Outsource your HR in China (HRO)

HR outsourcing, including payroll, recruitment, internal and external training, performance review, and employment relationship cases.

Full HR outsourcing in China

An HR department is a critical component of any business in China. For foreign companies, it becomes even more important because there are aspects like payroll, benefits, taxes, hiring, that are different in China compared to other countries.

Hiring internal staff to manage HR or buying HR software can become expensive, especially for SMEs entering China. To become compliant, a foreign company has to learn everything about employment laws, payroll, and taxes. 

Outsourcing HR becomes important to guarantee not only compliance with the Chinese law but also to save time and costs managing HR. With our HR solution, we will help you to coordinate different HR aspects, including internal and external training, performance review, communication with payroll and recruitment vendors, and employment relationship cases.

Frequently Asked Questions

Payroll & mandatory benefits are included in our China Employer of Record and our PEO services.

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.

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.

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.
