Using a Hong Kong Company for Your Chinese Factory

This article is originally found here: https://www.globalfromasia.com/hkcompanyforchina/

Tired of sourcing from factories and want to setup your own manufacturing operation? Searching for the best corporate structure for a new Chinese factory?

Look no further, today we will dig into Hong Kong being a great place to open your factory under.

How To Open A Factory?

I remember when I first visited a factory in China. I became shocked to think it isn’t as complicated as I had thought. There are three main factors:

  •  Big Open Space

    Need a big building with lots of open space to set up the operations.

  •  Machines

    You’ll need the equipment to prepare the materials. This can be all sorts of machines but let’s stick to the most common: plastic injection machine. These are the most common in a Chinese factory. They will take the manufacturing mould, and then inject the plastic inside and pop out a bunch of the plastic parts. Significant size and definitely a big upfront investment.

  •  Labor

    You’ll need people to put together the plastic parts once they came out of the machines. Debur, check for any defects, assemble. Check the quality. Package. You get the idea.

Of course there is a lot more skill and magic to the process, but these are the main pieces of the puzzle you’ll be dealing with.

Is Hong Kong A Good Place For Your Factory Business?

A lot of people ask me when they’re searching on Alibaba should they pick companies that are in Mainland China or Hong Kong. Yet I don’t know any factories still located in Hong Kong – they are all in China. What is in Hong Kong is the sales office, or even just a virtual office for the parent company.

That’s not to say having your factory established in Hong Kong as a business entity isn’t viable. It is something common. It can be with anyone, Americans, Europeans, Local Hong Kong people, or Mainland Chinese who open the HK limited company. It will not be too easy for the general public to know the nationality of the owners (though there are ways to do company research in Hong Kong). Once you’re a Hong Kong company, you can then open a Mainland Chinese WFOE (Wholly Foreign Owned Entity) that will be where the factory operates from.

You can have a local Chinese partner in the factory with you, and you can both own the shares in Hong Kong. Once that is setup, you will then be “foreign” to the Chinese government even if half the company is Mainland Chinese owned. So you’ll open a Chinese subsidiary that is the fully owned by Hong Kong company. Have the IP owned by the HK parent company, and now you have the benefits of HK’s English legal system while able to operate inside China.

While any company could be the foreign owner of a WFOE in China, Hong Kong is a good choice as it is so close and so common. Hong Kong banks, and other banks and legal entities will be familiar with how to file the documentation. Thus the WFOE won’t have as much of a headache as having it owned by a company elsewhere.

Make sense?

What Things You’ll Need For a Hong Kong Parent of a Chinese Factory

So what are you going to need for this Chinese factory owned by an HK limited company?

It depends, will you have a physical office in Hong Kong? To do sales, meeting clients, trade shows, etc? Or will you work close with a serviced office in HK that will help with the mail from the governments and banks.

I’m going to assume you’ll be living and working in the Chinese factory, and that will be your base. You won’t need the overhead of a Hong Kong office and will instead invest in Mainland China operations.

Thus, you won’t need many things in the Hong Kong company, most operations will happen in Mainland China.

But you’ll definitely need:

  • Hong Kong Bank – Goes without saying. Any company operating needs to have a bank account. You’ll use this to receive money from customers, and send in money to Mainland China for the production and the rent and staff costs.
  • Hong Kong Credit Card – To keep your life a bit more simple, you’ll need a credit card to put the expenses on. You’ll be traveling to trade shows, clients, and having certain online software packages.
  • Paypal. If you’re selling B2B (manufacturing orders) then I don’t recommend having clients paying you by Paypal. But you may like to have this to buy things online and for small sales. This could also come in handy buying things online if you don’t get a credit card.
  • RMB (Chinese Yuan) Currency Option – Make sure you tell the bank you’ll need a RMB currency account. This will come in handy for managing the risk in currency fluctuations. Plus you can save time at the Chinese bank when you send over Chinese Yuan instead of USD or other foreign currency. It’s much easier to convert to RMB in Hong Kong than it is in Mainland Chinese banks. You can test for yourself, and you can thank me later 🙂

So Here’s How Operations Will Go

So now you did it, you setup a Hong Kong company and then a Chinese WFOE subsidiary. Good job! That took at least 4 months, but more likely 6 months. You may have done some operations already, but now you’re fully legal to do it.

