Guangzhou WFOE registry

The Concept of WFOE
The WFOE means the foreign investors (including Hong Kong and Macao investors) established the enterprises within Chinese territory, in accordance with the PRC Wholly Foreign Funded Enterprise’s Law, with capital provided solely by the foreign investor. The foreign investors could be the foreign enterprises, individuals or partners. (Including Hong Kong’s and Macao's).

COMPANY’S NAME of WFOE
In China, only Chinese company’s names are officially used, while English company’s names are for reference only. NOT every name will be accepted by the Industrial and Commercial Administrative Bureau (ICAB), known abroad as Company Registry. And in China some sectors need special license. It is important to know that the wording of a company’s name should be in conformity with the registered capital. If a company’s name is in the wording of “international”, “investment”, the registered capital could be as more as RMB 10 million. While “group’’ or “holding” should be more than RMB 30 million (The detailed information depends on the local stipulations). Your company’s name must be distinguished from the others’ if you want it to be accepted by the ICAB.

Overview of WFOE in Guangzhou
A China WFOE (or WFFE) is a business entity formed in China entirely with foreign capital and is under full foreign control and ownership. The WFOE/ WFFE is a Limited liability company wholly owned by the foreign investor(s). In Guangzhou China, WFFE was originally conceived for encouraging manufacturing activities that were either export orientated or introduced advanced technology. WFFE or WFOE gives greater control over the business venture in mainland China and avoid a multitude of problematic issues which can potentially result from dealing with a domestic joint venture partner. Such problems often  include profit not being maximized, leakage of the foreign firm's intellectual property and the potential for joint venture partners to set up in competition against the foreign firm.  However, with China's entry into WTO, these conditions were gradually abolished and the WFFE is increasingly being used for service providers such as a variety of consulting and management services, software development and trading as well.
