Hong Kong is a long haul

Hong_kong_skyline_at_night As we all know, we work far too hard and far too long in this country. Frankly, TS is vastly underpaid for the 10 hours we spend working each week. But for accountants the situation can be far worse.

Next time you contemplate complaining to the boss, however, as he dumps another load of work in your in-tray, spare a thought for your poor counterparts in Hong Kong.

A recent report stated that accountants out there usually work 12 hours a day. This goes up to 15 hours during busy times and includes weekends and holidays.

So, if you’re looking for more endeavour for your reward, make sure you think carefully about any transfer to the HK office.