You’ll rent a big space in the outskirts of Shenzhen or in Dongguan. You have your sales team there – and the internet speeds are reasonable for dealing with foreign clients. You have orders coming in. Once the money is in Hong Kong, you can either wire the money on demand to China. A lot of companies work out a monthly invoice for costs of operations and production.

Once you send the money to your Chinese bank from your Hong Kong bank, you order the raw materials and get the factory workers trained up to handle the production. You may need to hire more staff or scale down when production is low. I hope you have a core manufacturing team in place with good experienced factory management.

You process the order. You finish mass production and then send remaining funds to your Hong Kong parent company’s bank from the client. You need to get more cash over to China to finish the deal and get it to the port, FOB Shenzhen.

You will keep some money in China, but you hold your money and IP in the parent company in Hong Kong.

This is the basic idea. Sure the factory can be over in Shanghai, or deeper into Mainland China as well. Where you choose the factory location should base on the type of product and industry you’re in. There are cities who specialize in certain areas.

So What Do You Think? Hong Kong Perfect For Your Factory?

Hope this guide was helpful for you! Where are you opening up your own factory. Often the order of events is a USA import and export company grows bigger and bigger. Getting more clients and specializing more, they want to go even more direct. Since they know their product so well and their customers too, they can invest in a factory themselves.

Sure, this will have more fixed costs and more risky, but you’ll have full control. The trickiest part is to managing the staff and the quality control. All that complaining you did to those factories you bought from before will now be your headache! Its not always the factory owner who does the bad quality on purpose. It takes good management skills to keep things in order and deliver top quality.

So I’d love to hear your experiences and tips about Chinese factories from a Hong Kong company. Please leave comments and questions below!

Ascension Into The Future Of Cross Border Business: Recap of Third Cross Border Summit

Saturday , April 21, 2018: Shenzhen, China

For 2 days, from Friday April 20 to Saturday April 21, Over 200 e-commerce business owners from both inside and outside of China assembled to take part in the third annual Cross Border Summit. Hosted by the organizations, Global From Asia, it was a conference to bring together top e-commerce business owners from all corners of the globe.

With over 40 top experts in the industry sharing strategies for optimizing your Amazon FBA listing to building an international brand and internet marketing (SEO) — the audience was filled with information and advice on how to take their e-commerce businesses to the next level.

Many international speakers had their first experience in China and Shenzhen. Brian Johnson , CEO and founder of PPC Scope , an American Amazon PPC expert had arrived to Shenzhen, China for the first time to speak at this conference. He was pleasantly surprised by the modern style of the city and the very positive minded sellers in the audience. Will Tjerlund, a top Amazon seller from Minneapolis, Minnesota also returned to share his story on scaling his business to over 2600 products in under six months . He enjoyed sharing his knowledge and the data he has gathered from his years on e-commerce and working with multi-million dollar brands in his consulting firm Goal Consulting.

The summit held a panel where we brought top international sellers such as Danny McMillan, host of Seller Sessions, Anthony Lee COO of Six Leafs, and Meir Simhi from Brand Masters to share the perspectives of the Western side of the sellers mind. Multiple sessions were quite amazing where we took top sellers and experts from both China and overseas and learned their tactics and strategies in a “head-to-head” format.

Michael Michelini, founder and host of the Global From Asia podcast said “We are so happy to bring together top leaders from around the world in the cross-border business industry. This is not your normal corporate gathering, we are here to make business deals, share actionable knowledge, and build long term relations with leaders around the world. We are growing to a new level as the industry matures and governments adopt new and more strict policies.”

