The Top 5 Reasons to Convert Afghanistan-based
FREELANCERS into FULL-TIME EMPLOYEES

We’ve recently noticed an uptick in IT companies’ desire to hire the brightest minds and eliminate the risks of independent contractor misclassification in Afghanistan and all over the world. But with more and more companies competing for these contractors, the more they are shying away from converting their existing freelancers & independent contractors into full-time employees.

You don’t have to be one of those companies

Here’s Out a Litigation You Definitely Would Want to Avoid…
One American company was working on a full-time basis with a Slovakian IT freelancer for approximately three years. The American HR director decided to contact Acumen International to employ this freelancer to eliminate the risk of employee / independent IT contractor misclassification in the future.

The US finance department did not approve of our offer to employ the Slovakian freelancer as it seemed higher than what they were currently paying the freelancer. An employee misclassification case did not seem imminent, so they decided not to act.

Half a year later the same company contacted us to employ the Slovakian freelancer. Our offer got approved but the freelancer refused to sign our employment agreement. In this half year, the relationship between the freelancer and the US company went sour. The freelancer decided to go to the labor authorities instead. We never heard the ultimate verdict but from communication with the HR director we understood that they risked paying the due social security taxes, vacation, severance payment and additional fines. The total claimed amount was approximately 70.000 EUR.

Together with 100% compliance, official PEO employment of a foreign person in Afghanistan ensures:

  • NO business risks: secured customer base and intellectual property
  • On-site customer support and in-depth knowledge of local business culture
  • Local managers speak your language
  • Your time and money saved
  • Less time spent on recruitment, evaluation, onboarding of globally distributed teams of professionals, or a learning curve

To make it easy for you to choose between the two options, we have designed our ‘Employee vs Independent Contractor’ Checklist

Hidden benefits of hiring and payrolling foreign employees vs independent contractors in Afghanistan:

  • Engaging and paying foreign talent via a global PEO solution is about 30% cheaper than engaging in-house
  • Saves around 50% costs compared to working and paying through your own entity
  • With the help of employment, employee loyalty grows by 47%, which is why you can retain the top minds long-term
  • Official foreign employment eliminates 95% of legal, financial, and business risks. Also, using this service you can get the flexibility and take up more projects of different duration. You can start a bare-bones operation in Afghanistan with just one or a couple of employees and easily add any headcount as you move along.
