Business Development

We understand that when looking at new markets or exploring an idea, you would like to have a conversation without feeling as though you are committing to a contractual relationship. The China Investors Club is happy to schedule a free 30 minute call to listen to your ideas and provide honest feedback. We have included below some of the topics raised by those that call in however, we are able to cover a wide range of subject – why not try us?

  • How easy is it to export my product to China
  • Do I need a licence to sell in China
  • Which area of China should I start working in
  • I want to find a reliable manufacturer in China
  • My previous Chinese partner has not worked out – can you suggest other routes
  • How easy is it to get my money out of China 


If you wish to continue the discussion and explore further options, we charge £100+VAT per hour for on-line consultations and face to face meetings in Central London. 

Once you decide you wish to enter the Chinese market we offer Market Entry support packages. These range from consultations to market reports and direct supplier and/or client contracts. Our network of legal advisors cover topics such as company formation, shareholder agreements, licence applications and IP enforcement. Meanwhile our specialist accountants can help with your operational activities including HR & Payroll, taxation and regulatory reporting. Looking for extra staff? We can introduce you to head-hunters and if finding a building to work from is challenging then we can help as well. Each of our chosen partners is familiar with both Chinese and UK practices and can help you build confidence when entering this exciting market

Business development for China

China Investors Club provides the bridge between Chinese and UK business to help smooth the business development process. This is possible partly because we have worked with China since 1997 which has provided us a deep and rich understanding of Chinese business culture. The investment we have made in developing an extensive network of Chinese contacts both in China and the UK means that you can accelerate your China entry strategy much faster and with less risk that would otherwise be the case. We can help you avoid the pitfalls and identify the opportunities in a way that leaves you fully in control.

Each year we undertake at least 5 trips to China to support our existing network and develop new connections. Focused initially in and around Beijing and the surrounding provinces of Tianjin, Hebei, Liaoning and Heilongjiang, our China based networks have expanded. As such we now cover the East Coast down from Shanghai through to Fuzhou, Shenzhen and Guangzhou as well as inland to Wuhan, Chongqing and Chengdu.

We recognise that business opportunities exist outside of China’s Tier 1 cities. This means that we actively support business development in Second and Third Tier cities. These areas offer surprising levels of growth potential with swift access to resources and political support. While not suitable for every UK firm, understanding that there is more to China than Beijing and Shanghai adds depth to our business development advice and services.
