MGI World MGI Worldwide White paper Establishing a Company in China: A guide for overseas investors screen shot

Establishing a business in China is not as straightforward as most overseas investors into China initially anticipate and the process comes with its own unique challenges and complexities. Understanding the corporate environment is vital and to do so, investors need a clear understanding of their business model as well as the ever-changing body of governmental regulations.

Multiple government bodies are involved in the process and the overall procedure can take anywhere from two to even as long as nine months depending on the type of entity that needs to be established and proper compliance with the procedural elements being met.
