3.2 Procedures for Registration of Individually-Owned Businesses
Hong Kong permanent residents establishing individually-owned businesses on the mainland do not need to seek approval from the commerce department and can register with the industry and commerce administration bureau direct. In other words, the approval procedures required are the same as those for mainland residents. In Guangdong, the industry and commerce administration departments (sub-bureaus and county bureaus) throughout the province are responsible for processing applications for the establishment of individually-owned businesses. Business operators are required to submit applications to their local industry and commerce administration department only.
