3. Guidelines for obtaining interest subsidy

• The borrower pays full interest to the bank
• The People’s Bank of China Dongguan Branch evaluates the borrower’s qualification
• The Dongguan Financial Service Office and Dongguan Finance Bureau review the case and make final determination
• The municipal budget allocates an interest subsidy to the bank
• The bank returns subsidized interest to the borrower’s account

4. Guidelines for transformation of overseas-invested enterprises (TOIE) applying for FPSP assistance

A TOIE is an enterprise that was formerly a PTE. Regardless of the length of time since transformation, the TOIE is eligible to apply for FPSP assistance as long as it is deemed qualified as provided in the manual Divisions on the Highlighted Small and Medium Enterprises and Processing Trade Enterprises Funding Support Program

If the TOIE is newly transformed and has failed to provide an annual financial statement to the bank, it can ask its headquarters to provide a retrospective financial statement which reflects annual corporate operations. It can then be considered a favorable candidate of FPSP when the retrospective financial statement is endorsed by Chinese branches of foreign banks or overseas-owned services.

If the TOIE is newly transformed and has PP&E (property, plant & equipment) in Dongguan, the TOIE should submit:

• PP&E ownership certificates issued by the related township or village authority, if assets are possessed by TOIEs
• Specialized certificates requested in case of unclear PP&E ownership
• PP&E qualification documents issued by the township or village authority prior to PP&E being used as collateral

In the event of credit failure, town/subdistrict or village governments will assist the lenders in liquidating PP&E formerly owned by the TOIE, if the TOIE has outstanding loans from banks or guarantee credit institutions.
