If the employee number with social insurance is zero, it might be because the company has no employees or it conducts business without complying with the law requirements.
If the company chooses to keep its employee number private, i.e., not disclose such information in the annual reports submitted to the SAMR, you may not be able to obtain such information from our Instant Company Search.
A judgment debtor means one who is obligated to pay a debt or damages in accordance with a judgment entered by a court. In Chinese laws, it stnads for a party who fails to perform the court judgment or arbitral award and enters the enforcement procedure after the statutory appeal period expires or after the final judgment is made.
A dishonest judgment debtor refers to a person who has not fulfilled the obligations determined in the effective legal document and has the statutory circumstances of "not performing but having the ability to perform" or "resisting enforcement", and is thus included in the list of dishonest persons subject to enforcement by the People's Court according to law.
Restricting high-amount consumption means restricting people's consumption beyond their normal consumption and consumption close to high-end consumption through laws or relevant regulations. The order's purpose is to push the judgment debtor to fulfill their legal obligations.
"Terminate the execution procedure" means the court will temporarily terminate the enforcement procedure and close the case for cases where no property is available for enforcement and will continue to resume enforcement after the property is found.
