Re: Out side China job offers

The situation in Shanghai jobs wise should be clear on the 17th of January when the local education committee makes a policy statement on the future of the city's education. This is the day before all the schools and government workers go on CNY holiday for a month. This hopefully will shed some lig...

Re: Search Job Fair Demise

I have to agree with the OP, SA job fairs are no longer what they use to be since last century. Looking at the schools they have advertised for in China and cross reference with those schools on this sites database you wouldn't want to work for 95% of them reading the comments. So many other Agencie...

Re: China New Tax Law

Just had it confirmed from several different sources that the Rent/Housing Allowance from the 1st of January will be combined to generate the monthly income for taxation purposes. I know one school that has basically stated to the taxman that the tuition fees for teaching staff has already been paid...

Re: China New Tax Law

True not many teachers will surpass the 960k consolidated income mark for the 45% tax band. However it will be very easy for a teachers combined salary and benefits to jump from 25% tax band(under 420k or 35k/month) into the 35% taxation, this is where I calculate I will be after the 1st January. Th...

Re: China New Tax Law

This is the best description yet I have read that explains the new tax regulations. It has some quiet simple examples of how the new regulations may unfold. The idea of grouping all your income into one lump some and calculating all your taxation from there is alarming. It also highlights why school...

Re: China New Tax Law

I have it confirmed from teachers at a couple of the franchise international schools in Shanghai that there are plans to "absorb" the taxation on tuition fees for the remainder of the year and this year only. Maybe the schools will send out "wechat" payments to cover the addition...

Re: China New Tax Law

I did try to explain that the figure I calculated was after the rent has been paid. The renal allowance ends up in your landlords pocket and so I did not include it in my calculations. If fact you may have to dig into the 13k/per month to cover the loss of rental money due to the changes, your land ...

Re: China New Tax Law

Should note that the 13k rmb/month in the bank is after the rent payment, still doesn't make it look any better.

Re: China New Tax Law

At the moment the teacher in the last post gets a good deal. A combination of salary, housing and tuition fees add up to 680k rmb and only 75k rmb tax is payable. Under the new regulations as written and this is in my opinion the worst possible outcome, the same 680k gross income will result in 200k...

Re: Out side China job offers

I wish one large multinational company well in China having to recruiting for 25 schools in 10 cities. They have arranged their own job fairs in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou to scrape the bottom of the barrel in recruitment. Any starting salary for a QTS teacher should be minimum 36k and 12k for ...

Out side China job offers

Has anybody currently outside of China been offered a job inside China? All the schools I have interviewed for in China are only considering applications from teachers already in the country.

Re: China New Tax Law

During my visit to the tax office the friendly official basically said the rent, flight and tuition fees will be taxable at 25%. If will be impossible for schools to absorb the taxation on the higher tuition fees of 300-400k as it is individual teachers responsible for paying their own tax liabiliti...

Re: China New Tax Law

I have to visit the Shanghai tax office next week to get some documents printed, so I will wonder round to the tax information desk and ask if anybody knows what will happen 1st January.

Re: China New Tax Law

In Shanghai some schools offer 12 - 15000rmb a month housing allowance, the implications of having that added to your taxable earnings is disastrous. Not only will the teacher pay additional tax on this amount but it will place the teacher into a higher tax bracket, so they could end up pay 30 - 35%...
