authority.

2. Shenzhen company members: The positions of Legal Representative, Executive Director, General manager and Supervisor can be taken by either Chinese or foreigners. The Legal Representative should be acted by Executive Director or General manager.

Investors can decide the amount of registered capital by themselves. And the capital  could be paid up within 30 years from the date of issue of Business License.

4. Shenzhen company business scope: One of the most important issues is to define the business activities of the company.
