Peter Yerardi,

Our employer of record (EOR) services supports your expansion into Australia's free, affluent economy. 

Known to have a strong, highly developed economy and thriving service sectors, it is no surprise that Australia is a prime location for expanding businesses. 

Despite its strong, developed economy and sound international orientation, expanding into Australia can be challenging. First and foremost, establishing a subsidiary in Australia, as with any country, is a time-consuming, lengthy and expensive process. Meanwhile, the National Employment Standards (NES) has a raft of legal requirements that employers need to meet. Some of these include:

  • Entitling employees to sick and carer's leave
  • Setting out a set probationary period
  • Employees must not work over the 38-hour working week
  • Both full and part-time employees in Australia are entitled to at least four weeks of annual leave at full pay
  • Notice periods vary depending on service duration
  • Registering with and contributing to the tax office and social security organisations

To work in Australia, employees also need a permanent work visa which must be nominated by their employer. Without such a nomination, employees can only be issued a temporary visa, capping their stay at four years. 

The combination of the NES, visa requirements and process of setting up a legal entity can make entering Australia seem near impossible. Our EOR services can help you expand into Australia easily and quickly without the time constraints of a legal entity and the compliance risk of navigating complex employment legislation. 

What is an Employer of Record?

An EOR, otherwise referred to as a PEO is a third-party service that takes on the work of international employment on your behalf. This means that an EOR takes responsibility for HR and employee management while you remain responsible for the day-to-day management of your employee. Our Australian EOR service includes:

  • Facilitating employment contracts
  • Complying with the National Employment Standards (NES)
  • Paying taxes and social security contributions
  • Running payroll 
  • Providing employee benefits

In addition to this, an employer of record allows you to expand into Australia without setting up a subsidiary.

Why do I need an Employer of Record in Australia?

In order to employ and complete business in Australia, companies need to set up a legal entity. This process is not only lengthy and costly but is also one that is full of compliance risks and red tape all of which extend and complicate your time to market. Add to this navigating the NES and expanding into Australia becomes a time consuming and costly process that requires considerable resources. This is where our Employer of Record services come in. 

By partnering with an Employer of Record, you can reap the benefits of Australia's free economy and thriving service sectors without the complex and costly process of establishing a legal entity. With experience working with the NES and up to date knowledge on visa requirements you can be assured that your expansion into the "island continent" is compliant with all the necessary regulations met.

Meanwhile,  we can also manage tax, employee onboarding and Australia's social security system to make yours and your employee's experience in Australia as seamless as possible. 

Our extensive experience as a recruitment partner also provides us with the added knowledge around business best-practices in Australia allowing you to compete in Australia's competitive jobs market and become a sought-after employer in this prime location.
