Dongguan Announces Arrangements for Shared Registered Office Facility
Multiple start-ups will now be able to share the same business address, in line with an announcement by Dongguan’s municipal authorities. The full implications of the decision were outlined in the recently-published Administrative Measures for the Registration of Enterprise Clusters, an official briefing document that specifies that several limited liability companies may share a registered office if the premises in question is officially designated as an “enterprise cluster” and the hosting company has secured prior approval for the provision of such a facility.
Any business that has a focus on nurturing start-ups will be entitled to provide a registered office service to third parties after securing official approval. Among the businesses deemed suitable to enter into such an arrangement are makerspaces, incubators, accelerators and Hong Kong-Macau-Taiwan joint demonstration bases. In all instances, all applicants must first demonstrate that they comply with the prevailing legal requirements.
The Measures came into effect on 24 October 2018 and will be valid until 23 October 2023.
