In this issue, we take a “back to basics” approach to China’s mandatory benefits. Where, exactly, is that extra 35-40 percent on top of an employee’s salary going? What are social insurance contribution rates, base amounts, and tax exemptions? How does all of this figure into the payroll process? We next look at mandatory benefits as a piece of the larger payroll puzzle, with highlights on two very China-specific pieces: FESCOs and hukou, China’s “domestic passport.”

Considerations such as whether the entity will conduct commercial activity, the extent of legal liability the parent company wishes to take on, establishing a tax presence, and the ability to apply for the simplified “Highly Qualified Specialist” work permit all come into play.
