Sure, they will (around 23% tax in total). However I am still asking because in France or UK for instance, each month you have some taxes on your gross salary, taken directly by the company for the government, and then at the end of the year you receive by mail another taxes on net salary.

--> is it the same in China ? Or, after the monthly taxes, there is nothing more to pay ?

I can only speak from personal experience and I have only paid monthly taxes and have worked here for years, never had any request for a second tax based on net salary.

Also I have never paid as much as 23% but my wife is chinese and she usually organises things with the accounts department, and she never gave details on this. It is how they work, best for me not to ask.

Have you discussed the possibility of paying tax to your own government instead of the Chinese government, I believe this can be done, contact your embassy and ask them.

Edit to add; They usually paid part of my salary into my wife's account and claimed her as one of the workers thus keeping my salary below a certain tax threashold.

About housing, what do you think about 8 park avenue compound ? It looks very nice and well furnished, nice club, area and quite close to my office.

As a reminder, my budget is maximum RMB 20k/month, charges excluded (electricity, gaz, internet,..
).

In those places check the actual gym quality. This is where they squeeze out money. Also be aware that you include club membership in your contract (it's not as logical as it seems). Another good method to establish the quality of service is by the level of finishing (paint/tiles). The better, the better the service will be. Same for Internet & TV. Looking at the subway system these days you can live anywhere in a radius of 5-7km and be at your office in 30 min so focus on your personal needs ( space, food/beverage, entertainment etc).
