It depends on your business purpose and function. If you want to develop the domestic market in mainland China in near future. I just recommend you to set up a WOFE and if you want to purchase products from the suppliers and export to overseas, you could consider the Representative Office. however, in recent years due to the loss of the tax holiday regarding the RO, more and more foreign investors choose to build a WOFE rather than a RO. if you have more questions, you could visit my blog on Http://victorotocpa.blog.com.  Thanks.  Victor C.P.A.

Shanghai WFOE Setup is not a simple thing, but since we have our law changed in 2014, now there is no paidup needs to inject right away.

You can check the link as below: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g187497-d5293399-r211443692-Bar_Shanghai-Barcelona_Catalonia.html 


And WFOE now takes around 1.5-2 month to complete all the registration procedures.
