Case Studies - General

Study 1 - The Client:

a British financial services software company won a new client in Hong Kong who required some customisation of the product. This meant putting consultants on the ground in Hong Kong for between 6-9 months. They looked into sponsoring their staff directly and then tried to find local companies they could partner with, both to no avail. They found and through our locally based partner company we organised Hong Kong visa sponsorship and local Hong Kong pay-roll for the project team.

Study 2 – Contractor:

a London based recruitment agent, Mick, had been given a job spec for a contractor to work in Hong Kong. The contractor was a New Zealand national and would require both Work Permit sponsorship and local pay-rolling for the duration of his contract in Hong Kong. Mick, having dealt with Contractor Taxation for a number of international contract assignments contacted us immediately. We were able to provide him with costs and timeframes for Work Permit sponsorship and he was able to get back to his client immediately with a solution. With our local partner we now sponsor several of Mick’s Hong Kong (and other Asian) based contractors on local Work Permits and provide local Hong Kong payroll.
