Representative offices in China? Probably no.

I wrote a post recommending foreign companies to go for LLCs (WFOEs) instead of rep. office in China. Today, I came across a similar post entitled 'Representative Offices In China. Things Just Got More Difficult/Expensive.....' on China Law Blog. I think the post echos my points. Why not do business legally and wisely in China?

Yes, you got there first Hang. Why any decent company would even try to operate illegally is beyond me. Even if you are "illegally minded", why take such risks in such an important market which is going to be a very important market for a long time ??

A China representative office is an office of a foreign enterprise set up in China for liaison with Chinese businesses and customers on behalf of its parent company. It must be emphasized that a representative office may not carry out direct revenue earning business activities. Thanks a lot.
