Global Employer of Record in South Africa

Global employment services

Businesses in the process of expanding globally often face challenges when it comes to compliantly onboarding employees in foreign countries. In most cases, legal compliance requires the establishment of a legal in-country business entity, a complex, costly and time-consuming process that many employers are not ready to undertake.

To help your organization legally onboard and payroll a workforce in South Africa, Acumen International offers a global employment solution via our Global Employer of Record / EOR designed to help you circumvent the legalities of direct hiring, eliminating the need for you to establish a legal entity in South Africa in order to conduct business there.

Spotlight on South Africa:

South  Africa  is the southern tip of the continent of Africa. It is bounded to the south by 2,798 kilometres  of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans; to the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe; and to the east and northeast by Mozambique and Eswatini (former Swaziland); and it surrounds the enclaved country of Lesotho.

  • Capital: South Africa has three capitals: executive Pretoria, judicial Bloemfontein and legislative Cape Town.
  • Population: 56,463,617.
  • Local currency: South African rand (ZAR).
  • Most developing industries: South Africa is rich in mineral resources. The country is the world’s largest producer and exporter of gold, platinum, chrome and manganese, the second largest palladium producer and the fourth largest producer of diamonds. Coal plays a vital role as an energy source and contributes significantly to the economy, both through the generation of export revenue and employment. Africa has diverse manufacturing industries and is a world leader in several specialized sectors, including railway rolling stock, synthetic fuels, mining equipment and machinery.
