Remote’s mission is to remove any obstacles between companies and the best talent, wherever they may have chosen to live. We do that by acting as an employer of record (EOR) or as a professional employment organization (PEO), taking care of payroll, benefits and compliance in every country in the world, so companies can focus on what matters most — their people. Today we’re simplifying our pricing model and reducing our fees, so that global employment can be accessible to even more organizations.

Employing globally through Remote costs one low flat fee, no matter where you hire. No onboarding or offboarding fees, no minimum contract length, no hidden costs, and no upfront deposits. To learn more about Remote's commitment to transparent pricing, see our Fair Price Guarantee.

Simpler and more affordable than ever

EORs have traditionally charged a percentage fee over total cost of employment. This was also Remote’s previous pricing model, which was set at 10%. Most global employment services charge 18-60% plus onboarding fees, and often they don’t provide the delightful experience that the best employers should offer their talent. Others charge a fixed fee, but their contract includes several hidden fees and long-term commitments that are often unsustainable for organizations.

What’s more, charging a percentage of total cost of employment discourages offering competitive salaries or giving salary bumps, as any increase in compensation or benefits would result in an increased fee. This runs contrary to our goal of creating opportunities everywhere and allowing companies to reward and delight their distributed teams.

Similarly, we won’t be charging more for employment in countries that are significantly more complicated and risky to employ people in. We’re built for scale, and employing in any country should cost the same.

Even faster onboarding

Getting started with Remote can now be done in a matter of minutes. We take in all information from both employer and employee, we send contracts and we’re all set. No more lengthy pricing conversations to explain how our percentage-based pricing is calculated. You simply pay for everything related to employing someone (salary, taxes, benefits), plus our comprehensive management pricing. Nothing else!

With increased transparency and clarity, employing your first hire anywhere in the world will be even faster. Stay tuned for even more ways in which we’ll simplify the onboarding experience in the future.
