Avoidable Pitfalls When Operating In China

Companies starting operations in China often encounter challenges that could have been prevented with the right local partner:

Communication and Language Barriers

English abilities can be limited, leading to miscommunications, incorrect documentation, and contractual disputes. Our bilingual team bridges these gaps seamlessly.

Regulatory and Statutory Compliance

China’s complex bureaucratic environment leads to missteps on permits, licensing, HR policies, and other compliance aspects. Our experts ensure you remain compliant.

Guanxi and Local Relationships

As outsiders, foreign companies lack the connections and relationships needed to get things done efficiently. We leverage our insider guanxi and partnerships on your behalf.

Practical Knowledge Gaps

There are many operational intricacies foreign companies are unaware of. We fill knowledge gaps based on on-the-ground experience managing China initiatives daily.

Navigating China’s Bureaucracy Seamlessly

The bureaucratic environment in China is notoriously convoluted for foreign companies to navigate alone. Licensing, permits, financial compliance, HR policies, and other areas often trip them up.

Corporation China has over 15 years of experience successfully steering foreign companies through China’s bureaucracy. Our local experts handle all aspects of compliance and regulatory procedures seamlessly on your behalf.

This allows you to focus on business strategy and operations while we mitigate your risk and handle time-consuming administrative processes expertly. Partner with us for peace of mind that you are operating legally and correctly in China from day one.
