Interesting but I am curious as to if this is only from the Tax side of things? This then implies that under 80000NT$ per month you don’t need a business license, but still report the income as an individual … But then don’t you still need a work visa in relation to it? I guess if you have an APRC this is a non-issue, but what about for those who don’t?
I have always wondered how this can work as a foreigner living in Taiwan with an online business … I guess the business could be incorporated in another country and you could deal with the taxes there until it makes over a certain amount, asking as you are above board with declaring how much it makes.
My wife and I both have online businesses we are cultivating, and are thinking of moving back to Taiwan in the next few years - we would then have to work for 5 years ( at a different job ) before getting an APRC and we would rather not stop doing our online businesses in that period. Thus why this thread is very relevant for us - neither of out companies is likely to break the 80K NT$ threshold anytime soon. I have no idea how to navigate this problem at this point, and am up to suggestions.
