I tried to find some info as well ... nobody seems to know anything, and the people working there are very quiet ..
T+C's with commuting look good, and Shenzhen is apparently a good place. A friend of mine applied and never heard anything .... shame, as this could be an indicator for future communication ..

They area a start up and still going through training and rostering issues. The pay is high because the Chinese taxes are not paid for you, subtract about 30% for taxes. They will be a good player in 2 years but still going through initial growth phase problems.

According to the table on the smile-aviation website, the numbers are net, after tax paid.

Go back and read it again, no mention of net after taxes, it WLL be taxed at about 30%.

Click on the link and read the top part of the table: Terms and conditions, where it says (USD/After Tax), I don't see how it could be much clearer.

You were quite categorical in your second post, stating there was no mention of net after taxes, whilst in fact it was clearly stated on Smile-aviation's website.
I cannot verify the correctness of the information on Smile-aviation's website, but at the moment SF is not the only company offering more than 200.000 USD net, I therefore find no reason to doubt their information.
But don't worry, I already wrote a mail to Smile asking them to verify, as I like to deal with fact instead of speculation. ;)

Sometimes you can tell people good first hand information, but they prefer to get their information from some unknown website. I doubt Smile whatever has a copy of the contract, like this:
2、Constitution of the Foreign Pilot Remuneration
The remuneration of the foreign pilots include: basic monthly salary, scale wage (for FO), Position
Allowance, Layover Allowance, Contract Safely Completion Bonus (for Captain), etc. All items listed below
