Sorry to bother you guys but at this point I'm quite desperate...
I will be coming back to Taiwan to open up my own place in Kaohsiung, I've been working on it for months but they make it so difficult for me and my girlfriend
Anyway, please let me share you my problem: as a foreigner, I've been told (by different accountants in Taiwan) the only option I have is to start a limited company (if I want to do it legally without help of taiwanese friends) wich is fine for me, I have the money to start up and through that I can have ARC and workpermit, but since today I know it's not possible for my girlfriend to have an ARC and workpermit through this business, eventhough she will work as much as I do and spend as much money as I do. That's my big problem...
Do you have any idea how we can both stay in Taiwan and work?
The only things the accountants can say to me is:
-you get married (then she will receive ARC but no workpermit)
-start her own limited company so she can get ARC and workpermit (but that's really crazy, 1 business will be difficult enough)
Can I for example hire her? or do you know if there are other options?
Hope you can help me a little bit because as I told you before I'm getting quite desperate. we both dream about coming back to Taiwan everyday but the government makes it so damn difficult..
anyway, thanks in advance and hope to get a reply from you soon!

I did ask accountants and indeed this is possible but impossible for me,
I want to start up a limited company wich requires a capital of 500,000NT wich is doable,
in order to have an arc and workpermit for my girlfriend another type of company is required with a capital of 5million NT and a turnover of 10 million NT per year in order to renew our arc and workpermit but that is impossible for me as I don't have that kind of money and also quite impossible to make 10 million NT selling food and drinks...
