Notes on the 2013 Amendments to China’s Company Law

Although we now normally refer to China’s national corporations law as the 2005 (or 2006 by the year of effectiveness) Company Law, it is actually the 2013 version since a range of significant amendments were made by the NPC, China’s national lawmaking body, to the Company Law. These amendments reduced the minimum registered capital to zero, and greatly simplified the incorporation process. Below are a few pratice notes by law firms on these amendments.
