Abstract: Organizations seeking expansion for their operations in China have a number of options to facilitate business development. Both domestic and foreign invested companies consider branch offices to be a popular investment vehicle for fast expansion in China due to their comparable low incorporation requirements including no capital requirements and easy maintenance, but allow for a formal representation. The information in this publication is not exhaustive, but aims to provide entrepreneurs with an in-depth understanding of the purposes China based branch offices serve and the advantages and limitations of the different types of branch offices and set-up of administrative organizations.
