Adoption of remote work is accelerating

Across all industries, companies have experienced the benefits that remote work brings. From high-growth startups to the world's largest multinational enterprises, forward-thinking companies are moving to a remote-first model with employees all over the world.

These companies know flexible remote work policies will help them attract and retain top talent, increase diversity, and stay competitive in a fast-moving global market.

Building a distributed team poses big questions

If you start from scratch, you have to rethink legal, financial, and compliance responsibilities, not to mention plan for all the admin work. Going remote also means rethinking your culture, how teams communicate and collaborate, and how to create diverse and inclusive environments for all employees.

Fortunately, Remote is here to help — and we’re the experts on going remote. Before founding the company, Remote’s CEO helped build one of the largest remote-first organizations in the world, getting firsthand experience on the challenges of international expansion. As he discovered, working out the logistics of international hiring isn’t easy. We built Remote to remove the barriers to hiring internationally and make it easy for you to scale your team around the world.

Removing barriers to remote-first hiring


Onboard remote employees

You don’t need to set up local entities, or place long-term employees on less secure contractor models. As the employer of record, Remote takes on the risk, compliance, and responsibilities. You still manage day-to-day operations for your workers.

  • Pay employees in their local currencies direct to their bank account
  • Comply with international labor laws
  • Add employees to the platform to submit their employment information and salary payment details

A company determined to have ‘permanent establishment’ means they are liable to pay corporate taxes and meet strict compliance regulations in a country where they have employees or operations.
