Hi Canadian Guy. Thanks for the response.
It's in the contract that I have to look after taxes. Their offer is 22,000 RMB/month, which I wasn't happy with, and now with the tax info you've given me, I think I will refuse. I know it's cheap to live there, but I'm still saving Canadian dollars to bring back to Canada, and that doesn't add up to much.
I also read another posting that China was thinking about putting laws into place that required companies to pay foreign nationals the same rate they'd get at home. That was from 2002, so I guess it didn't go through! This would be close to poverty level here with taxes at 25%.
Anyway, I'm concerned about retirement and losing opportunities here too, so all in all this is not looking like a good deal.
Where are you? What are you doing there (for 10 years?), and where in Canada are you from?
