Comparing manufacturing in China vs USA
During my 20 years living in Asia, I’ve owned a number of different business entities in greater China, ranging from China WFOE’s to HK holding companies to virtual offices. In some cases the teams were set up to sell to China and in other cases we were buying from China.
China is not only a massive market but it changes rapidly, so I don’t claim to be an expert on all aspects of your China business; and anybody that claims to know “everything about China” should not be taken seriously! I’ve had my share of success as well as failure, and in this whitepaper I’d like to share some of the key lessons, pitfalls and best practices that I learned the hard way when answering the deceptively simple question of “how much does it cost to hire staff and rent space in China?”.
Read on to find out what you can expect from this whitepaper and how it will benefit you…
“What can you expect?”
This whitepaper covers the following:
- Factory and office staff: Comparison of US & China
- Labor rates explained
- Work hours explained
- Mandatory benefits explained
- Taxes explained
- Severance explained
- 12 month forecast for wages, rents and the RMB exchange rate
- Options for outsourced manpower and infrastructure
“How will you benefit from this whitepaper?”
While the concepts discussed in this whitepaper may be of interest to anyone that wishes to do business in China, regardless if you are on the buy or sell side of the transaction with China. Readers who are thinking about setting up their own offices or factories in China will find the white paper particularly useful.
This probably isn’t the first article you’ve read about China business. So to provide real value for the readers, in addition to some of the “you probably know already” stuff included in this whitepaper that is common knowledge and generally agreed among experienced China business professionals, I have added the following bonus sections:
- “You may not know” provides insider information that comes with 20 years’ experience serving on both sides of the buyer-seller relationship in China.
- “Dangerous not to know” may or may not be common knowledge, but you better be aware of it either way.
