What Are The Benefits Of Employer Of Record?

If you want to expand your company and manage Workers' Compensation costs, benefits, regulatory compliance, and working capital, an employer of record (EOR) will help you achieve your business goals. An EOR relieves you from occupying your valuable time and resources with human resource management and payroll functions, allowing you to focus on sustaining and advancing your business. EOR services provide a cost-benefit to companies with only a few employees on one work site as well as companies with thousands on projects. Focus on pushing your business forward by using EOR services to outsource time-consuming back-office work and mitigate arduous HR duties.

The Benefits Of The Wide Effect EOR

What An Employer Of Record Is. EOR is the administrative employer for an employee while this individual works for a different company. EOR manages the financial administrative, compliance, and regulatory side while the company handles the business side. An employer of record takes over HR tasks associated with managing internal employees, including hiring, retaining, and paying employees. With the Wide Effect EOR, you can choose from several health, dental, vision, and 401k packages or Wide Effect can take over the administration of your current plans. When you partner with an EOR, you retain hiring authority while having skilled experts manage the paperwork.

What An Employer Of Record Offers. With so many options in the industry, deciding on what kind of payroll provider you need can be challenging. To help make that decision consider the benefits of working with an EOR, which can:

  • Take over a portion of your HR functions
  • Be used for all or a portion of your workforce
  • Provide services for 1-5000 employees
  • Allow companies to expand their workforce to other states and countries without setting up a business entity
  • Handle payment based on payment terms (funded payroll contract)
  • Reduce non-revenue generating headcount
  • Process and fund payroll
  • Deposit and file taxes
  • Handle Workers' Compensation and unemployment claims
  • Serve as the legal employer

How An Employer Of Record Differs From A Payroll Company. Payroll companies offer similar solutions to employer of record, but payroll companies often focus on software solutions and other payroll-specific tasks. Some payroll companies will add other services such as benefits administration, however, they typically do not offer as much as an employer of record.

Business Expansion Using EOR. If your company is ready to start conducting business in another country, an EOR will simplify the process. With an EOR managing local payroll, immigration, and employment tasks, your business can expand swiftly without the need to register a local business entity. The EOR will appear as the legal employer for remote employees in their host country, thus allowing you to incorporate a foreign entity without running a compliance risk.
