WFOE stands for wholly foreign owned enterprise, which is a Limited liability company wholly owned by the foreign investor(s). WFOE means the foreign investors (including Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan) established the enterprise within Chinese territory, in accordance with 《PRC Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise Law》, with capital provided solely by the foreign investor. The foreign investors refer to the foreign enterprise, individual or partner. (Including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan).

In Shanghai, WFOE were originally conceived for encouraged manufacturing activities that were either export orientated or introduced advanced technology. However, with China’s entry into the WTO, these conditions were gradually abolished and the WFOE is increasingly being used for service providers such as a variety of consulting and management services, software development and trading as well.
