Frequently Asked Questions
Kinyu is based in a shared office complex which also includes private offices. Under the comprehensive service offering, a company can opt to have its China Desk team work in their closed private office, and even have its own private network installed. Each China Desk member, whether as part of a team or a streamline operator, will have its own senior manager assigned to them, and may only communicate vertically with their line manager.
Kinyu SCM will pay the salaries of all China Desk members, both streamline and comprehensive. The Comprehensive model allows the foreign company to control the salary of its China Desk members, whereas the Streamline model does not.
Yes, you can hire them under the comprehensive model. Kinyu will provide full background checks on the personnel you wish to hire and will provide extra interview services if needed.
Yes. If a foreign company uses the streamline service, they can give one month’s notice before discontinuing the engagement of the China Desk member. Under the comprehensive service, the company is obliged to provide notice and pay the redundancy fees payable under the labor laws of the P.R.C. Kinyu will endeavor to reallocate any comprehensive team members in order to avoid the foreign company paying redundancy fees.
The streamline model is a monthly flat fee with personnel, Kinyu platform and management built on. The fee structure of the comprehensive model is composed of three parts: the salary package of the team member; Kinyu platform fees; and Kinyu resource and consulting fees. Task Force is a unique service, where the price structure is decided after consultations with Kinyu SCM.
There is no fixed cost – each China Desk operation is tailored to the foreign company who takes it up. Everyone company has a different background, structure and requirements. Kinyu molds the product offering around such information.
Kinyu can appoint China Desk team members across China, and operate through its extensive shared office network. However, members get a preferential rate being based in Guangzhou.
An agent is not necessarily transparent with its dealings between the foreign company and a China partner. Kinyu also recruits its team members from trusted resources and provides background checks on potential candidates – finding an agent online can have hidden risks.
Kinyu has a broad industry network which is supported by its many cross sector partners. The Streamline model typically focuses on manufacturing and supply chain, whereas the comprehensive model can accommodate all industry sectors. If you are not in the manufacturing or supply chain sector, but want the benefits of streamline flexibility, Kinyu can connect you with a suitable partner or service provider.
