Increased control over Representative Offices in China: SCS is providing Swiss SMEs an alternative solution for operation in a steady and fast growing economy
The State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC) and the Ministry of Public Security has jointly announced further controls on the registration of representative institutions of foreign enterprises (RO) that may create negative impacts on the rep office operation in China. For example, on site visits or inspections by the regulatory authorities to the premises of a RO are going to be more frequent. Activities performed beyond the registered scope of a RO will be met with challenges. To apply for the set up of a RO is also going to be more difficult.
To register a wholly foreign owned entity or contract a RO hosting service are the alternatives for those Swiss companies with ambition and intention to benefit from the development of the Chinese market. SCS provides a variety of office spaces starting from open desks to small, middle and large independent office rooms. In particular, we are now offering three independent offices with each 30sqm net.
Located within SCS main premises in Xinzhuang Industry Park of Shanghai, these offices can be an ideal option to make your first step.
