How to Check Chinese Company’s Registration Information?-CTD 101 Series

You can find a Chinese company’s registration information on China’s national enterprise credit information publicity system via the link below.

This post was first published in CJO GLOBAL, which is committed to providing consulting services in China-related cross-border trade risk management and debt collection.

This is a website of the State Administration for Market Regulation of China, available at: http://www.gsxt.gov.cn/index.html

The Administration for Market Regulation is the registration authority for Chinese enterprises. Therefore, this system is the most authoritative platform to verify the legal status of Chinese enterprises.

The website is available in the Chinese language and you can visit it outside China.

You need to paste the legal Chinese name of the Chinese company in the search box, and then click ‘Search’. See the picture below:

If you can’t find the company here, either the company doesn’t exist, or its current legal name is not what you type in. In short, this means that the company in this name doesn’t exist.

If you can find the company, you can know its status, such as existence, revocation, or deregistration. See the picture below:

Chinese company registration status is divided into the following types: existence, revocation, deregistration, moving in, moving out, suspension, and liquidation. Terms for company registration status vary slightly from place to place, but they are generally the same.

Except for existence, all others are abnormal operating statuses.

To learn more about the different statuses of a Chinese company, please read an earlier post ‘How Do I Know if a Chinese Company Is Legitimate and Verify It?. We can provide you with a FREE service to check the operating status of a Chinese company.
