Possible Obstacles for Foreign Companies Running Businesses in China

Doing business in China could be very challenging for Foreigners. Here are some possible obstacles that foreign companies may encounter due to Chinese legal system and cultural differences.

  • Different regulations imposed on foreign companies running businesses in China by different government authorities at the country and regional levels: These regulations need to be fully understood to avoid breach of laws and regulations.

  • Government authorities involved with the set-up and running of foreign businesses in China work very differently from those in other countries.

  • There is no single step of company incorporation and business license application. In general, it takes two to four months to obtain all the approvals/certificates/licences on one application.

  • There are complex taxation systems at state and local levels.

  • There are differences in the working styles of Chinese government authorities and foreign companies.

  • There are different perspectives on environmental, cultural and ethical issues, among others.
