Representative Office Incorporation in China

Representative Offices (RO) are the cheapest, fastest and easiest way to incorporate in China, compared to WFOE and JV. However, such advantages come with several weak points you should be aware of before choosing to set up an RO. Let’s have a closer look at their characteristics:

Hong Kong Company Incorporation

Hong Kong, an internationally respected business hub, is known for being an efficient corporate vehicle for setting up business in Asia. Incorporation of a company in Hong Kong allows foreign investors to gain access to the huge market of Mainland China, and is often viewed as “Gateway to China”.
