I’ve just been removed as the official office representative without my consent. I find that very odd…
I work for a company headquartered abroad. Here in TW we just have a small team of developers, which – for reasons of the previous owner – is situated here. When said owner left, I became the next official office representative. Fully registered in the company registration. Bank accounts on my name. And all that.
Anyway, somewhat reluctantly I took on this responsibility, but over the past 2 years made it my own. I also made sure that our payroll and other accounting tasks were taken care of by a CPA here in TW.
Now HQ slowly wanted to have more control over their oversea offices and have them depend less on a person (I understand).
But then today:
The legal rep of HQ just tells me I’m removed as Office Representative and our CPA will take on this role. She also shared with me the new signature guidelines which was setup by the CPA. And I can see that the CPA has made a new company chop.
Now I’m very confused at the legality of this.
- How can the Office Representative just be changed without me knowing it? Can you just walk up to MOFA and say “remove that guy. Put my name on”?
- And what’s up with the new company chop?
Any thoughts on this? Am I missing some vital understanding, that in fact, this role is easy replaceable? Or should I really hear some alarm bells ringing?
