How EOR Can Help You Expand Your Business

How EOR Can Help You Expand Your Business

Expansion is a great way to stay competitive. Establishing a company expansion in another country opens many business opportunities including access to a new market, a new talent pool to select from, and lower costs for project development. There are country-specific laws that a business needs to know of and comply with when expanding to that area and large amounts of time and resources need to be put into setting up a foreign entity. The duties of business owners in a foreign country are to follow local labor laws, properly register an entity, and take responsibility for any tax or documentation issues. Hiring an Employer of Record (EOR) limits all of these problems and allows for a more streamlined expansion. If you want to expand your company an EOR will help you achieve your business goals.

The Benefits Of EOR During Expansion

Avoid Entry Barriers. Registering an entity abroad can be a long and stressful process as some countries need you to wait for the embassy's approval before business activities commence. Since an EOR is a registered company, employers can start searching for and hiring qualified workers without needing to wait.

Comply With Local Law. Local trade and labor laws vary from country to country and your American workers may not know all of the laws in the country you are expanding to. For example, maternity leave, termination causes, overtime laws, and more are specific to the country the employee works in and may be different from American laws. To avoid potential lawsuits by unknowingly breaking these laws, an EOR knows the labor legislation in the country your business is expanding to and makes sure the company is compliant with local law.

Shift Responsibility. Since the EOR is registered on the official documentation and is the one paying taxes, they are taking on the responsibility of any incidents. If there is an accidental miscalculation on tax forms or if for any reason local labor laws have not been complied with, these issues are legally the responsibility of the EOR and not of your company.

Reduce Expansion Costs. Setting up an office abroad has many expenses: the cost of establishing a subsidiary, building your team abroad, hiring legal assistants, and more. These costs add up quickly, but partnering with an EOR is like hiring an HR department, financial team, and legal consultants all in one.

Save Resources And Time. Management tasks such as payroll, administering benefits, and keeping track of paperwork take time away from primary tasks. Management’s time is better used finding ways to improve the product, build strategies, and create meaningful relationships with clients. By hiring an EOR, the office work gets completed in a timely and efficient manner while the management can focus on what matters most: innovation, sustainability, and scalability.
