Scaling Your Business Successfully with Our Global HR Solutions

Essential considerations when expanding your team globally

Looking to expand your business operations to get a foothold into new markets?

Perhaps you want to test a new market before fully committing considerable time and finances setting up a new entity?

You could be scrambling to ensure your new staff are paid compliantly post-merger or acquisition?

Whether employing new permanent staff or engaging self-employed short-term contractors, there are essential considerations to legally scale your team overseas, ensuring that your company does not fall foul of local laws and risk hefty fines.

Global expansion is an achievable goal for many companies worldwide but can be complex and daunting to venture into a new country in which you have never operated before.

Every country has its own legislation with regards to employment law, benefits, taxation, payments and employer responsibilities which you must comply with.

Local employment and taxation laws also differ depending on whether the worker is self-employed, or a permanent employee and many countries now have laws to ensure that the category of worker is correctly assessed for tax purposes.

There is a considerable risk of ‘deemed employment’ whereby self-employed workers could be deemed as operating as employees for law or tax purposes – which is a significant risk for the hirer who would be liable in case of lost taxes or employee benefits.

Companies can also risk being classified as a ‘permanent establishment’ in-country and incur tax demands, penalties and reputational damage.

So what is the solution?