“I skipped the after party in the first night to implement what I learned. Very valuable and actionable advice is what I would say this conference is all about.” Said Rolands, a Latvian B2B distributor based in Taiwan who is venturing into B2C e-commerce.

Chinese attendees also enjoyed their time at the third summit: My company is a cross border ecommerce business in China. It is my first time in Cross border Summit. First of all it is a great chance to know the different people from different countries. A good chance to know what foreign people think of China.” said Vicky from YKS Group.

More big sellers from Singapore were present “I definitely recommend coming to the summit to learn, enjoy the food, and build great relationships” said Daniel, an Amazon seller who had his first Cross Border Summit experience.

A highlight of this year’s summit was the announcement of the summit’s expansion into Latin America, with a major trade show planned for Q3 2019. On top of that, a new virtual reality China tour experience was debuted — so people from around the world can enter a Chinese factory, check it out at https://www.globalfromasia.com/vr/ and get in on the ground floor for a brand new way to find and verify Chinese factories.

Shen Wai International School Hosts IB Regional Workshop

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Asia Pacific Regional Workshop was held in Shen Wai International School (SWIS) from the 20th to the 22nd of April. This is the first time the IB chose Shenzhen as a host city.

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) offers a continuum of international education from Primary Years Programme (PYP) to the Diploma Programme (DP). The programmes encourage both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and in their personal development. The IB offers an education for students from the ages of 3 to 19, comprising of four programmes that focus on teaching students to think critically and independently, and how to inquire with care and logic. The IB prepares students to succeed in a world where facts and fiction merge in the news, and where asking the right questions is a crucial skill that will allow them to flourish long after they’ve left our programmes. There are around 5,000 schools in over 150 countries around the world that implement the IB programme(s). The IB DP is widely recognized by most universities around the world.

These 3-day interactive workshops include Introduction to the IB Programme Standards, PYP and MYP Curriculum Model, the role of the coordinator and librarian, concept-based Learning; living and learning globally, and investigating inquiry. IB teachers from Asia Pacific regions including Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong and Taiwan attended the workshops with great enthusiasm. They live and breathe the IB’s philosophy of being lifelong learners.

As a host school, SWIS treated such an event with great priority. More than one month prior to the event, a committee which included School Director, Ally Wu and Deputy School Director, Mingshan Li, formed to prepare for the event. They looked into the venues for the workshops, equipment required, lunch and snack menus, which included special dietary requests for some of the attendees, bus pickups and drop-offs, and on spot troubleshooting.  From the IB organization meetings to the end of the workshop, all the committee members had been on standby and responded promptly to all requests. Their work was highly commended by the IB officials.

The fact that the IB chose Shenzhen, as a host city, is evidence of the high standards upheld in International education here in Shenzhen. Moving forward, SWIS would like to see more and more international education conferences, forums and workshops taking place in Shenzhen, so the world can know more about Shenzhen as a reputable city in regards to education and continue its journey towards the international arena.

Rugby vs American Football

They’re both called ‘olive ball’ here in China. But what are the differences between rugby and American football? 

在中国它们通通被称为『橄榄球』,但是究竟英式橄榄球RUGBY和美式橄榄球(又称为美式足球)究竟有什么区别呢?

Most people will point out that American football players are covered in armor whereas rugby players simply wear a mouthpiece. Both are full contact sports which require intense ball carrying and tackling but there are many differences that make each sport quite unique. 

人们通常都会指出,美式橄榄球运动员通常全副武装,而英式橄榄球运动员仅仅一个牙套就够了。实际上这两项运动都是完全的接触性运动,需要有密集的传球和铲球。但二者又大径不同使得这两项运动都独一无二。

First off, rugby is older and American football evolved from rugby’s core. So basics like tackling and scoring are similar. American football terms such as touchdown and field goal came directly from rugby in the 19th Century.

