By working with an independent contractor management service like Remote, you can eliminate redundant admin tasks, lower the risk of human error, and focus on the most critical aspects of your strategy.

Managing payroll for contractors is an essential feature to expect from these services, but it’s only one part of what you need. Localized contract templates, managing international payments, and handling taxes in various countries are equally crucial.

Navigating the complexities of global contractor management might seem overwhelming, but teaming up with a trusted provider like Remote simplifies the process and reduces risks. This way, you can dedicate more time to your business rather than becoming an expert in global labor laws and tax regulations.

Not all solutions are identical, so it’s essential to learn about the most valuable features of contractor management and payroll services. Contracts compliant with local labor laws and streamlined global payments are just the basics.

Expert guidance keeps you flexible in making important decisions. Remote’s support helps you navigate the nuances of onboarding contractors in over 170 countries and provides on-demand visa and immigration services.

Managing payments for contractors, especially international ones, can strain your team's resources. Each new contract adds to the workload, making compliance with global regulations tough for a growing team. A scalable and precise system is crucial for paying independent contractors and ensuring contracts meet local labour and tax laws. For instance, in the US, appropriate tax forms must be collected and generated.

To handle payments across multiple countries, an efficient system to manage various currencies without hefty fees is needed. Automating this process not only future-proofs your setup but also simplifies handling diverse payment terms.

We’re delighted to have you with us! Whether you’re a current Remote customer or new to our platform, you can effortlessly onboard, offboard, and manage independent contractors globally. Remote makes it straightforward to pay your contractors in their chosen currencies, handle invoices, automate payments, and keep track of essential documents. You only pay for active contractors on Remote, so if you stop working with a contractor for a few months, you don’t need to take any action to save money. Remote automatically checks whether your contractors are active and only charges you for services you‌ use. For more details, see the Remote Fair Price Guarantee.
