Establishing and maintaining a focus on a Representative Office’s (RO’s) core objectives requires efficient and reliable support functions such as accounting, payroll, IT, HR and management. However, the limited budgets and scarce human resources which characterize many ROs make it difficult to get the necessary support.
As a consequence, RO managers find themselves devoting time to administrative functions such as RO establishment procedures, registrations, accounting, IT, human resources, payroll and taxation, just to name a few.
While these functions are necessary, they take time. Time you seldom have. Worse, your performance is mostly assessed on generating new business or relationships rather than attending to administrative details.
