Our tailored employer of record (EOR) services supports your expansion into Europe through the management of payroll, HR, work visas and employee benefits. 

Many businesses are keen to tap into the European market. From the UK to Germany, France to Spain, Europe is home to a wide range of countries who have strong individual economies plus are supported by the strong economic structure and sound business network of Europe as a whole. 

For countries in the EU, the European Single Market allows for the free movement of goods, opening up cross-border business to those companies who already reside in EU countries. Meanwhile, with free movement of labour for EU members, EU companies can benefit from a fluid, often multi-lingual workforce.

However, for countries not in the EU, now including the UK after Brexit, expansion into Europe is not as straightforward.

Non-EU businesses who wish to set up shop in Europe will need to set up a legal entity, a task that can be time-consuming and costly. Meanwhile, the European Commission sets out the labour law which defines the rights and obligations for workers and employers. The EU labour law covers 2 main areas:

  • Working conditions - working hours, part-time & fixed-term work, posting of workers,
  • Informing & consulting workers about collective redundancies, transfers of companies, etc.

Europe's free movement policy does not extend to non-EU employees who wish to work in Europe, therefore visas will be required in order to live and work within the EU, adding another logistical challenge to your European expansion.

Whether you are based in or out of the EU, our European EOR services can help you to navigate EU labour laws and reap the benefits of Europe's rich talent pool and strong economy.

What is an Employer of Record?

Sometimes known as a PEO, or a portage salarial in France, an employer of record is classed as the legal employer of your employee or workforce, taking the legal responsibility of employee management and HR from your shoulders while you remain responsible for the day-to-day management of your employee. Put simply, an employer of record in Europe will:

  • Facilitate employment contracts
  • Comply with European employment laws as set out by the European Commission
  • Pay taxes 
  • Run payroll 
  • Organise employee benefits

An EOR ensures that you can expand into Europe without a legal entity and with full assurance that you comply with Europe wide and country specific employment legislation.

Why do I need an Employer of Record in Europe?

Expanding into any country can be costly and time consuming thanks to setting up a legal entity, running payroll and navigating foreign employment laws. However, expanding into Europe can be extra challenging. Not only do you have country-specific employment laws to navigate but, you will also be required to abide by Europe wide employment laws that are set out by the European Commission. 

At Leap29, our employer of record services takes this burden from your shoulders. With extensive experience in leading businesses through international expansion as well as an expert team dedicated to understanding and complying with the latest European regulations, an employer of record can save you time, money and resources when it comes to expanding your business. Therefore, you can reap the benefits of Europe's strong collective economy all the while knowing your business is operating compliantly.
