    Hi all,

    I am currently working for a dutch company in the Netherlands, which also have a office in Shanghai. I spoke to my boss and there are possibilities to go and work in Shanghai for some time, currently I would like 1-3 years.
    I have been in Shanghai before for an internship so I know about the city and the way of working in general. My questions is more about the financials.

    My boss is willing to send me to Shanghai but not with an ellaborate Expat package. He doesnt want to spend a lot of extra money as to compared as what i cost now.
    For me this is no issue as I dont want to go for the money but for the experience and adventure.

    My question is about the how the taxes will work.
    In the Netherlands we have a lot of social securities, which I might, partially, lose if I only pay taxes in China. Are there Dutch people here who can give some insight into that?

    Thanks in advane!

    Hello and welcome to EasyExpat.com.
    The most important is probably the health insurance. You should make sure you have a cover in case you need some medical treatment.

    You can look at blogs of other expats in China, they might be able to give you some tips: http://www.blogexpat.com/en/dir/china.htm

    Best of luck and see you soon on the forum :wave:
