Business Seminar on New Representative Office Regulations in China

Shanghai, China | April 26, 2011

The environment for Representative Offices ("RO") in China has changed since the beginning of March this year. New regulations have been issued by the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC), the Ministry for Public Security and the State Administration of Taxation (SAT), strengthening the registration on the one hand and the tax collection on the other. During this evening seminar, the new regulations and their effects on Representative Offices will be reviewed.
The areas affected by the changes in question include:

  • Legal requirements in establishing and maintaining ROs;
  • New administrative limitations;
  • Selection of taxation methods;
  • The annual compliance and accounting requirements;
  • Associated tax burdens;
  • Business restructuring – should I convert my ROs into WFOEs?
