What is an Employer
of Record?

An Employer of Record (EOR) is a service provider that allows companies to legally hire and work with employees in foreign countries without establishing their own legal entity in that country. This is made possible through a legal arrangement where the EOR establishes its own legal entity in the country and hires employees on behalf of the client company. This arrangement offers a viable solution for companies that wish to expand their global reach without investing in setting up a legal entity in every country where they operate.

If you're interested in learning more about EORs, international employment, and global payroll, we've compiled a comprehensive guide to provide you with all the information you need to understand EORs and their operations.

What are the benefits of using an Employer of Record?

Using an EOR to hire and manage employees globally has significant benefits. Establishing a formal business entity in a foreign country is a complex and risky process that requires deep knowledge of the regulatory systems in that country. An EOR minimizes compliance risk and simplifies the hiring process by providing immigration assistance, handling onboarding, payroll, and terminations, and managing the most sensitive regulated aspects of hiring and managing workers in another country.

By working with an EOR, companies can...

Eliminate the complexities and costs that come with opening their own legal entity in a foreign country

Accelerate their hiring process and avoid losing out on promising candidates

Ensure compliance with local employment laws and regulations by generating locally compliant employment contracts

Streamline their payroll process by handling local taxes, pensions, and statutory benefits

Offer their full-time global employees competitive benefits
