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.

Benefits of using an Employer of Record

Speed – You can outsource all of your international HR needs and leave the details in the hands of someone who knows all the ins and outs of hiring in each country. Setting up an entity and your own local bank accounts can take months. EORs help you hire talent in a matter of days with less paperwork and legal requirements from your end.
Cost Reduction – It’s expensive to set up entities, manage compliance filings, and hire lawyers & accountants in each country. Instead, you can shift this burden to the EOR so they manage that cost and complexity on your behalf. Working with an EOR also means you won't need to incorporate in a new country before testing a potential market.
Oversight – If you are expanding into several locations at once, your team is too busy to keep track of employment compliance in an ever changing regulatory landscape. Your EOR will provide you global (and regional) expertise, and tech enabled solutions to view your global workforce in one place.

What our customers are saying

"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."
Janice Kay Mamo - Human Resources Manager @ Weavr
"Remofirst allows us to compliantly hire and manage employees in countries where we don't have an entity, in a cost-effective manner. This is helping Creatio scale its team worldwide and save time and costs while doing so! They had the best pricing of all the EORs we talked to, and the process of getting started was smooth even though we had a lot of questions. Their team is very kind and attentive in their support, and the platform has been easy to navigate. We just finished our onboarding and are excited to be working with Remofirst!"
Olivia H - Global HR Manager @ Creatio
"We had a candidate that we really wanted to hire, but she is in a different country, so we needed to use an EOR to make that happen safely and legally for both parties. Remofirst handled the contract and onboarding, and will now handle the payroll, making sure everything meets legal requirements. While their pricing is competitive, the real advantage of using Remofirst is their customer service and transparency. We were completely new to the world of EOR, and we had a specific person we wanted to hire, in a pretty short timeframe...but they happened to be in another country. Our Account Executive was helpful, responsive, and patient with our many questions, and offered us competitive pricing. Then the Customer Service Team got us all set up and ready to go with a quick turnaround."
Kelly R - Math Made Visible
"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
"Remofirst allows me to be employed remotely and be compliant in the country where I live. It is also super helpful when submitting and managing expenses. Altogether, it is an excellent addition to the main HR platform I use with its admin capabilities.I like how simple and intuitive the platform is. The navigation is clear, and the functionality is more than adequate, though. Getting things done on the platform is straightforward."
Martin P - Head of Marketing @ BetVictor
"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."
Kaniyet Rayev - Co-founder and CEO @ Appboxo
"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
