It took a looong time, but I finally read every post in this thread and Llary’s original thread. The information is tremendous and greatly appreciated, but now I may be suffering from info overload and can’t decide whether to go with a RO, branch office or local company. Advice would be very welcome.
I will be “retiring” to Taiwan soon with my wife. She is Taiwanese, so I will get a JFRC. But our daughter wants to come with us and is over 18, so not eligible for JFRC. She will be trying to start a career as an illustrator and since I write children’s books, we will make a good team. We will register a business in the UK and hope to produce books for sale anywhere in the world (possibly, but not necessarily, in Taiwan). Opening an RO, branch office or local business with my daughter as the rep or a foreign employee would be a way to keep her in the country. Does anyone have a suggestion which would be best? :ponder:
Initially, the business would have little revenue and I would pay her salary from my pension. Also, there would not be much legit RO work for her that we could document until we start buying a lot of printing. My other question is, would all three routes lead to her qualifying for an APRC after 5 years?
