If the word “China” is within the company name, it is required to be pre-approved by ICAB at national level in Beijing.


Business Scope


Business scope is one of the most important issues in FIE registration application, divided into the licensed business item and the general business item. Licensed business item means a pre-approval is needed before business license application. General business item means ordinary item which can be registered in Bureau of Industry and Commerce directly. Guangzhou Foreign Invested Enterprise can only conduct business within its approved business scope, which ultimately appears on the business license. There is some connection between business scope and register capital. Generally speaking, larger register capital, more business items can be approved.
