Hainan joint venture registration is one of the legal forms for investors to set up businesses in Hainan. A Joint Venture is a business arrangement in which the participants create a new business entity with an official contractual relationship and share investment and operation expenses, management responsibilities, and profits and losses. In China, a JV is a form of enterprise created through the partnership between foreign and Chinese investors. The joint venture partners share the profits, losses and management of the JV.

Deciding what form of new corporate structure to undertake is crucial for Companies interested in entering the vast Chinese market. For some businesses, Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprises (“WFOE”) may be the best choice, and for others, simply forming a representative office may be the ideal choice. But a joint Venture also has its own advantages.

Types of Joint Venture in China
1. Equity Joint Venture (EJV)
An EJV is a Chinese Limited Liability Company (LLC) shared between a Chinese and a foreign party. Each participant contributes to the venture in financial terms by way of an investment of capital and has a stake in the business. This is similar to the holding of shares in a limited liability company.

2. Cooperative Joint Venture (CJV)
A CJV offers a flexible way to conduct business with a Chinese partner. This legal framework allows individual agreements such as profit sharing, which need not be restricted to the equity contributions. It differs mainly with the Equity Joint Venture in that the foreign investor may repatriate his original investment before the expiration of the Joint Venture.

Advantages of a Joint Venture
(1) Foreign companies can invest in businesses that are restricted by the government to Chinese companies. Certain sectors are reserved only for Chinese entities or JVs.
