1.The concept of a wholly foreign owned enterprise
Wholly foreign owned enterprise(WFOE) is overseas investor (include HongKong,Macao£¬Taiwan investors) invested in China and total capital investment invested by the foreign investment enterprise according to the law of the People's Republic of China and other relevant laws. Foreign investors refers to the foreign enterprise personal or partners (including Hong Kong Macao Taiwan).

2.The advantages of setting up a WFOE

(2). Have independent management can be formal, carrying out business, not as the representative office without restrictions
(3).Take RMB as income to provide customer RMB invoice.
(4).Transform RMB profits to dollar and pay to the parent  firm.
(5). Can be directly employ people in China
(6). To protect their intellectual property and proprietary technology.
(7).Don’t  need  share  the profits with other party.

3.Company Name
In China,there is certain registriction in company name.In the same industry,not only the company name cannot repeat but also the trade name.Only by the ministry of commerce and industry verify and allowance the name can be valid.There are many factors needed to be considered in naming:for example,’level city’ wording need to go to the regular unit for examination and approval,with a ‘provincial’ need to go to provincial unit for examination and approval,with a ‘China’ need to go to the Chinese ministry of commerce for examination and approval.

4.Registered capital and paid-in capital
Chinese company has requirement in registry capital,the company law lays down that the minimum registry capital is 30 000RMB.Registry different by company’s industry. But determine the capital need to consider following:company name,business scope,import and export right,type of business(production model,trade,consulting service).We suggest: consulting service needs to register more than 100 000,trade model needs to register more than 500 000,production model needs to register more than 1000 000.
You have two choices in registered capitai in place: one is pay at one time, you need to pay in six months after you get the business license;another one is you can pay for serval time after you get the business license, the first time need to pay no less than 20% of registered capital also no less than the minimum of lagal registered capital.You need to pay in 90 days after you get the business license.And the rest capital needed to pay in 5 years after you get the business license.Investment company can pay for several times in 5 years. The fixed number of years determine in registered capital,the less time you pay will be the less cost in capital verification. Registered capital can be invest by money,goods,equipment, technology.
PS£ºChina has strict requirement in registered capital, you need to pay in legal time after fi-nish company registry, or you may break the rule of Regulations of the People’s Republic ofChina on Registration Administration of Companies and the law of ente-rprises with foreign investment.
