A. We process China Company Verification report in 1 working day, China time (CST). In general you will receive your report within 24 hours, excluding weekends. Note that our reports are manually researched and verified using live information sources, and are not automatically generated.


Q. What does China Company Verification cover?
A. This report covers a Mainland China company. This refers to any company in mainland China (excluding Taiwan and Hong Kong).


Q. Where does the information come from?
A. We identify and verify companies using information from a range of official government sources and third party databases. Business registration data is provided by the Administration for Industry and Commerce of each province.


Q. How long is the verification valid for?
A. As a company’s registration details could change at any time, strictly speaking our verification is confirmed only at the time of research.


Q. What information do I need to provide in order to buy a company verification report?
A. In order to verify a Chinese company, we require a) the company name (in English or Chinese) & b) additional identifying information on this Chinese company.


Q. What do you mean by "identifying information"?
A. This information can be, for example, their company website, Alibaba profile, address, phone number, a scan/image of business card, invoice, contract, banking information, etc.


Q. I don't have much "identifying information" - can you still do the verification?
A. If the information you submit is insufficient for us to perform the verification, we will email you to ask for more details. Providing more detailed information helps us to ensure the accuracy of our verification and provide you with your report quicker.


Q. Can I upgrade to "China Certified Verification" after ordering China Company Verification?
A. Yes. We can produce a China Company Verification report in the usual turnaround time. If you then decide you'd like to upgrade to China Certified Verification, we can arrange payment of the difference and prepare an updated report.


Q. What happens if the company isn't registered?
A. If we cannot identify registration in Mainland China you will receive a red (negative) report. In cases where we determine that the company is registered in Hong Kong, but not in Mainland China, we will provide details of the company's Hong Kong registration details equivalent to our HK Company Verification report.
