Global Employer of Record (EOR) in Israel
What Is a Global Employer of Record?
The global Employer of Record (EOR) service is a new way for companies to hire workers in other countries. Companies can reduce administrative costs and improve compliance with local labor laws using the GEO (Global Employer of Record).
Previously, finding workers from other countries was time-consuming and required extensive research into local laws and regulations. With the GEO, employers can employ their pre-selected qualified workers worldwide in just minutes without taking on the cost and risk of establishing a local entity. The global EOR also provides valuable HR support and compliance assistance, making it easier for businesses to thrive in a competitive global marketplace. The Global EOR offers employers access to a single point of contact for all their foreign employment needs, from complying with local labour laws to managing payroll and benefits.

Why You Should Look for a Global EOR to Support Your Business Expansion to Israel
1. Hiring a Candidate for a New Location
Today, businesses are looking for ways to save money and increase efficiency. One solution is the Global EOR model, which allows companies to hire the best talent regardless of location. By outsourcing work to a Global Employer of Record (EOR), a business avoids establishing an entity and complies with global regulations. This makes it an ideal solution for companies that need to hire workers in multiple locations but do not have the internal resources or infrastructure to support them.
2. Test the New Market with a Global EOR without Making Long-term Investments in Israel
Stepping into a new market can be risky, both financially and reputationally. A Global Employer of Record (EOR) in Israel will take on the risk for you, making expanding your business into new markets easy and affordable.
A Global Employer of Record (EOR) allows you to test new markets before incorporating. It can also protect you from liability or unnecessary tax and labour non-compliance risk and other issues arising because you operate in a different state or country.
If you plan to expand your business into another state, you can use an EOR to test the waters first. Think of an EOR as a low-risk “try before buy”, allowing you to see if the new location is a good fit before incorporating. The process doesn’t require additional investment or paperwork on your part. You can also use an EOR to protect yourself from liability issues while testing out a new location or service offering.
3. A Global Employer of Record Is a Better Alternative for Entity Set Up in Israel
The Global Employer of Record offers a simple, low-cost solution for companies expanding their operations in a foreign country.
Companies can work with a local partner in their chosen country and utilize the services of an Employer of Record (EOR). This provides an alternative to setting up an entity or subsidiary, allowing companies to sidestep the administrative and financial burdens of establishing a legal entity.
The Global EOR will be responsible for all tax obligations and regulatory compliance requirements on behalf of your company. The Global EOR engagement also allows you to avoid additional costs for hiring local staff and other expenses such as office space and equipment rentals.
Partnering with a Global Employer of Record, you will retain full control over your local and international employees and business operations while benefitting from substantial cost savings and avoiding non-compliance risk.
4. Avoid Independent Contractor Non-compliance and Misclassification Risk
Employment and tax laws vary from country to country. You must comply with all local labor laws if you hire a worker directly. The penalties for non-compliance are steep and can include fines, imprisonment, and loss of your business license. In some countries, employers must pay payroll taxes for all employees, regardless of whether they work for the company in-house or remotely.
Labour and tax authorities in Israel can impose penalties for misclassifying employees as independent contractors, including fines and back taxes. You could risk violating employment and tax laws if you plan to grow your business by hiring international contractors. A global EOR can enhance compliance by hiring contractors on your behalf and following all local in-country labor requirements.

Employment in Israel
Israeli law generally does not require an employment contract to be in writing. However, each employer is required to provide all new employees (and any existing employee upon the employee’s request) with a written notification form regarding certain employment terms and to update all such employees, in writing, regarding any changes in the employment terms, everything as mentioned in the Notice to Employee Laws and relevant regulations.
An employer must give his foreign employee a signed employment contract in a language that he understands, setting out the details of his employment. The contract must also include contact information concerning the filing of complaints with the Ombudsman of Foreign Worker Labour Rights in the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Labour.
