In addition, a rep office cannot employ Chinese personnel directly, but must hire them through a contract with an authorized foreign services company. The different permitted business scopes of these various investment structures may allow companies to conduct more business in China. All of the directors of the subsidiary could be in the home country. Is a rep office still worth it? Spot checks The notice states that local SAIC branches will perform spot checks on rep offices within three months after the registration certificates are issued.

      Once a foreign company submits all required documentation, registration with SAIC generally takes one month to complete, and follow-up registrations with other bureaus often take another month. A subsidiary is a separate legal entity from the parent, although owned by the parent corporation. Existing rep offices that have more than four representatives may not appoint additional representatives, though the notice does not specify whether such offices must reduce this number to comply with the new rules. The frequency of rebellions, riots, and civil strife in Qing Taiwan is evoked by the common saying "every three years an uprising; every five years a rebellion".

      It has nothing to do with One-China policy at all. The required materials differ slightly depending on the city but generally include a government application form, an appointment letter for the chief representative and other representatives, a copy of the local office lease, an apostilled certified by the applicable PRC consulate to be authentically notarized certificate of incorporation, an apostilled letter of good standing from the bank with which the foreign company normally does business, and other supporting documents. One local SAIC official in Beijing indicated that reduction would likely be unnecessary unless a rep office applies to SAIC to make changes to its registered representatives. ROs are not allowed to directly engage in operational activities, RO can't issue official invoices, nor receiving payments from it's clients. The rep office must also apply for work permits and visas for any foreign representatives and must apply to a local bank to open foreign currency or renminbi accounts. News units establishing news websites to engage in news publishing operations shall report to the State Council Information Office or the provincial, autonomous region or independent municipality people's government information office.
