Employer of Record (EOR) in Brazil

What Is an Employer of Record?

An Employer of Record is a third-party expert global employment contracted by a client company to provide fully compliant international employment services. This means that the Employer of Record assumes all the core responsibilities of an employer as specified under the applicable laws in a specific country or a set of operations. An Employer of Record is generally responsible for payroll and benefits administration, ensuring that all necessary tax withholding or deductions are made, and meeting other compliance obligations of employers in a particular country of operations. Employer of Record solution is usually more cost-effective and compliant than setting up a local legal entity or subsidiary overseas.

What Services Does an Employer of Record (EOR) Provide?

An Employer of Record Can Handle Tax Reporting in Brazil

The Employer of Record is a strategic alternative to setting up local entities and paying local employment taxes and charges (payroll tax, social security contributions) in multiple countries worldwide. The onboarding of your international employees via EOR engagement takes simple steps; in most cases, it can be achieved within a couple of days, with no local entity setup costs and compliance risks.

Avoid the Risk of Employee Misclassification with an Employer of Record in Brazil

Some companies may be tempted to avoid employing full-time employees and instead engage them as independent contractors. This can be risky; however, as if the tax or employment regulators or courts deem the true nature of the professional’s engagement to be employment, a company could have severe penalties and liabilities. For example, if an employee is considered an employee, an employer will have to back pay those workers’ social security and other taxes. The Employer of Record engagement helps reduce the risk of misclassification and avoid fines and penalties.

Employer of Record solutions can help businesses comply with labor law regulations that classify workers as independent contractors rather than employees. This can be a cost-effective and 100% compliant solution in industries where full-time would otherwise illegally be classified as contractors.
