The Foreign Investment Law means new challenges for your FIEs. One of the first challenges is FIE Conversion.

Under China's Foreign Investment Law, which became effective in January 2020, all 500,000+ foreign-invested enterprises (FIEs) in China - including both Sino-foreign joint venture enterprises and wholly foreign-owned enterprises - will need to convert their corporate documents to comply with the corporate governance requirements of the Company Law before the end of December 2024. We call this conversion FIE Conversion.

If you fail to complete the conversion work in a timely and accurate manner, your FIE will face the risks of non-compliance. Since FIE conversion involves more than a simple filing, whether you have just one or many FIEs, we strongly recommend that you act as soon as possible and begin to formulate a strategic plan for the conversion work for your FIE(s).

Are you running into problems in your FIE conversion projects?

  • Don't know where to start

    Have you decided to begin the process, but aren't sure where you should start?

  • Corporate documents among FIEs are not uniform and cumbersome to modify

    Do you manage many FIEs that were established at different times or in different locations, or that used different templates for the Articles of Association?

  • Company group-specific terms

    Does the foreign parent company require that the corporate governance regulations in your FIE's corporate documents comply with group-specific standards?

  • Traditional outsourcing is not cost-effective

    Have you considered outsourcing this work to law firms, but are worried about high lawyer fees or the quality of the results?
