Dongguan business setup requirements prepared by Tannet aims at facilitate people who want to invest and set up company in Dongguan. Dongguan is an important industrial and manufacturing base in China. It is also the largest global manufacturing and supplying base of computer parts and peripheries.

More and more international small businesses are setting up their own presence in China to take advantage of this vast oriental market. However, given the alien nature of local regulations and business environment in China, it is critical to be proactive and fully prepared before you take the strategic move to set up your own presence in China.

1. Choice of business presence
Before starting up a business in China, you have to know what are the options. Foreign Investors generally establish a business presence in China in one of five modes: Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise (WFOE); Representative Office; Foreign Invested Partnership Enterprises (FIPE).

2. Determination of business scope
China National Development and Reform Commission may prohibit, restrict, permit or encourage your business set-up based on your business categorization and scope. Hence it is critical to carefully define your business scope so as to be permitted or encouraged to set up the presence.

3. Selection of office location
China abandoned its preferential tax rate for investments of foreign companies from January 1st 2008. However, some areas still offer local preferential policies for foreign investors in terms of land leasing/procurement, staff recruitment and management, local tax etc.

4. Confirmation of registered capital
The Chinese government requires certain minimum registered capital for various types of businesses. However, local Industry and Commerce Administrations may decide on your minimum registered capital based on their judgement of your business scope and operation scale. You need to confirm with local government agencies the minimum registered capital through local contacts before taking any other actions in case they require an amount far above your financial resources available for the China operation.

Business setup in Dongguan is a big project, which requires financial and time commitments, business management knowledge and China expertise. Identifying a competent agent to manage the complex registration process will be a cost-effective and time-saving way to avoid potential pitfalls.
