I'm not an expert but I'm sure others on here would need more information from you. Like: Are you a Chinese citizen, or a foreigner? How have you been teaching the last 7 years? Is the a demand in your area? Would it be more profitable for you to just freelance instead of opening up a location? Etc.

It's true for any small business
  * No matter where you live, I'm pretty sure there are work & business regulation. Find them and read them Smile Thins about how accounting should be done, where/how to declare your company (even if it's a one person operation). For China, sorry, do not know the details.
  * Be sure there are customers willing to pay for your services. Ideally, you already have students, and even people willing to work with you.
  * Find a place for your company. Should be easy to reach for your customers ie. not a 2 hours ride bus to nowhere, to arrive in a shitty place, in a dirty building.
  * Identify the people that would be working with you.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
