Establishment of Operations

Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprises (WFOE)

Sensing massive market potential, many foreign companies seek to establish a wholly owned foreign enterprise in China. A WFOE structure permits foreign investors to establish and operate enterprises in China without the participation of a Chinese partner.

Relying on our in-depth knowledge and experience, BJCG is able to help companies plan, manage and implement such projects, ensuring that our clients’ needs are met and business goals realised.

BJCG can help you:

  • Gather and analyse market information prior to entry and conduct feasibility studies;
  • Advise on structuring your business and selecting a location;
  • Conduct business negotiations on your behalf;
  • Gain necessary government approval and complete WFOE establishment;
  • Communicate with local management on your behalf, including representing you during board meetings;
  • Provide accounting, legal, HR and IT services through our associate offices.

  • Completing the necessary procedures to register the representative office;
  • Helping to select a suitable location;
  • Negotiating rental and other contracts on the client’s behalf;

  • Advise on the FICE’s structure;
  • Assistance in selecting a suitable location;
  • Help in negotiating rental and other contracts;
