I am planning to start the import of hardware items from China. I was wondering, what fraction of the total amount can be availed on credit if I do a regular business with them. Also, what is the time period for the credit?

Hello Anna! One way to do this is to use a trading company (broker) inside China that you run the business through, let the broker build the credit with the suppliers from within China. Focus on building your relationship with the broker as they may have to manage more than one supplier in your behalf. It is easier for suppliers to collect on an entity in China compared to collecting on from you (an overseas company. One other way is to set up a Hong Kong company and build credit from that company inside Hong Kong. Companies in China are more willing to offer credit terms to those inside China.
