I am currently working for a Taiwanese company but would like to leave that one and do freelancing work.
The ARC is the biggest problem, then tax issues, then health insurance.
For the ARC I guess I could sign up with a Chinese language school and get the ARC through them, give up 10 to 15 hours a week to do that. However, I’d rather use those hours for freelancing and doing visa runs every two months is not what I consider fun. Aren’t there other ways of doing this ?
Aren’t there companies here that provide services for freelancers that don’t require each freelancer to set up a legal company ? I basically pay them to hire me, provide an ARC for me, and other services. In the US there are companies that for some fee, take care of a mailing address, health insurance, tax related issues etc. I am looking for something similar in Taiwan. Well, I am probably dreaming…
In that case, can someone please advise me a person who can help me sort out my options ?? Does anyone have experience with starting up a foreigner as freelancer and getting him an ARC ?
I’d appreciate any help. I am getting a bit lost !
