Dongguan company registration refers to register a representative office (RO) in Donguan. Dongguan is a prefecture-level city in central Guangdong Province of South China. An important industrial city in the Pearl River Delta, Dongguan borders the provincial capital of Guangzhou to the north, Shenzhen to the south, and the Pearl River to the west. Dongguan is a major manufacturing hub. The largest industrial sector is manufacturing of electronics and communications equipment.

Representative office of foreign enterprises, also known as permanent representative offices of foreign (regional) enterprises, is an institution established by a foreign enterprise to conduct business liaison in China on behalf of its parent company.

The registration procedure and follow-up management for s RO is simple and fast. If the chief representative is overseas, he/she can apply for a working visa in Dongguan. Therefore, it is a good solution to set up a representative office for some foreign-funded enterprises that have just entered the Chinese market.

Requirements on RO registration
1. Company name
In China, there are special stipulations on the name of RO by the government. The name format is: Incorporation place of foreign enterprise + Chinese name of foreign enterprise + Dongguan Representative Office

2. Registered capital
The representative office is a business liaison agency, not a legal entity. Therefore, there will be no requirements on the registered capital.

3. Function of a RO
The Chinese government encourages foreign investors to set up representative offices, so that they can develop partners, conduct research for the market, train talents before they go into business.

However, it is a violation of the regulations that some Chinese people register companies overseas and set up representative offices in China, and then use the representative office to buy duty-free cars.
