Frequently Asked Questions
In many countries, PEO and EOR are the same thing and can be interchanged. However in countries such as China and the USA, PEO and EOR refer to different services:
With Employer of Record (EOR), the service provider takes on the responsibility & liability of the employer since the client does not have a legal entity in the country of interest.
With Professional Employment Organization (PEO), the service provider manages hiring, employment and payroll, but does not take on the responsibility or liability of the employer since the client has a legal entity in the country of interest.

Employees in China are entitled to annual leave days based on their work experience.
After working for their employer for 1 year. Employees who have worked less than 10 years are entitled to 5 days paid annual leave.
Employees who have between 10 and 20 years of experience are entitled to 10 days paid annual leave.
Employees with over 20 years of experience are entitled to 15 days of paid annal leave.
The 13th month bonus in China refers to a bonus equal to one month’s salary that is usually paid at the onset of Chinese New Year.
This 13th month bonus is not mandatory unless explicitly stated in the labor contract upon signing. A 13th month bonus depends on the company’s performance as well as the employee’s performance.
It is possible for employees to receive an even higher bonus (14th or even 15th month bonus) depending on these factors.
Payroll & mandatory benefits are included in our China Employer of Record and our PEO services.
As the legally responsible company for our EOR client’s employees in China, we need to cover notice periods & possible severance fees in the instance that a client defaults on a payment or simply disappears. This is a rare and unfortunate scenario, but this is how we avoid such a situation.
The deposit is returned after the client’s employee(s) is off-boarded and the certificate of termination is issued. This marks the end of the EOR service.
Using an Employer of Record/PEO service is often regarded as the modern approach to expanding into China. As long as you do not need to invoice in China, this is a perfect solution for foreign SMEs that want to start their business here. With an employer of record, you can legally hire and manager your team in China, avoiding the time and money required to set up a company.
HROne, the Employer of Record, is legally responsible for your staff during their term of employment in China.
You don’t! We manage the calculation, declaration, and submission of personnel income taxes to local government authorities on behalf of you and your staff.
Yes. Chinese labor laws require employers to issue a 30 day termination notice and pay a severance fee of 1 month’s salary per year the employee has worked at the company. If the employee has worked for more than 6 months, but less than a year then the employee should receive a fraction of a month salary proportional to his employment time as severance.
We can hire a local Chinese employee in as little as one day!
Your staff members can be employed and located anywhere in China. Their employment status will be recorded by the local bureau according to their location.
