Opinions of Five Authorities, including State Administration for Market Regulation,
on Constantly Deepening the Reduction of the Length of Time Required to Start a Business
(Guo Shi Jian Zhu  No. 79)
Market regulatory authorities, development and reform authorities, public security authorities, human resources and social security authorities, and tax authorities of all provinces, autonomous regions, municipalities directly under the Central Government, cities under separate state planning and sub-provincial cities, and related authorities of Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps:
To profoundly put into practice the deployments of 2019 Government Work Report and the Opinions of General Office of the State Council on Further Reducing the Length of Time Required to Start a Business (Guo Ban Fa  No. 32, hereinafter referred to as “the Opinions”), strive to create a higher-quality business environment, and improve the real experience of companies and the people in the facilitation of starting a business, the State Administration for Market Regulation, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, and the State Administration of Taxation jointly proposed the following opinions on continuously deepening the work of reducing the length of time required to start a business:
I. Work Objectives
(I) General Requirements. We will strive to realize the goal of reducing the length of time required to start a business to within 5 working days before the year of 2019, thus completing the goal set by the current government in advance. For places with conditions permitted, we will encourage them to reduce the length of time required to start a business to within 3 working days under the premise of ensuring work quality.
(II) Specific Objectives. Competent local government departments shall clean up non-statutory matters, procedures and submission materials, related to business starting, in the system. They shall jointly shorten the 4 processes (business registration, seal engraving, invoice application and collection, and social security registration) provided in the Opinions to 3 processes, namely, business registration, seal engraving, and invoice application and collection. To put it another way, the application of social security registration shall be merged into the process of business registration. We need to take effective measures to control the processing time of each process separately as follows: Business registration shall be completed within 2 working days. Seal engraving within 1 working day. Invoice application and collection for the first time within 2 working days.
II. Main Measures
(I) Comprehensively promoting the online handling of starting a business in the entire course. 1. All localities need to open the platform of “handling all matters through one network” (or special service zone, etc.), integrate various business handling matters (including establishment and registration, seal engraving, invoice application and collection, and social security registration) and online service resources, strengthen information sharing, and effectively possess the ability to provide services for starting a business, featuring “logging in to a platform, filling in information one-off, circulating in real time at the back-end platform, and giving feedback information immediately”. Conditions permitted, localities need to vigorously promote services such as sending documents via express delivery, and self-printing of certificates and invoices, and gradually realize the remote handling (no need to handle face to face). 2. Relying on government service halls at various levels, etc., we shall establish special windows (or special zones) for starting a business, utilize the platform of “handling all matters through one network”, and make applicants able to submit and receive all documents in a window. 3. Electronic business licenses will be used as a legal and effective identity certificate and electronic signature means for companies to handle businesses (including business registration, seal making, social security registration) on the Internet, so as to promote companies to obtain and use electronic business licenses.
(II) Further optimizing business registration services. 1. We shall vigorously promote the whole-process electronic registration in a standardized, intelligent and automated manner, and establish and improve the “zero-meeting” business registration mechanism. 2. We shall cancel the pre-approval procedure for enterprise name selection, comprehensively promote the merged handling of autonomous application of enterprise name and establishment and registration, and further optimize handling processes. 3. All provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government) shall uniformly standardize samples providing reference for standard formats in terms of Articles of Association and resolutions of shareholders’ meetings, etc., within their respective jurisdictions, for applicants to choose independently and use free of charge. If establishment and registration of a limited liability company is handled on the Internet in the whole process and main members of a company pass the effective identity certificates and complete electronic signatures for submitted materials, applicants can select not to upload identity (subject qualification) documents any longer. 4. In light of local conditions, we will vigorously implement such facilitation measures as “city-wide general handling”, “registration application with banking outlets as agents”, etc.
