Ask a Business Lawyer. Get Business Law Questions Answered ASAP.
Thank you for answering my question so fast. My final question would be, if I wanted to hire Chinese sales people on the ground and give them 5% commission-only (no base salary, and without a business location so that I can find more students, would I need to register my business in China?
And how do I calculate these employee commissions as a deduction when it comes times for taxes, since they are Chinese citizens?
Thank you so much for you excellent service. I agree - I also do not want to register in mainland China. I will follow your advice. I have bookmarked your page for future questions/referrals to friends in need of your expertise. Thanks and take care!
