Setting up a company in China is a highly demanding process and many foreign investors feel relieved once this phase is behind them. But the administrative work doesn’t stop there.
Companies, including foreign invested enterprises (FIEs) and representative offices (ROs), are obliged to comply with many administrative duties, including regular reporting, filing and registrations. Being unaware of such duties is not an excuse for Chinese authorities, and neglect can lead to serious consequences, including penalties and even cancelation of the business licence or registration certificate.
This webinar will provide a complete picture of the administrative duties – including content, procedures and deadlines – required for FIEs and ROs to comply with Chinese legislation and regulations.
After attending this webinar you will:
- Know how to file an annual report and register changes with State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC);
- Be aware of an FIE/ROs tax reporting obligations; and
- Understand the penalties for non-compliance.
