I am currently in the process of setting up my own games company which will have joint development: The programming and design will be done in the US which I already started up an LLC in Delaware, but I want the art work and animation done here in Beijing in Wudaokou.
I do not exactly want to directly invest into China by setting up a China division but I also do not want to use an outsource studio. What my plan is to give my business partner the money to either start one of two options:
- She would start a company as an individual and take 100% liability: But my questions are what are exactly the Tax and liabilities entail?
- A Chinese LLC which would require me to make an investment of 100 thousand RMB to prove that there is enough money to found this corporation.
But essentially all I want is an office where I can have my friend manage the 2D/3D artists, UI artist, and special effects guy. Thats it, and I would have them send the art resources back to the US.
