Hi everyone, I would like to clarify or get some insight from you about my understanding of APRC:
by getting APRC, then I can register to get “open working permit (OWP)”. by OWP can I have double jobs? first job is with my current company, the other maybe some consultant job (hired by another employer/company) that don’t requires me to be in office. is that true?
about the 2nd job, can I do a self-employed job ? what requirements or regulation needed to follow?
with APRC, can I rent a 1st floor store and open a grocery shop or a food stall or a small restaurant there? what permits needed? and how to make it legal?
if I open a grocery shop or small restaurant, can I employ my wife who is in dependent ARC? do I need make it formal with authority (on employ my wife)?
is there any channel to consult about my plan with authority (phone, email, etc) ?
I learn from EZ Work Taiwan website , it seems that spouse of ARC/APRC holder is eligible to take part-time job. but I can’t find information if the spouse can work into business that form by her husband. The qualification in that page also seems a bit complicated to follow. in my case, I wish there are easy way to hire my wife in my own shop/food-stall.
Hi thanks for your prompt reply.
about the self-employed job, I dream to open an IT-consultancy business, freelance or similar.
but I wondering how do I can issue an invoice to my customer and report my earning to tax office?
I read in some post, the youtuber that work and get paid in Taiwan, they just come and report how much their earn to Tax office every year. that is kind of self-employed job too, right?
If you’re wife is on a dependent ARC, she can’t work at all, not for you or for any company. She can get her own APRC 5 years after you get yours if all other conditions are met. Best not to risk it until then.
