Living cost in shanghai

HI,

I am planning to move to Shanghai for work and my monthly salary will be around 16000 RMB. Can I know the taxes imposed on this salary and after tax deduction will it be enough for a decent life in this city? Thanks in advance

It is enough for decent lifestyle. It depends if the company is paying your taxes or you need to do it yourself. In case you need to do it your self you need them to teach how to use fapiers.

Thankyou JRE_China for your info. "In case you need to do it your self you need them to teach how to use fapiers."  I am sorry I didn't get this sentence.

In China fapier or a bill (that has your companies tax ID) this every worker can use to reduce the amount they pay tax. It very common that ppl need to collect 3000-10000 rmb worth of fapier to reduce the tax from their salary.
