Why Technology Firms Need An International PEO

The technology market is one of the fastest growing industries around the world, with the digital sector accounting for 7.7% of the UK economy alone. This huge economic worth combined with the industry's ability to work remotely make it a popular sector for global expansion. Here's why technology firms need an international PEO or EOR to help facilitate that global expansion. 

Save On Time, Money and Resources

No one wants slow and costly technology. Likewise, you don't want your tech company's expansion to be slow and costly. When expanding into a foreign country you will have to set up a legal entity, potentially acquire work visas for your employees and get to grips with said country's employment laws and regulations. None of this is a quick process. Getting the in-depth knowledge of international employment legislation and complying with it, and setting up a legal entity is a process that can take ample resources, staff and cost - not to mention vastly increasing your time to market. 

A global PEO on the other hand, has first-hand experience in employment laws around the world, not to mention a dedicated team committed to helping your business expand. Meanwhile, as the legal employer of your international employees, a PEO removes the need for you to set up a legal entity, overall cutting your time to market and saving you valuable time, money and resources.

Why is a quick time to market so important for tech companies? We don't need to tell you that the tech industry is a heavily competitive world. From acquiring the top talent to getting your services or products out there, competition is rife. An accelerated time to market enables you to beat the competition by giving you earlier access to customers and talent. Meanwhile, we free up your staff and employees from arduous expansion-related admin so they can focus on dominating the competitive, global tech market. 

Expand Compliantly

Of course, work permits, global employment regulations and tax laws come with huge compliance risks for your business. An international PEO can take this risk from your shoulders. 

With years of experience helping businesses to expand globally and extensive experience of country-specific best practices, you can rest assured that all legislation is passed compliantly by your PEO, avoiding costly fines or endless red tape hindering your expansion.
