Beijing business setup (WFOE) is one kind of business incorporation in Beijing. WFOE refers to wholly foreign owned enterprise, which is a business entity formed in China entirely with foreign capital. It is totally under foreign control and does not have any formal Chinese ownership participation. A WFOE is set up as limited liability entity and represents separate legal persons and is taxed according to local legislation. The following are the basics of registering a WFOE in Beijing.

Brief Introduction to WFOE
The Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise, abbreviated WFOE, is a common investment vehicle for mainland Beijing -based business. The unique feature of a WFOE is that involvement of a mainland Chinese investor is not required, unlike most other investment vehicles. WFOEs are limited-liability corporations organized by foreign nationals and capitalized with foreign funds. This can give greater control over the business venture in mainland Beijing and avoid a multitude of problematic issues which can potentially result from dealing with a domestic joint venture partner.

Advantages of WFOE in Beijing

2. Beijing is an important capital and global power city, and one of the world's leading centers for politics, economy and business, finance, education, culture, innovation and technology, architecture, language, and diplomacy.
3. Beijing is home to the headquarters of most of China's largest state-owned companies and houses the largest number of Fortune Global 500 companies in the world, as well as the world's four biggest financial institutions.
