Webinar Series: Choosing Your China Structure
November 1, 2018 - November 8, 2018
When establishing your presence in China, taking the right first steps will help you ensure a smooth market entry and avoid regulatory obstacles in the long run. This webinar series will help you make the right initial decisions when it comes to structuring your business in China.
Session I: Should I Set Up in China, Hong Kong, or Both?
November 1st, 2018| 5:00 PM – 5:30 PM HKT
One of the first questions you’re likely to face is: where in China should I establish my business? Given the ease and advantages of registering a company in Hong Kong, investors often consider setting up there in addition to, or instead of, the mainland. But what are the benefits and drawbacks of this type of setup? And which location is better suited to your specific business activities?
As Business Development Manager at Fiducia Management Consultants, Florian Braunsteiner has helped hundreds of European, Australian, and American companies make the right decision when it comes to the location and structure of their China business setup. He looks forward to making your decision process easier by walking you through key considerations and recommendations.
- Comparing the company registration process in Hong Kong and China
- Strategic advantages/disadvantages of including a Hong Kong Limited in your setup
- Case studies by sector: manufacturing, trading/purchasing office, retail and distribution
Session II: Should I Establish a WFOE or a Rep Office?
November 8th, 2018| 5:00 PM – 5:30 PM HKT
Another dilemma you’re likely to face is what type of legal entity to establish in China. Because of China’s complex regulations regarding foreign-invested corporate structures, this decision is often harder than expected. This webinar will help you clarify whether a wholly foreign owned enterprise (China WFOE) or a representative office (RO) is best suited to the strategy and activities you have in mind.
