Contact Our Experts

Expanding your business globally is an exciting and daunting step. While recruiting the support of an Employer of Record can help to ease the burden of your global expansion, it can also raise a lot of questions about EOR services. We’re here to answer as many of those as we can with our EOR FAQs.

What is a Employer of Record (EOR)?

First things first, what is an EOR? An EOR is the legal employer of employees within a certain country. While business still take care of the day-to-day management of employees, an EOR takes care of payroll, compliance, taxes, employment contracts and much more. 

What are the benefits of an EOR?

Global expansion is incredibly complex with international employment laws and processes taking up extensive time, cost and resource for growing businesses. 

An Employer of Record (EOR) can take all of this liability from your shoulders and prevent you from needing to set up a legal entity in your chosen country of expansion. By complying with foreign employment laws, on-boarding employees and running payroll on your behalf, an EOR ensures speed to market as well saving you money in the long term.

What businesses need an EOR?

Put simply, any size or sector of business can employ an EOR . An EOR is favoured especially by smaller businesses and start ups who perhaps do not have the benefit of additional resource to navigate global compliance. 

At Leap29 we frequently offer Employer of Record services for businesses working in technology,  Engineering and Construction, Oil & Gas, Pharmaceuticals, Renewable Energy and Technology.

Is an EOR the same as PEO?

Put simply, yes. A PEO and EOR both manage the employment of your international hires meaning you don't have to set up a legal entity. In certain countries, the US for example, the term PEO is preferred, however, both terms are generally used interchangeably.
