Branch Office와 Subsidiary Company와 Representative Office의 차이

A key point to note is that a representative office is not allowed to engage in any business activity except market research and liaisoning activities.
 
Two ways in which a foreign company may conduct business are by registering a branch office or setting up a limited liability company (i.e. subsidiary company).
