Working with an independent contractor management services provider like Remote will allow you to eliminate repetitive admin, minimise the chance of human error, and focus on the most important parts of your strategy.

Managing payroll for contractors is an important feature you should expect from service providers, but it’s one of many features to seek out. Legally compliant contract templates, facilitation of international payments, and withholding and paying taxes in multiple countries are equally as important.

It sounds like a lot — and it is — but working with a trusted service provider like Remote alleviates complexity and minimises risk. You get back so much time to focus on your own business instead of becoming an expert on labour regulations and tax laws in multiple countries.

Not all solutions are the same so it’s worth learning about the most useful elements of independent contract management and payroll services. Contracts tailored to local labour laws – and making faster, easier global payments – are only the starting point.

Help and advice from experts keep you nimble in making critical operating decisions. You can use Remote’s guidance to understand the nuances of onboarding contractors in more than 170 countries and get access to on-demand visa and immigration support.

Making contractor payments can drain your team’s resources, especially when you’re paying international contractors. Each new contract increases your workload. Staying compliant with relevant international legislation is almost impossible for any team focused on fast growth.

Paying independent contractors requires an accurate and scalable system before onboarding your first candidate. That includes keeping contracts compliant with labour and taxation laws in every country where your contractors operate. For example, in the United States, you must also collect and automatically generate appropriate tax forms for your contractors.

If you hire contractors in multiple countries, you need an easy way to pay invoices, in multiple currencies, without incurring hefty bank fees or conversion costs. Automating payments will future-proof your process, especially if you’re in a growth mode and bringing people on quickly. Automation also adds time-saving efficiencies when managing invoices with different payment terms.

We're happy to have you! Whether you are an existing Remote customer or new to our platform, you can always onboard, offboard, and manage independent contractors around the world with ease. Remote makes it simple to pay your contractors in their preferred currencies; manage invoices; automate payments; and keep track of important documentation. You only pay for active contractors on Remote, so if you stop working with a specific contractor for a few months, you don't need to do anything to save money. Remote automatically detects whether your contractors are active and only charges you when you actually use our services. For more information, see the Remote Fair Price Guarantee.
