China Updates- New Rules on Equity Contributions

New Rules on Equity Contributions
The Ministry of Commerce in China (MOFCOM) published new provisions on equity contributions for Foreign Invested Entities (FIEs). These came into force in October 2012 following 18 months of public discussions. These provisions provide foreign investors with more flexibility in structuring
or restructuring their businesses in China.

Key Points.
(i) Contribution with equity is applicable in (inter alia) the following common situations:

  • incorporation of a new FIE
  • increase of capital to change the equity structure of an FIE.

(ii) The equity used must be free from any encumbrances.
(iii) The equity used is subject to valuation by a PRC-licensed valuer.
(iv) The aggregate value of contribution with equity and othernon-monetary contributions made by all shareholders is limited to 70% of the total registered capital of the Invested Entity.
