Nomad Temporary Housing opens Shanghai, China Office with Full Fapiao Invoicing Capability

Published on Friday, October 15th, 2021 by Gavan James

Nomad Temporary Housing is pleased to announce we have now formed two Chinese corporate entities to serve our clients throughout China. Nomad has operated serviced apartments in all core markets, and many secondary markets in China, since 2011 from our long-established office in Hong Kong. Our new entity, Nomad Temporary Housing (Shanghai) Limited, now provides full serviced apartment fapiao invoicing capabilities via our rental subsidiary.

The fapiao invoice is a legal receipt for goods and services in China, and is required for a Chinese company to deduct expenses for tax purposes. Only registered Chinese entities can issue fapiao. Only firms that have a real estate subsidiary to their China corporation can produce fapiao for serviced apartments.

Nomad’s leader for our China companies is Bushra Siddiqui, an eleven-year veteran of the APAC relocation industry. “Opening the Nomad Shanghai corporations have been a rewarding, and quite extended, process. This has been especially so during the COVID pandemic. We could not have achieved this without the flexibility of the Chinese government and our local accounting partners. We are excited to provide this new level of service”, states Bushra.

Speaking of service, Nomad is recognized as the top serviced apartment provider in the world by both our valued clients, as well as the industry. Nomad has earned forty-five client awards, or top industry rankings, in the last five years. For 2020, Nomad was ranked #1 in the Employee Relocation Survey conducted by Trippel Survey & Research. Nomad has achieved a #1 ranking from Trippel Survey eight times since 2013.
