What is an Employer of Record?

An Employer of Record (EOR) is an organization that helps companies expand internationally by hiring and paying employees on behalf of another company. EORs assume the responsibility for all formal employment tasks, including payroll processes and compliance documentation.

Simply put, using an Employer of Record (EOR) allows companies to legally and efficiently employ workers in other countries without having to set up a local entity or risk violating local employment laws.

How does it work?

An Employer of Record (EOR) officially hires employees in other countries on behalf of their client. For example, if your company is legally registered in the United States and you want to hire an employee in Portugal, you can do so through an Employer of Record (EOR).

In this partnership, the employer (client) is still in charge of the employee's day-to-day operations -- such as tasks, meetings, performance reviews, and termination decisions -- while the EOR handles the administrative burden of managing a foreign workforce.

How does Remofirst pay employees as an EOR?

Global employees' hours, time off, holidays, bonuses, and commissions are automatically calculated into the payroll via our platform. Remofirst invoices our clients (the employers) in either US Dollars (USD), Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), Canadian Dollars (CAD), or Singapore Dollars (SGD) each month and pays your global employees on time in their local currencies.

You can summarize your entire global team's payroll to aggregate them into one payment (instead of many individual payments).

How does an EOR
handle liability and compliance?

Worker misclassification is a serious breach of law with costly penalties, ranging from hefty fines to jail time. Remofirst helps you avoid expensive compliance mistakes by setting everything up according to your employee's local laws, which can prevent fines and lawsuits down the line.

Our team of HR professionals and legal experts will help you stay compliant and get ahead of changing regulations globally by keeping up with local updates in every country we service.

The customer support at Remofirst has been amazing — I love that our team has a dedicated account manager to help us with any things that come up for our remote team members, such as issuing work permits. I was looking for a simplified EOR service where I didn’t have to be so involved and could just pass our remote candidates along to be onboarded. Remofirst has made this experience very easy and personalized for us, and I am happy to be working with them to employ our team members in other countries.

Remofirst has helped us expand our team globally while managing the complicated tasks like termination processes in different countries. Their customer support is available at any time of day and always remind us when our contracts need to be updated. I can’t imagine what my life would be like without Remofirst.
Anna Tylechkina - Talent Acquisition Specialist @ Makini
When we were first looking into partnerships to support our remote team, the complexity and options were overwhelming. Remofirst was patient and explained how things work, often answering questions that I know were outside of what they technically do. This made me feel informed as a business owner and showed how the team goes above and beyond. Our team members who we've hired using our Remofirst partnership had glowing things to say about the experience.
Rachel Woods - CEO @ Vinebase
Remofirst’s pricing stood out to me among competitors, along with their 24-hour support, which is important when you’re hiring people around the world. Their platform has been easy to use and our onboardings have been smooth. I would definitely recommend using Remofirst as your EOR for any global hires.
