Working as a freelancer in Taiwan


A lot of expats dream of becoming self-employed: we would like to help you to make that dream come true.

Can foreigners work as self-employed in Taiwan? What are the formalities to work as a freelancer?

What are the pros and cons of this status: social security, tax system, etc.?

How is the freelance market in Taiwan?

Thank you in advance for sharing your experience,



I am currently looking to set up in Taiwan to work in communication (web design, graphic design, etc.).

Like yourself, I would like to know what is the best, open a legal company ? work as freelancer ? Is there a freelancer legal status ?

I don't start from nothing cause I am not alone and already have a company name/portfolio in Vietnam but I would like to expand with a new one in Taipei. What is the best solution ?

Thanks for letting us know,



I'm in the same situation, if you find out what is necessary to work as a freelance in Taiwan please share that information.
