Explore Hainan's Benefits As Your Business Location [Guided Trip]

by Bobby Lee | 15 June 2018


Between July 11-14th 2018 Hongda is running a guided business trip to Hainan for foreign investors who are interested in exploring its many opportunities and benefits.

Interested in joining us? Read on to learn more about the trip, and why it's going to be really useful!

Why Choose Hainan As Your Business Base?

Chairman Xi Jinping has decreed that Hainan is to be transformed into China's largest free trade zone.

This should excite foreign investors who are looking for a company base or a location to open a branch office, as the Hainan authorities are now making great strides to attract your investment by offering generous and exciting incentives with the government's blessing.

Hainan's proximity to SE Asia and Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta means that it's a a great base for companies involved in most businesses.

However, these industries are to be given special focus by the government:

  • Medical clinics and pharmaceutical
  • Agriculture
  • Tourism
  • High-tech, block-chain, e-commerce, and internet
  • Overseas education
  • Gambling / lottery


Attractive benefits For Companies

  • Free office space near Haikou city provided for companies in agriculture and agricultural products, internet, e-commerce, and high-tech industries.

  • Internet and high-tech companies offered reduced VAT of less than 2%.

  • Profit tax reduced for qualifying new businesses.  
    If yearly net profit is 700k RMB or less, profit tax is 10% and the local government returns 4%, so companies need only pay 6%. 
    If yearly net profit is greater than 700k RMB, profit tax is 19% and the local government returns 4%, so companies need only pay 15%.

  • Foreign-owned companies can apply for government grants. These vary depending on the industry, but typically companies in the focus areas above will be able to apply for financial grants in order to incentivise them to move to Hainan.

  • The incentive policy for key industry projects can be negotiated specifically.
    The local government is open to negotiation. If you have a good project you could request free land, tax benefits, or anything else that you require in order to start up in Hainan.


Attractive benefits for foreign workers

  • Hainan is 'visa free' for citizens of 59 countries, meaning that it is easy to access.
  • Foreign workers can apply for a 2 year work permit, or 5 years if they hold a Master's degree.

  • Foreigners can also apply for a China green card (permanent residency) within a year. The applicant must work for a Hainan-based local company with a minimum salary of not less than 30K RMB per month, and a labor contract for more than 5 years.

  • Highly qualified foreign workers (Bachelor's degree level upwards) working for a Hainan-based local company can apply for a housing allowance of 2-5k RMB per month from the local government.
