Employer of record in China
What is an Employer of Record (EOR)?
An Employer of Record (EOR) is a service provider that assumes the role of the official employer for a company’s contingent workforce or remote employees in the country of service, such as China with HROne. Our EOR service enables overseas businesses to compliantly hire employees (full-time and contractors) in China by outsourcing the administrative and legal responsibilities associated with employment in China while retaining control over day-to-day management of their employees.

With HROne, your employees can start working legally in China while your company’s registration is underway.

Frequently Asked Questions
Payroll & mandatory benefits are included in our China Employer of Record and our PEO services.
In many countries, PEO and EOR are the same thing and can be interchanged. However in countries such as China and the USA, PEO and EOR refer to different services:
With Employer of Record (EOR), the service provider takes on the responsibility & liability of the employer since the client does not have a legal entity in the country of interest.
With Professional Employment Organization (PEO), the service provider manages hiring, employment and payroll, but does not take on the responsibility or liability of the employer since the client has a legal entity in the country of interest.
The 13th month bonus in China refers to a bonus equal to one month’s salary that is usually paid at the onset of Chinese New Year.
This 13th month bonus is not mandatory unless explicitly stated in the labor contract upon signing. A 13th month bonus depends on the company’s performance as well as the employee’s performance.
It is possible for employees to receive an even higher bonus (14th or even 15th month bonus) depending on these factors.
