Our one-stop PES solution  

Our Professional Employment Services (“PES”) supports companies in their pre-market entry so that they can enter into new markets faster and more effectively.

We handle HR related matters such as payroll, work pass applications, and employee benefits, giving you the peace of mind to tackle new markets and customers, and not be encumbered by the complexity of regulatory obligations in various jurisdictions.

Backed by a team of certified professionals from specialised domains, we are well-positioned to address your unique business needs, and help you penetrate new markets with ease.



Benefits of engaging our PES team

  • High-quality HR services: Companies can expect better quality hires, with higher retention rate and lower turnover rate

  • Reduced costs: Minimise costs in administering payroll and staff benefits, and costs incurred by staff turnover
  • Data security: We maintain staff data with utmost security and confidentiality
  • Streamlined expansion into new markets: Entering into a new market, especially China, can be complex and risky. SBA Stone Forest has been offering business advisory services to internationally active companies for the past 20 years. You can engage our team of experts in major cities for business support in legal, accountancy, tax, and corporate compliance matters. We can support you at different stages of your business cycle, including transition into a wholly owned subsidiary on a solid foundation.
