Hey there my international brothas n sistas…
Gotta few issues here that may effect those staying here long enough to get APRCs…
Well, like the title says: Factors that my effect your APRC status in the future.
A lot has been written about how to procure an APRC, but
little or nothing on how to keep it.
We all know that the easy NT$100 Open Work Permit is required, and then the general
concensus is that “now you’re free to do what you want, as long as you’re qualified”.
But not having to get an ARC anymore surely comes with its own dangers.
A few of my queries include:
1.) Since there’s no need for an ARC, there’s also no need to ever ask if your school
is in fact legally operating with a recognized license…what if they are raided,
and you are accused of working at a school without a license?
2.) The same goes for private lessons… are you allowed to teach privates
now that you have an APRC? And up to how many students are allowed in one lesson?
5 or 6 I’ve heard…
3.) Finally, what are the chances of being screwed over when paying tax…Having to
keep track of all those privates and schools?
Others might also want to know factors that influence them if they have opened their
own vendor or little business…
I ask all this as I’m a bit worried that my current school doesn’t have a license. I’m
only part-time there… and I should ask, but I fear insulting the boss, so thought I’d
first try to find out what the opinions are out there…
