Affiliated Registration Address and Office Rental

The first step of running your business in China is to register your company, and the first thing first is to choose a registration address for your company. However, many foreign companies do not pay enough attention to choosing a Chinese registered address, without realizing that the registration address can actually affect more.  A well-chosen address will not only make your company compliant, but also brings you other benefits. China has standard tax rates, but some cities, thanks to local policies, offer rates lower than the standard. Choosing your business location strategically based on these rates can lead to greater profits.

Why Should I Choose a Affiliated Registration Address?

When registering a company and obtaining the business license in China, the government will require a registered address for your company. This address usually needs to be a real, verifiable physical address, which may be verified by government. At the same time, this address will also be needed to government communication, legal document transfer, and taxation registration. In addition, when opening the corporate bank account, the bank will also require on-site visit to the address for information verification and Know Your Customer (KYC) process. As a result, virtual addresses, such as P.O. Box, are usually not accepted.

In order to save budget in the beginning stage, especially for small and start-up companies who do not have a permanent office location, using an affiliated registration address becomes a popular choice. Let’s see how Hongda can help you choose an ideal registration address for you!


What Are the Advantages of Using an Affiliated Registration Address?

The affiliated registration address is a special address registered with the local Industrial and Commercial Authorities, which is a valid and legal address for the purpose of registering a company. However, you cannot actually operate in this address, making it an ideal choice for companies who does not require a physical address to operate, such as digital marketing and ecommerce.

In order to encourage entrepreneurships and reduce their costs, the government now supports various localities to release registration conditions for newly registered enterprises and promote residence registration reforms such as ‘multiple licenses at one address’ and ‘cluster registration’. The company owners can choose to settle in centralized office areas, business incubation platforms, makerspaces, entrepreneurial cafes, innovation workshops, and innovation technology parks that have been registered with the local industrial and commercial bureau, and use their address to register the company.

Choosing affiliated registration addresses can bring you the following advantages

  • Legal registration: an affiliated registration address allows a company to meet legal registration address requirements, so that you don’t need to worry about compliance problems.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: for businesses that don’t need actual office space, using an affiliated address can significantly reduce costs.
  • Convenient mail and communication: affiliated registration addresses often provide mail receiving and forwarding services to ensure that businesses do not miss important public letters and documents.
  • Enhance corporate reputation: an affiliated registration address in a well-known business center or industry park may enhance the professional image of the company.
  • Flexibility: for companies that may need to change office locations frequently or expand their business, an affiliated registration address provides greater flexibility than changing physical addresses.
  • Administrative support services: some address providers also offer additional administrative and secretarial services such as phone answering, conference room booking, etc.
