Foreign-founded Consulting Company Registration
With the upgrading and transformation of the enterprises in China, the consulting enterprises providing updated information and solutions become a new driver for economic development and are supported by the PRC industry policies. The consulting service industry is greatly benefited by inclusion in the most influential tax reform in China, i.e. “levying value-added tax in lieu of business tax”, which greatly mitigate the tax burden of the industry. As compared with other enterprises, the setting-up requirements and approval procedures of a consulting service enterprise are more simplified and thus it is well-received by investors.
