How to Search China Company’s Name in Chinese?
If you know a China company’s legal name in Chinese, you can initiate an action before a court or file a complaint against it. If not, you cannot do anything.
All Chinese individuals and enterprises have their legal names in Chinese, and they have no legal or standard names in foreign languages.
In other words, their English names or names in other languages are named by themselves randomly. Usually, it’s hard to back-translate their weird foreign names to their legal Chinese names.
If you don’t know their legal names in Chinese, then you won’t be able to tell the Chinese court whom you are suing. You also cannot tell the Chinese law enforcement agency whom you want to complain of.
Consequently, Chinese courts or government agencies will very likely not accept your case.
So, how could you obtain a China company’s legal name in Chinese?
1. You can ask a China company to provide its business license.
There are a legal name in Chinese and a unified credit code in its business license.
2. You can ask a Chinese company to seal the contract with you.
To make a contract valid in China, Chinese companies must seal it. The official seal contains a legal name in Chinese and a unified credit code of the company.
You can check whether your company’s legal name in Chinese on the business license is consistent with that on the official seal. Because a scammer may get a scanned version of the business license of another company, although it is difficult for him to get another company’s seal.
