Selection of office space in China

To open a business in China, a prerequisite is the presence of a legal address – an office. When registering a business, an office is required, as China tries to ensure the security of businesses and prevent the emergence of overnight businesses. And the presence of a real corporate office reduces the likelihood of such a situation.

Companies can operate under a simplified tax regime and under a tax regime with VAT.

The physical address requirements for companies operating under the simplified scheme are less stringent than for companies operating under the VAT taxation scheme. For a company operating under a simplified system, it is not necessary to have its own office in a separate room. Such a company can rent part of the office space – a table.
Table rental prices start at RMB 600 per month.

Companies operating under the VAT taxation system need a separate room or area in the common office, where, if necessary, you can put partitions and organize a separate entrance.

Depending on the set of licenses for office premises in the PRC, different requirements are imposed.

The minimum cost of renting an office space for a company operating under the standard taxation scheme with VAT starts from 1,000 RMB per month.

Depending on the region, the cost of renting an office may vary, but on average from 1000 RMB.

However, it should be noted that different cities in China have different requirements for the premises allowed for renting a company’s office.

In some cities and provinces, this must be a room in a building declared as a commercial one, in other regions, the company can be registered for the apartment in which you or your employees live.
