Employer of Record (EOR) in Ireland

What Is a Global Employer of Record?

A Global Employer of Record is a legal entity that eliminates employment liability and compliance risks. It allows you to remain the actual employer and concentrate on your business objectives. Our model uses a flexible price model with terms based on the number of employees, with no limits to project duration or employee number.

The Global Employer of Record has revolutionized employers hiring workers in other countries. With this innovative new talent engagement model, employers can access a single point of contact for all their foreign employment needs, making it easier to comply with local labour laws and streamline their HR processes in Ireland.

Employers often find themselves in a difficult position when expanding globally. To comply with local laws, they often need to establish a legal entity in the country where they are expanding. This process can be costly and time-consuming, making many businesses hesitate before taking on the challenge. Fortunately, there is a Global Employer of Record solution available that can help simplify the process.

To help your organization legally onboard and payroll a workforce in Ireland, Acumen International offers a global employment solution that circumvents the legalities of direct hiring.  Our global employer of record services provides a range of additional services like medical insurance, cars, laptops, and technology, so you can easily manage your personnel across multiple countries.

When You Should Use a Global Employer of Record

1. Using Global EORs to Explore and Evaluate International Markets

Exploring a new market can be lengthy and expensive, but some options can help you get a quick read on the potential demand for your products and services.

A Global Employer of Record is a great way to test the readiness of an international market for your products or services. Hiring workers via Global EOR in target countries, including Ireland, allow you to get a feel for the market without committing time and resources to set up a local entity. This is a great way to gauge interest and potential demand before making a major investment.

Companies often use EORs for temporary workers who may need to work in multiple locations during their contract period. For example, suppose you’re an IT company looking for temporary help in another office. In that case, you might hire an employee through an EOR to fill that spot without worrying about payroll, benefits, or local tax and compliance issues.

2. Leveraging Short-term Employee Engagements

Although Ireland offers companies several advantages when expanding their business, many business owners find setting up a company in Ireland time-consuming and difficult. Alternative solutions, such as working with a Global Employer of Record (EOR) in Ireland, offer a more streamlined approach that eliminates some of the hassles of establishing a legal entity. The EOR will take on all tax and regulatory obligations on behalf of your company, ensuring that operations run smoothly without any unnecessary delays. By engaging a global  EOR, you can also avoid additional expenses associated with running a foreign subsidiary, such as consultancy fees, office space, and equipment rentals.

Partnering with an Employer of Record, you will retain full control over your employees and business operations while benefitting from substantial cost savings and avoiding non-compliance risk. 

3. An EOR (Employer of Record) Lets You Onboard the Best Talent Faster in Ireland

As the global economy continues to strengthen, many companies are searching for ways to decrease costs and increase efficiency. One solution is to outsource employment overseas, which can be risky and complex. Employers of Record (EORs), on the other hand, allow you to hire talent from any location without needing an entity. This makes it a clean and compliant option with global regulations.

What Services Can a Global Employer of Record Provide?

1. Onboarding of Local and Ex-pat Employees in Ireland

With the growing need to hire talent in a rapidly emerging, competitive, and international market, it is important to partner with a trusted Global Employer of Record that can provide international employment expertise and labor law compliance for your company expanding to Ireland. The Acumen International Global Employer of Record is an efficient, effective, and reliable EOR service portfolio to manage the employment process.

A Global Employer of Record with a wealth of international and local expertise and necessary processes can be a great resource to help orchestrate the employment process while complying with all applicable regulations in Ireland.

Global Employer of Record companies can help businesses bridge the gap when establishing a legal foreign entity.

The contracts are tailored to meet best the needs of both employees and your organization as the factual employer. Employment Contracts are designed to reflect the specific local employment regulations at the time of contract execution in Ireland.

Employment Contracts can be drafted for temporary or permanent assignments or full-time or part-time work. Global EORs help ensure that all Ireland employees have access to standardized terms and conditions appropriate for their employment status and location.

The Global Employer of Record solutions provider will provide administrative support for any legal matters that arise from your collaboration.

3. A Global EOR Provides Payroll Administration Services in Ireland

An EOR is a company that helps companies to manage the administration of employee pay in other countries. When you employ someone in another country through an EOR, you provide the funds, and the EOR handles the distribution of salary, social security contributions, and retirement accounts.

An EOR, or Employer of Record, can help you avoid costly fines and headaches regarding international payroll. By working with an EOR, you can safely and securely hire workers from foreign countries without worrying about each country’s complex tax laws and employment regulations. Find the best candidate for the job, and let your Global EOR take care of the rest!

Spotlight on Ireland

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic, western Europe. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel. Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. Ireland is a small, modern, trade-dependent economy. The greatest risks to the economy are the UK’s departure from the European Union (“Brexit”) in March 2019, possible changes to international taxation policies that could affect Ireland’s revenues, and global trade pressures.

  • Capital: Dublin
  • Official language: English (official, the language generally used), Irish (Gaelic or Gaeilge) (official, spoken by approximately 40% of the population; mainly spoken in areas along Ireland’s western coast known as Gaeltachta, which are officially recognized regions where Irish is the predominant language). In general, employment contracts are written in English.
  • Population: 5.224.884 (July 2021).
  • Labor force: 2.289 million (2020).
  • Local currency: Euro (EUR). Ireland was among the initial group of 12 EU nations that began circulating the euro on 1 January 2002.
  • Minimum statutory salary: The minimum wage increased to €10.20 per hour from January 1st, 2021. The national minimum wage applies to full-time, part-time, temporary, and casual employees. Employees must be given pay slips showing their wages and any deductions made. Sectoral employment orders (SEOs) and registered employment agreements (REAs) set out minimum wages in certain sectors that differ to the national minimum wage. The Payment of Wages Act 1991 gives all employees a right to a pay slip showing the gross wage and details of all deductions made by their employer.
  • Salary Currency: There is no requirement under the legislation regarding the currency in which wages must be paid. However, it is generally assumed that wages will be paid in the jurisdiction’s currency, in this case, Euro.
  • Most developing industries: Agriculture remains a key sector as the government seeks to strengthen its role in the economy by modernizing it and transforming the food processing industries (beef, dairy, potatoes, barley, wheat, pig, sheep, and cereals). Ireland’s recent industrial development was achieved through a deliberate policy of promoting advanced export-oriented enterprises and partly through attractive offers for investors. Textiles, chemicals, and electronics have performed particularly well. Banking and finance have grown to such an extent that Dublin is now an important international financial center, while tourism has become an important source of foreign exchange earnings.
  • Trading partners: The top export partners are the United States, Belgium, Germany, the UK, China, Netherlands, with such commodities as medical cultures/vaccines, nitrogen compounds, packaged medicines, integrated circuits, and scented mixtures. The key countries for import are the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, the Netherlands, and France. Import commodities include aircraft, computers, packaged medicines, refined petroleum, medical cultures, and vaccines.
