Importance of WFOE Deregistration

Following the process for deregistration of a WFOE in China is very important. The Chinese government imposes severe punishments on the investors and stakeholders if the company is not de-registered based on the legal procedures.   If you fail to properly cancel your company in China, the names of the people involved will be placed on a blacklist. Being on the blacklist means that you are not allowed to carry out further business in China, or you may even not be able to enter – or leave – China.
