one cannot work in China as a "freelancer". Your working visa to work he legally will be tied to your employer who gets you the visa.

First step to successful freelancing: Don't substitute numbers for words. From the "Freelancing in China Handbook by B.S. Atcha (2007, Larper/Jollins, Chapter 3, pg 7):"

 

"Remember, Chinese culture is 5,000 years old, and hence, adheres greatly to established rules of grammar and sentence structure, frowning on the abbreviation or "textualization" of the written language. In order to show respect for established etiquette, all freelancers in China should become familiar with normative word spellings and traditional phraseology."

You can't even if you register yourself as a legal business entity. That is because to renew your work permit, you will need to employ a Chinese person and have at least two months worth of workers insurance receipts. So technically, unless you work illegally on the wrong type of visa, you can't do it.

A: You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yours
A:You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yourself. The same conditions for all foreigners apply. You have a job and the company can legally employ foreigners. Work permit is tied to that company and location that you are actually working and the position matches. You can't just work in China if you hold a dependence visa or residence permit.  -- jmintzis
