As an Employer of Record (EOR) in China, Sky Executive gives you a competitive advantage over other businesses in your industry by providing leading corporate and HR specialist services.

Benefits of Using a China PEO & EOR

There are several key benefits to using an employer of record like Sky Executive, including:

  • Affordability – By not having to establish a separate business entity, you can start your business in China for a fraction of the cost. 
  • Fast deployment – By using a China PEO, you can hire workers in days instead of weeks or months. This allows you to get local employees on the ground in China who can help you establish your business.
  • Flexibility – You can scale your business up or down with PEO services.
  • Compliance – Sky Executive can set up compliant employment and contracts that use best practices.
  • Risk management – As the China employer of record (EOR), Sky Executive assumes all the risk associated with employment so you can mitigate your own risk while expanding your business.

Full Business Support Service

Sky Executive handles all human resources, administrative and PEO responsibilities. This role allows us to simplify a company’s workforce management. We provide extensive services to our clients, including:

Tax Compliance

Individual Income Tax

China implemented a new individual income tax law that adjusted tax brackets and modified residency rules. This had the effect of reducing the tax burden on low income earners. It also provided additional deductions for residents.

The individual income tax in China is calculated on an annual basis. Sky Executive withholds tax in advance on a monthly basis.

Social Contributions

China requires companies to withhold social insurances’ contributions from their employees’ salaries. China has five different types of social insurances:

  • Pension
  • Work-related injury
  • Maternity
  • Medical insurance
  • Unemployment

These insurances are funded through contributions from employees and employers. The state also contributes to social insurances.

Housing Fund

The housing fund allows Chinese employees to save money toward the purchase of a home. Contributions are mandatory. The amount that is saved goes directly to the employee’s personal housing fund account, which is set up by the employer. The employer is responsible for making deductions from employee’s pay. When an employee joins or leaves a company, an account must be created, closed or transferred.

The rate of social insurances and housing fund contributions are subject to annual changes made by the Chinese Labor Bureau.
