Hello, I am new to this forum and I wonder if someone has experience with internship matters.
I was offered an internship in Taipei and it seems that it isn`t as easy as I thought. I have been studying Chinese for almost 10 months and hold an ARC. The ARC belongs to the status “student” and allows not to work. At least not without work permit. For my understanding, under the laws of the ROC an intern does not have the status “employee” and is not work. Therefore, does an intern need to apply for an work permit?
Further, may an intern receive salary or a stipend? If the company pays a compensation or salary, are their any rules for the Accounting Department they have to follow? Does the company have to pay taxes?
Thanks for any help!
