Setup Office in China

Opt for a flexible solution by creating a sales office which allows foreign companies to carry out commercial activities and marketing in China with more freedom.

How to create or setup a sales office in China

The creation of a sales office has the principal objective of establishing commercial representation without financial or legal restrictions. It requires the involvement of three different parties:

  • The foreign company, who decides the characteristics of the sales office, i.e. its architectural properties, location, size;
  • A representative of the foreign company in China; and
  • The local partner, called a PEO (Professional Employment Organization).

The foreign company remains responsible for running the sales office effectively, and must ensure that the installment of its employees in China is carried out under the best possible conditions.

Why choose a sales office in China?

  • No minimum capital is required;
  • Particularly interesting tax levels compared to other options;
  • A reduced set-up time;
