Since autumn 2017 PKF Fasselt Schlage holds the event series “PKF China-Talk“. About 35 representatives of Chinese companies participated at the 6th PKF China Talk on 9 April 2019 on the topic “Work and residence permits: employment of Chinese professional and managerial staff in Germany”.
Thomas Schifferdecker, expert in the field of Global Mobility Management, gave a lecture and explained different types of working titles and residence permits along with the related regulations for self-employment and paid employment in Germany. To complement these, Kai Yu - project manager at Duisburg’s economic development agency (GFW), gave the audience advice on the structure of a business plan and highlighted the key issues for Chinese companies and investors.
The requirements for gainful employment as well as the process of starting a business represent a challenge for many Chinese companies investing in Germany. To ensure a successful cooperation, it is therefore essential to have local experts who are familiar with the requirements of the German market. The China Desk of PKF Fasselt Schlage accompanies Chinese companies on their way to Germany as well as in the further day-to-day business and provides support to German companies who are cooperating with Chinese investors.
