Transition From Local Chinese Entity to PEO

We help your business to switch from a local Chinese entity to a PEO solution in a smooth and cost-effective way.

Transition from a WFOE or Representative Office to a PEO

Setting up a local entity in China might be the solution that was on your mind when you decided to enter the Chinese market. The problem is that actually, this solution is not always the best in terms of costs and risks. 

As part of your expansion in China, there are different reasons why you can choose to set up a local entity, including having a recognizable brand in the country, ease of employment, simplifying your tax position, but also because you probably don’t know exactly what are the available options.

For many of the reasons, a local PEO is a more cost-effective solution. With a local PEO, you still have the guarantee that your employees are hired in compliance with the law, but saving more costs. Besides this, a PEO can help to run and manage the payroll for them, so that your business can have fewer risks.
