How to create 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;
  • 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?

Operating in China through a sales office is a solution with multiple advantages:

  • No minimum capital required;

  • Particularly interesting tax levels compared to other options;

  • A reduced set-up time;

  • More flexibility in the choice of office location;

  • A structure adapted to the sale of merchandise and service provisions.

What Are the Conditions?

  • To have at least one employee who acts as the representative of the foreign company in China.

  • To pay the office rent, the representative’s salary and all other administrative and operational costs. 

  • All assets generated from running the office must be repatriated from China. Any assets kept in China must be managed by the local partner.
