In general, a PEO offers these kind of services:

  • HR administration
  • Payroll management
  • Benefits and tax administration
  • Visa processing
  • Recruitment

When a PEO in China is right for you

Companies handling ground operations

For companies that require to on-board local staff to handle ground operations (client meetings, sales support, supply management, etc) without setting up a Representative Office or a Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise (WFOE), a PEO solutions can save time and costs to start operating in the Chinese market

Companies testing the Chinese market

If you’re exploring how an expansion in China fits into your strategic plan but aren’t ready to take on the costs and risks of setting up an entity, we can help you “test the waters” in China. We can hire employees for you so you can evaluate the readiness of the Chinese market without making the investment needed to establish an entity.

Hire independent contractors

To hire an independent contractor in China, companies would need to set up a legal entity to be compliant and sign a labor contract with contractors. If companies do not consider these, the risks of being not compliant are very high. A PEO helps you to hire independent contractors without setting up a company in China and it takes care of all HR issues, including the labor contract.

Companies with a local entity

For companies that intend to register an entity in China but want to hire staff in the interim period before formal establishment, a PEO solution is perfect because you will not have to wait months before starting operating in China and you can actually start testing and conducting marketing and networking activities while you wait for the company to be established.
