8 september 2022 | Workshop (in English): How to close down your China legal entity

About the workshop

Foreign invested enterprises in China have been facing unprecedented challenges in the past years, especially during the pandemic period in years 2020 and 2021. When the rest of the world is slowly recovering from the economic damages caused by covid in year 2022, China strengthened its covid control measures, which make operations of foreign invested enterprises in China even more difficult.

Reluctantly, certain investors have come into the conclusion to shut down their China operations completely by closing down their Chinese entities. In this legal workshop, we will discuss about the reasons, the considerations, the procedures and timing when closing down a foreign company’s entity in China, we will also give practical advice on how to handle the closing down.

We will cover the following subjects:

  • Reasons of foreign companies closing down entities in China;
  • Considerations when closing down a Chinese entity;
  • Procedures and timing of closing down a Chinese entity;
  • Simplified de-registration procedure.


The workshop will take place on Thursday, September 8 at 16:00 and will last for a total of 1 hour, with the opportunity to network afterwards. We will hold the workshop at our office in the Willemswerf in Rotterdam and it will be presented in English.