(III) Further regulating seal engraving services. 1. For places where the seal industry information system has not been completed, we need to strengthen the implementation of responsibilities, complete the construction and application work as soon as possible, and provide financial support for system operation and maintenance, upgrade and transformation through the government’s purchase of services. We need to extend the system service function, realize the online handling of seal engraving business via WeChat applets, mobile APP, WeChat public account and other means, and ensure that companies using seals can select all seal engraving companies in local territories online and learn the prices for seal engraving, and Internet payment and other functions as well. 2. We shall strictly implement the policy stipulations of the State Council expressly ordering the cancellation of the examination and approval of the engraving of official seals. We shall not require companies using seals to handle the engraving and filing of official seals on their own in any form. Those who fail to implement properly and carry out examination and approval in a disguised form shall be seriously investigated and punished. 3. Public security departments of all localities shall scientifically plan the number of companies to engrave seals. They shall complete the rational layout to promote the benign competition and simultaneously prevent blind development, which may lead to vicious competition. We need to actively guide the price of seal engraving to be reasonable. It is strictly forbidden to appoint a seal engraving company to engrave seals, so as to avoid the formation of an invisible monopoly. 4. We shall actively promote the extensive application of electronic seals. Pilot tests will be carried out firstly in Beijing and Shanghai.
(IV) Further simplifying handling of tax affairs. 1. We shall strictly implement the Circular of State Administration of Taxation on Further Pushing Ahead with “Integrating Certificates Into One” Industry and Commerce Information Sharing Application Work (Shui Zong Han  No. 402), and strengthen the information sharing and application of business registration. 2. Vigorously implement electronic invoice application. The promotion efforts of electronic invoices shall be enhanced among key industries and taxpayers with usage demands. 3. We shall profoundly promote “package” services for new taxpayers, further streamline processes, shorten the length of time for approval, realize online application and online verification, and bring a case to be concluded one-off on the spot. For companies only applying for invoice application and collection for the first time, they do not need to provide bank account opening information.
(V) Further improving social security registration services. 1. We shall comprehensively promote the online handling of social security registration service, and simplify and integrate handling links and materials. 2. We shall contain social security registration service in the platform of “handling all matters through one network”. Companies, at the time of handling establishment and registration, can fill up insurance information at the company and individual levels simultaneously. They need not log in to other systems or platforms. 3. We shall improve data application and feedback mechanism and the utilization rate of shared information. After companies fill up and confirm insurance information at the company and individual levels, etc., we can handle enterprise social insurance registration through interdepartmental information sharing and internal data circulation in a synchronized manner, and timely send handling results to companies through the platform of “handling all matters through one network”.
III. Guarantee Measures
(I) Strengthening inter-departmental collaboration and coordination. Market regulatory departments of all localities must earnestly perform their leading responsibilities, and work with relevant departments to study and determine the specific timetable and roadmap for their respective regions in light of the above work objectives and measures. Development and reform, public security, human resources and social security and taxation authorities in all regions shall form coordination according to the division of labor and effectively implement their relevant tasks.
(II) Improving “Internet+” service capabilities. All localities need to continuously improve the ability of information sharing and application support and guarantee. Development and reform departments shall give strong support in the examination and approval of relevant information projects. It is necessary to strengthen on-site counseling and assistance, and guide applicants to conduct more business online. Business consultation and “one-off notification” shall be completed well. For the contents that do not meet the requirements of laws and regulations, we shall provide electronic or written notification forms.
(III) Paying attention to the actual effect of reform. We shall emphasis on understanding the actual feelings of companies and the people about reducing the length of time required to start a business, continuously strengthen policy interpretation and publicity and reporting, and enhance the awareness and participation of companies and the people for the reform. We shall implement the relevant requirements of the Opinions. We shall effectively complete the self-examination and self-evaluation work in accordance with the principles of international comparability, benchmarking the World Bank and Chinese characteristics. Drawing lessons from each other and competing in an orderly manner, we shall continue to deepen the work of reducing the length of time required to start a business.
(IV) Seriously implementing accountability mechanism. We need to take effective measures, to track and record the information about business handling processes, and to provide applicants with effective channels for convenient, dynamic inquiry of business handling information. We shall make full use of the “Integrating Certificates into One” data and information sharing. No units and staff members can set up other conditions and requirements for business starting. We shall pay much attention to the responsibilities of units and individuals that do not comply with the time limit and do not act according to the norms. If localities set up other conditions and requirements for business starting illegally and without authorization and once the situations are found, we shall report the situations to authorities level by level and have them resolutely rectified. Competent departments, including the State Administration for Market Regulation, will establish the accountability and notification mechanism. For those failing to implement the Opinions properly, they will be notified and treated on a case-by-case basis. For those causing serious adverse social impact, they will be seriously held accountable.
