Hebei province recently launched a trial policy to simply the procedures for registering a business for local residents, according to a press conference on business license applications held in Shijiazhuang on June 13.
Based on the new policy, businesses in Hebei will finish the whole business registration procedures online without having to go to a local administrative bureau for industry and commerce. Applicants just need to login to the National Enterprise Credit Information Publicity System (Hebei) or Hebei Province Market Entity Credit Information Publicity System to submit digital materials. The business license application result can be queried by using their application account. The two systems are in service round-the-clock, making them much more convenient than manned counter services.
When businesses pass the license check, they can choose to pick up both digital and paper licenses at a local administrative bureau by themselves or apply for express delivery.

The whole business registration procedure can be finished online, which not only shortens the registration time, but also saves money for businesses, according to the head of Hebei Provincial Administrative Bureau for Industry and Commerce.
Currently, the online business registration service is undergoing trial operations in Shijiazhuang, Baoding, Xingtai and Puning county. The trial service will expand to all business registration sites in Hebei province on Oct 1.
Although digital business registration has commenced operations in some cities and counties in Hebei, businesses can still apply for licenses at local service sites.
As for the trial operation of simplified business registration procedures, the Shijiazhuang-based Shengjie Culture Promotion Co became the first company to get a digital business license in Hebei province.
