the situation is simple ( again )
I am with the company since may 2015.
The contract expire in may 2017.
I pay every month the normal tax ratio.
However i still didn’t sign the new contract as i want to evaluate all different opportunities.
The HR sent me an email this morning, explaining that because i didn’t sign yet, they need to increase the tax to 10% ( i know it is not so much) but i always play by the rules.
i would like to know if the current situation is LEGAL.
please have a look at the email and let me know what you think ( i mean, comment if 100% sure) as i feel they just trying to pressure me to sign using any kind of tool ( in this case, hitting the wallet)… i may be wrong.
ps: i believe that they just don’t know and the HR being slightly mean - they are all good guys in here but it just seems quiet weird to be honest.
the new contract for foreign employee was requested by Ministry of Labour normally need to apply 4 months before exipry day.
we fully knew your concern, but the income tax 10% need to be deducted in case the foreign employee’s annual renew contract (started from January) has not been confirmed.
Now XX = HR will not deduct your 10% income tax in January salary, but in case you decide not to renew after Chinese New Year holidays, she will deduct two months (Jan & Feb) of income tax together. Hope this is clear to you.’’’’’’
what do you think guys???
