The Foreign Invested Partnership Enterprise (FIPE) is a unlimited liability business entity without minimum requirements on registered capital. A partnership in the People's Republic of China is a business entity governed by the Partnership Enterprise Law passed by order of the President of the People's Republic of China to authorize and govern partnership enterprises. A partnership is a type of business entity in which partners share with each other the profits or losses of the business undertaking in which all have invested. It is quite different from Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise(WFOE) in the liabilities and formations. Shenzhen FIPE Registration is also called Shenzhen FIPE setup, Shenzhen FIPE formation, Shenzhen FIPE incorporation and Shenzhen FIPE establishment. 

 

Shenzhen FIPE Registration-Investors of Partnership Enterprise
The Minimum number of partners should be 2, there are no requirements on the nationality of a Partner, thus it can be all foreign investors to form a FIPE or Foreign and Chinese partners mixed FIPE. There is no much limitation for the nationality for the investors. 

Shenzhen FIPE Registration-Different types of FIPE in Shenzhen
1. General partnership Enterprise (GPE): A general partnership enterprise may be formed by general partners who bear unlimited joint and several liabilities for the debts of the partnership. The general partners share unlimited liabilities for the debt of the partnership.

2. Limited partnership enterprise (LPE): A limited partnership enterprise is formed by a combination of general partners and limited partners where the limited partners bear the liabilities for the partnership's debts to the extent of their capital contributions.

3. Special General Partnership enterprise (SGP): A special general partnership enterprise resembles a general partnership except that it must be a professional service institution offering services requiring professional knowledge and special skills. The structure shields co-partners from liabilities due to the willful misconduct or gross negligence of one partner or a group of partners. It is very similar to limited liability partnership in Europe and America.

 

Shenzhen FIPE Registration-Advantages of FIPE
