Recent reports suggest that Chinese companies are now offering packages that match or beat those of overseas competitors, meaning that foreign companies lack some of the pull they once enjoyed. 
As competition for the best talent continues to escalate, and retention of outstanding staff remains a key challenge for many organisations in China, the BritCham/CBBC HR & Training Forum invites you to join our panel discussion to hear three experts in law, tax and HR offer new ways to restructure your compensation offering to attract and retain the best staff. 
Members and non-members of BritCham/CBBC are welcome. We are pleased to offer members a half-price discount.
1. Legal
Johnny Choi, Managing Associate at Simmons & Simmons, Beijing
As demand for talent grows, companies are seeking ways to maximise the effectiveness of their compensation and benefits packages to retain and attract new talent. In this session, we will examine different types of incentive compensation and benefits and how to structure the terms and conditions around them to maximise their effectiveness and avoid pitfalls. We will cover:
  • Bonuses (sign-on bonus, retention bonus and discretionary performance bonus)
  • Thirteenth month salary and allowances
  • Commercial insurance plans
  • Stock options
  • Benefits in kind
  • Training contracts
  • Company offered leave

He has extensive experience in all areas of employment law and expertise in advising financial institutions and multinational clients on employee compensation and incentive schemes. He also recently led a number of investigations into alleged corruption at PRC subsidiaries of multinational companies and advised the clients on related compliance and employment issues.

2. Tax
Huan Wang, Director of Global Employer Services, Tax at Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Certified Public Accountants LLP, Beijing branch
Nowadays offering a tax-efficient compensation package is one of the key factors in attracting employees. In this session, we will discuss tax-planning opportunities for both expatriate and local employees, in particular:
  • Offering tax-free benefits to foreign employees;   
  • Claiming time apportionment filing by foreign senior executives;
  • Utilising the preferential taxing method granted to annual bonus and stock-based incentive plans;
  • Tax deferral treatment to enterprise annuities

3. HR