首先,英式橄榄球历史更源远一些,美式橄榄球后根据英式橄榄球的核心发展而来,所以他们的基本规则和得分是十分相似的。例如美式橄榄球中的触地得分和射门得分则早在十九世纪由英式橄榄球规则当中直接演变而来。

Here are the key differences:

Rugby is played by 15 per side. That’s 30 players on the pitch with only one referee. Players stay on the pitch the entire match playing offense and defense until they are taken out of the game. Once a player is substituted he cannot rejoin the match.

以下是英式和美式之间的关键不同之处:

英式橄榄球每队由15名球员组成,场上一共只有三十名球员和一名裁判。在比赛结束之前,所有的球员都在场上进行防守和进攻,一旦球员被替换下场,他将不能重新参加该场比赛。

Football is 11 per side. Players are specialized and play only certain plays, can come in and out every play. 

美式橄榄球每队由11人组成,除了特定的比赛需要,场上可以随时替换或全部的球员。

Rugby players run forward and pass backwards to advance the ball. No blocking or running out of bounds is allowed.

Football players can run forward or pass over the defense to advance the ball. Blocking assists the runner and running out of bounds allows the offense to retain possession of the ball.

英式橄榄球球员通常是向前跑和向身位靠后的球员传球来推进战线,进攻方的其他球员不可以超过持球球员,也不可以冲撞和阻挡不持球的球员或者持球出界。

美式橄榄球的球员则可以向前跑或者通过穿越防守方传球来推进防线,进攻方球员可以帮助持球者冲撞防守方球员为其打开进攻空间,即便持球者跑出界,仍旧保持球权。

Rugby players can kick as an attack and retain possession.

Football players usually kick to surrender possession.

Rugby is nonstop with quick restarts.

Football is full of stoppages, timeouts, and long breaks for quarters and injuries.

英式橄榄球球员可以进攻踢球并保持球权。

而美式通常踢球后需交出球权。

英式橄榄球通常开赛后赛程紧凑,没有计时暂停,而美式则有很多暂停, 超时,或者四分之一赛时后和有受伤时都将暂停比赛计时。

Scoring by touching the ball down in the end zone in rugby is 5 points followed by a 2 point kick.

Scoring by crossing the goal line of the end zone in football is 6 points followed by a 1 point kick.

英式橄榄球的在对方得分区持球触地(达阵)得分5分,达阵后还可以踢射门一次,射中2分。

美式橄榄球可直接带球穿越得分线达阵,达阵得分6分,完成达阵得分后可踢射门得分1分。

A rugby penalty kick is 3 points and a drop goal taken during the play is also 3 points. Any player can kick.

An American football field goal is 3 points and is taken by the kicking specialist who usually does nothing else but this.

英式橄榄球罚踢得3分,或在比赛过程中直接射门同样得3分。场上任何球员都可踢射。但在美式中射门得分同样3分,但不同的说通常都会有特定的踢射球员,而这个人除了射门也只有射门而已。

Rugby tackles turn into rucks and play continues.

Football tackles end the play and everyone has a chance to reset before the next play.

英式橄榄球在比赛过程当中,如果持球者被扑搂(Tackle)摔倒,双方球员上来抢夺地上的球时形成RUCK,比赛继续。而在美式中,持球者被扑搂摔倒后,比赛暂停,而所有人都有机会在比赛继续时重新调整战略甚至是球员。

Rugby offers the defense many chances to win back the ball. After every tackle a ruck is formed where both teams try to force each other backwards to win the ball. Scrums and lineouts restart the match when the a foul has been committed or the ball has gone out of bounds. These both also allow the defense a chance to win the ball back. 

