Mainland China acts as a manufacturing powerhouse for many American companies, producing their products at a competitive price. The majority of the goods exiting these factories, however, face a common issue: quality and safety standards often don’t comply with American FDA regulations and are therefore rendered inadmissible for import into the USA. This is mainly the consequence of miscommunication between those placing the order and those executing its production.

The problem

We always look to  provide the best support to our clients, but due its size, China can be an overwhelming country , so we understand when our clients are hindered to come directly to our office in Shenzhen. Just recently, one of our clients, a paper products manufacturer, was looking into moving part of his manufacturing process to the South West region of China.

Last week, three Incorp China team members and the CEO, Robert Fisch, headed to the Shenzhen tax bureau to help one of our US clients on shuting down their entity in China. When shutting down a foreign company in China, the tax bureau has to issue a “notice of cancellation of tax registration”’ for the Foreign Trade & Economic Cooperation Bureau. This is a rather difficult and time intensive procedure: The company owner, or a representative thereof, has to physically visit the local tax bureau in order to fill out and hand in the requires paperwork. While some documents are in English, the majority of the procedure will necessarily be dealt with in Mandarin. This highly bureaucratic task involves dozens of different forms that are each tailored to the nature of your business as well as the reason for its closure.

Because Chinese bureaucracy and law is of complicated and ever-changing nature. Even more importantly, here, nobody stands a chance doing paperwork over the phone.

In China, Guanxi Can Open Many Doors – And Borders

June 26, 2017 Comments Off on In China, Guanxi Can Open Many Doors – And Borders By The Incorp China Team
Some life lessons are best conveyed through a story. This one is about never underestimating what power an extensive guanxi holds in China.

 

Guanxi is the mandarin term for the network, the connection people form privately and in business relation to one another over a long period of time.

Upholding one’s ‘face’, one’s reputation, making new connections and maintaining them becomes an omnipresent necessity.
