Navigate the Chinese employee share plan market with confidence
Establishing an employee share plan in mainland China can be challenging, with many legal, regulatory, and compliance requirements that are complex and difficult to navigate.
The State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) registration in PRC requires that all local and global organisations listed outside of mainland China with China-based participants must complete the SAFE registration in the Chinese language. Being non-compliant could lead to fines, penalties and potential reputational damage to your company.
Whether your company is based in China or another country, our dedicated Computershare team in China has extensive knowledge of the local and jurisdictional PRC regulations to ensure your employee share plan is, and remains, PRC compliant.
Over 10 years of experience since Circular 7 was released in 2012.
More than 100 client applications successfully registered and compliant.
Approval from 16 different SAFE authorities.