英式为防守方提供了很多赢回球权的机会。每次铲球后,两队都试图互相迫使对方后退以赢得球权。当出现犯规或者出界时,Scrum(俗称斗牛)和Lineout(列队争球)是最常见的两种重新回复比赛的形式。这两种方式都让防守方有机会赢回球权。

Play is restarted in American football by snapping the ball to the quarterback. Referees reset the ball after each play.

在美式当中,任何开球都必须首先传给四分卫。每次恢复比赛后由裁判重新设置开球。

Rugby players run around for 80 mins, tackle, kick, pass, and run. This means all sorts of body types are needed- tall skinny players, short round players, light quick players, etc. There is a position for everyone.

Football positions are specialized. A player who catches almost never will be asked to tackle. A passer will never have to kick, etc. There are positions that rarely have to run and most defenders never have to run with the ball, pass, catch, or kick.

在英式橄榄球80分钟左右的比赛中,所有球员都有可能需要完成扑搂,传球,射门,带球等动作,这就意味着无论你的体格如何,高矮胖瘦,英式橄榄球总有一个属于你的位置。

而美式就稍稍有些不同了,基本上来说每个人都有自己特定的位置和任务。例如接球者不会安排扑搂的动作,带球者可能永远不用踢射等等,例如这些特定的位置很少需要奔跑,并且大多数的防守者都不需要有带球跑,传球,接球或者踢射这些动作。

Rugby games are 80 mins long with a short halftime and a running clock.

Football games are 60 mins long with breaks for each quarter. The clock stops for numerous reasons and each team can call time outs.

英式橄榄球大约时长80分钟左右,中场休息非常短暂,而比赛开场后计时不会停止。

美式橄榄球赛时实际只有60分钟,比赛分四个赛节,每四分之一(15分钟)比赛休息一次。但总有诸多原因会暂停比赛计时,因此看球赛的人永远不知道这场比赛会进行多久。

Overall, rugby is for all-around athletes where teamwork and on-field decision making win or lose games.

Football is more of a chess match between two coaches who call plays executed by specialized players good at their positions.

总体来说,英式橄榄球是一个全能运动员的运动项目,团队合作和赛场决策都有可能赢得或输掉比赛。

美式橄榄球相对于来说更像两队教练之间的抉择,他们的球员则像是这场体能国际象棋赛中的棋子,球员的安排甚至决定了比赛的结果。

They filmed the lands , homeland of this incredible and unique white wine, famous  all over the World, and consequently,  also sadly  the most copied Italian wine by scammers.

 The hillsides of Marche hold many secrets, among them the complexity and ageability of well-made Verdicchio. That’s why I feel intrigued years ago as I explored the region, says Caroline Sophie Douce, owner of Stesoph.

The Verdicchio grape, grown in the hillsides of north-central and western Marche, is used to produce a variety of wines, from “metodo classic” to “passito” and, in between, some of the longest-lived dry whites found in Italy and not only.

Decanter Italy expert Ian D’Agata, in his book Native Wine Grapes of Italy, asserts that ‘Verdicchio is arguably  Italy’s  greatest  native  white  grape  variety.’  In  its  2015  Italian  wine  guide,  Gambero  Rosso awarded its highest rating of tre bicchieri to 11 examples of Verdicchio – more than any other white in the country. So why is it that you would be hard pressed to find more than one example on wine lists outside of Italy?

Maybe simply because it is difficult to appreciate something that most people in China didn’t know before Stesoph intuition and perseverance through its Italian platform located in Shenzhen. They introduce into China market several top quality original white wine that became in a few years very appreciated and a “must have” mainly by the new generation and high society Chinese women with a sales grow over 10% every year.

This success was possible because of the excellent selections in terms of quality by Stesoph’s partners specialized in production of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi special for a series of factors including soil, climate and elevation. The Castelli di Jesi zone is located in north central Marche closer to the sea side, while Verdicchio  di Matelica is in the western centre of the region, close to the Apennine Mountains where the wineyards grow up to 800m above sea level.
