Looking to Hire an Employee Overseas? 

When you’re asked to hire someone in a new country where you don’t have a legal entity, it can be overwhelming. Where do you start? How do you assess the risk of hiring overseas? How much does it cost? How do you get your employee set up? 

Hiring an employee in a foreign location can be risky, expensive and time-consuming. In fact, risk management and containing costs are cited to be the two biggest challenges for mobility professionals managing international assignments. 

When you use an Employer of Record solution to hire an employee overseas, we do all the heavy lifting for you. You’ll be able to give your business the answers they need. Wouldn’t it be great to go back and tell your team that not only can you hire your overseas employee quickly and easily, but you can also do it without setting up an entity – giving them all the costs and timelines upfront? 

The Employer of Record solution would be handy if you’re trying to: 

  • Hire and employ someone in a country where you don’t have a legal entity 
  • Hire a remote employee or team in a foreign country to run local operations
