So, if you are eligible to be taxed, how to make sure the correct rate for your income bracket ? Here are several steps.

1. Firstly, you should figure out your monthly income before taxed, and then subtract 4,800 RMB from it. (monthly income - 4,800 = taxable income)

2.Find the correct tax rate and deduction in the monthly taxable income chart.

Calculating your tax rate

Foreign teachers in China tend to earn between 5000 and 16,000 RMB per month. If your school has quoted your gross salary (before tax), you can use the calculation below to find out how much you will take home each month:

 

Monthly income – 3,000 RMB = Monthly Taxable Income

 

Monthly Taxable Income x Tax Rate – Quick Deduction = Tax Payable

 

Here are some examples:

 

Gross Salary: 7000 RMB

7,000 – 3,000 = 4,000

4,000 x 0.10 – 210 = 190

7,000 – 190 = 6,810

Net Salary: 6,810 RMB

 

Gross Salary: 10,000 RMB

10,000 – 3,000 = 4,000

4,000 x 0.10 – 210 = 490

10,000 – 490 = 9,510

Net Salary: 9,510 RMB

 

Gross Salary: 16,000 RMB

16,000 – 3,000 = 13,000

13,000 x 0.20 – 1,410 = 1,190

16,000 – 1,190 = 14,810

Net Salary: 14,810 RMB

* Salaries are calculated on a monthly basis.

Use a tax calculator. I find this one to be pretty accurate.

Usually they give you some tax free allowances in addition to a relatively small salary so tax is peanuts.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
