As Mauve Group’s representative in Singapore and the Asian market, Nick Gan discusses everything a company should be aware of when considering expanding its operations into Asia. He talks about the fastest-growing industries in the region, the new working trends that hit the market post Covid, the standard of living for expats and their dependents, and more.

Nick explains why companies are missing out on a huge market of potential customers by not establishing themselves in Asia, either through Mauve’s Employer of Record or entity set-up solutions. Finally, he highlights key considerations for global expansion, including staying up to date with the ever-changing rules and regulations that differ from country to country and explains why his clients prefer to engage an Employer of Record to ensure compliance and adherence to local laws.
