Invest in your global team with a streamlined, cost-effective global hiring strategy

Global hiring is the future of work. Organizations across every industry are discovering how remote hiring policies help attract and retain the best talent, whilst saving time and money on maintaining expensive offices.

Building international teams usually come with high costs

If you want to hire international employees you need to establish a legal entity in every country where you plan to have workers. The cost of entering a new country is expensive — over $100,000 just for legal fees and incorporation, not to mention ongoing management costs. It’s also time-intensive, adding months of work to already-stretched finance, legal, and operations teams.

But there’s a faster and more cost-effective way that will help you achieve your global expansion goals without long-term commitments or costly compliance mistakes. When you partner with Remote, you get more than an employer of record service — you get our network of in-country legal and HR experts to support you at every step of the way. Whether you’re hiring your first international contractor or your 100th employee, we ensure your workforce is in full compliance with local laws. And with our flat and transparent pricing model, you can experiment in new markets before you fully commit.

Also known as “substance requirements”, some companies may be liable to pay corporation taxes and meet stringent compliance rules — but understanding if your operations trigger the rules can be confusing.

NO MIDDLEMEN

Direct relationships, no third party providers

Some global employment solutions outsource their responsibilities to intermediaries, resulting in delays, confusion, and higher costs. Remote operates its own entities in every location, allowing us greater accountability and flexibility across all the services we offer for one flat fee with no hidden charges.

Local legal entities distinguish EORs from PEOs. To hire employees in your target country without your own local entity, you need to partner with an EOR. This is true all over the world.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

The strongest IP protection

Intangible property – from invention rights to branding – can be confusing when working with employees across international borders. Remote IP Guard gives you maximum protection in every country we serve.
