Your labour issues resolved – Employment | Immigration | Tax | Pension

Having become the world’s second largest economy in 2010, the People’s Republic of China (“PRC”) remains a key market that every multinational company targets for investment. Like many other countries in the world, its immigration policy strives to achieve the delicate balance of maintaining border sovereignty and an adequate employment rate for local residents, while at the same time facilitating trade and commerce. Tax, employment and pension/incentive issues also remain a minefield that companies need to navigate when sending high-level talent there.

We provide “one stop” comprehensive solutions to employers to account for any operational, business change and administrative issues that may arise in the dynamic global workplace.
