As a foreigner, how do I start up a physical business in China? Is there a general procedure to follow?

Well it depends on what type of company that you wish to set up of course.

To have a physical presence in China that could be in a office or shop or possibly a gym there is a simple procedure to follow:

Step 1 : Location of course is very important picking a great place to set up your shop or office ( I might be biased but I think Shanghai is a great place and also for foreigners and also a very easy place to live)

Step 2 : Depending on the type of company that you want to set up in China getting some Legal Advice would go a long way, as the Chinese legal system and Company regulations could be quite complicated if you not in the know.

Step 3 : Once you know the legal part of setting up an office in China, then can establish a China Limited Liability Company called a wholly-owned foreign Enterprise (WOFE).

A WOFE is a limited liability company and it’s quite easy to set up if you have the right company to help you in this regard.

Step 4 : In some instances you will need to rent a physical office or in case of a restaurant find a suitable location to establish the restaurant

Step 5 : China Marketing is really important in any country and in China will be in Chinese and in China they use different types of marketing tools for social media ( there is no Facebook,Twitter or even Google ) so for your new business in China would promote it on Chinese social media like Weibo, Baidu and Wechat to mention a few.
