Due to the rapid development of the coronavirus situation in the People’s Republic of China and around the world, many companies have initiated business continuity planning to protect their staff and mitigate the impact on their business operations. In maintaining business continuity, there are several people-related issues to consider, including how to manage a cross-border workforce and changes to employment and remuneration terms

Our document highlights the key considerations for these issues from high level tax, legal, and immigration perspectives to facilitate conversations with human resource, tax, and finance teams in your business continuity planning.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to our People Services team if you would like to discuss these issues in further detail.
