Also, what are the requirements to do freelance work in TW for TW companies. Do you need an ARC? Can you get one without being sponsored by a company?
To legally do any work you need an ARC. You can only get one without being sponsored by a company through marriage. There is no such thing as a freelance ARC.
However you could open up a foreign registered business for yourself, get an ARC. Taiwan companies would want you to be able to issue a GUI receipt for work performed. For that you need a company.
