Default Paying China contractor in Singapore?

We are located in Atlanta Georgia.

Can I pay our contractor in China to their account in Singapore?

Is that legal? The work will be done in China but they do have a Singapore office. We just don't want any issues or problems.

Default Re: Paying China contractor in Singapore?

I wish to inform you that you may have an agreement with Singapore office with a provision that their China office will be supplying on their behalf. In absence of such a contract there is no direct consideration involved to Chinese contractor and thus your agreement may lack consideration. Further by paying abroad you may be regarded as accomplice in actions by Chinese law enforcement if Chinese party indulges in avoidance of tax or other practices.

Unless the Singapore office is involved in the work you would appear to be evading the law in China and I would not advise making payments to another unrelated office.
