China Foreign Teacher Requirements Breaking A China Teacher Contract
Notice to fellow-teachers working in China. We have received about a dozen emails from members and non-members alike that a clever tax ruse has been used to obtain more money back from foreign teachers by dishonest school administrators. In essence these unethical principals and administrators are deducting up to 30% from teachers pay for "taxes" that are collected but never paid to any tax authority!
If you work for a Chinese public school or university, or a foreign-owned international school, you need not worry about this scam. If however you work for a private Chinese company, or get paid through an agency you need to pay attention and ask for the following:
On pay day when you are asked to sign for your pay, ask for "an itemization of all deductions including tax". If no itemization is provided to you, send an email to the schools administrator and if you get back anything that shows a deduction for "taxes", reply with another email asking "Are these municipal, provincial, or central government taxes?"
If you get no cooperation at all from your school, send us an email in confidence, and we will check with the tax authorities without using your name in any way. If you want to know what you should legally be paying in tax here in China as an expat employee please use our free tax calculator at the below link, and remember, taxes vary by region. http://salary.directhr.net/
In an unrelated matter, please be aware that a fake white list is being circulated by Angelina's ESL Cafe showing all of the schools they work with as being "safe" and "endorsed by SAFEA".
Be advised that SAFEA does not "endorse" any school, nor does SAFEA publish any "white list". This is just a shameful marketing ploy
