Global PEO and payroll in New Zealand

Now is the time to expand your business overseas. With a well-crafted plan, you can enter into new markets and start generating revenue from them. If your competitors are doing it, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to do it as well. As the CFO or COO of your company, you are in a prime position to make this happen. Delegate the task to someone you trust who has the time to see it through.

One of the best business decisions you can make is to partner with a global PEO, or Professional Employer Organization. The employer employs a global PEO and enters into a joint-employment relationship with the client by leasing employees to the client across multiple jurisdictions, thereby allowing the global PEO to assume, share, and manage many global employment-related responsibilities and liabilities.

What is a Global PEO?

A professional employer organization (PEO) is a company that provides payroll, human resources, and benefits administration services to businesses. PEOs typically enter into joint employment relationships with an employer, which allows them to operate within single or multiple jurisdictions or countries. A crucial part of PEO services is compliance with the laws and regulations governing payroll, benefits administration, and tax reporting in the countries where they do business. This includes paying taxes on employee wages following local labor laws and taxation regulations. By outsourcing these functions to a PEO, businesses can focus on their core operations and leave the HR management to experts.

Advantages of a Global PEO

  • Reduced time spent on HR procedures, paperwork, and compliance

Outsourcing these operations to a PEO allows more time for strategic decision-making and business growth. Global PEOs are responsible for payroll, withholding and paying payroll taxes, managing compensation and benefits coverage, and providing HR compliance guidance.

  • Employment management cost control in New Zealand

Payroll, benefits, taxes, employee leaves, holidays, and social contributions are centrally managed by one trusted global PEO partner at competitive rates. By working with a PEO, businesses can take advantage of a co-employment relationship which can free up time and resources that can be better spent on strategic decision-making and business growth.

  • Expert advice on employment and tax legislation in New Zealand

The professionals at your Global PEO can provide expert advice on employment law and dispute resolution. Case studies show that a professional PEO partner can deliver the value of more than $2 million per year per client through efficiency gains and reduced non-compliance risk.

The global PEO becomes a co-employer of the organization’s employees, and PEO shares the employment responsibilities of the client organization. PEOs assume many administrative and HR compliance tasks that businesses would otherwise have to handle, giving business owners and management teams more time to focus on running their companies.

  • A Comprehensive Global Employment Service Portfolio

Global Professional Employment Organisations can provide valuable services, such as immigration support and expertise that businesses might not be able to access independently. Using a PEO can be a great way for businesses to improve efficiency, save time and money, and gain access to valuable resources and expertise.

Our experienced HR professionals are here to help with the many challenges of international expansion. From creating a successful employment strategy to providing guidance on proposed countries’ modes of entry, we can help you get started in your new venture.

The Remote Work Revolution & How PEOs Can Help You Adapt

As workforces continue to evolve, they demand that leaders like you shed the old work models of yesteryear and adapt to the new ones built in front of your eyes.  Global PEOs are here to help you navigate this changing employment paradigm, but only if you are willing to have an open mind about where your business is going.

Leadership teams across the globe are still struggling to figure out the best way to manage their internationally distributed workforce. Global PEOs are uniquely positioned to help companies like yours deal with these big changes, including the shift to remote work. Just a few years ago, the idea of a completely remote workforce was unheard of, but today it seems like a permanent reality for many.

How to Choose a Global PEO (Professional Employer Organization) in New Zealand?

As you consider a global PEO (Professional Employer Organization Partner) to manage your employees, imagine what would go wrong if the relationship didn’t work out. How would it affect your business? What if the PEO closed its doors or went bankrupt? Can you be sure your employees are covered in all eventualities? The best global PEOs can provide peace of mind and financial protection for employers and their staff, but you must do your homework before deciding on a global PEO partner.

Looking for a global PEO that can address your industry’s specific and global employment challenges is key to finding the best service provider. A global PEO with a strong track record and fiscal stability can help you address the needs of your industry while also providing compliance expertise and support.

Global PEOs help employers by taking on both the administrative burden of HR management and the financial responsibility of workers’ compensation. An added benefit is that they help you avoid having to make payroll tax deposits, which is especially helpful for small businesses that don’t have HR staff on hand to make these payments. They may even offer technology solutions that streamline payroll processing for employers.
