What is Global PEO&Payroll Solution

Acumen International is a Professional Employer Organization (PEO), also known as Global PEO that offers global PEO and payroll solutions to hire talent internationally. By partnering with our Professional Employer Organization, our clients can engage and payroll candidates in 190 countries. We offer international PEO and payroll service for both local citizens and expatriates. We serve clients from such industires as IT and Telecommunications, FMCG, Oil and Gas, Construction, Agriculture, Automotive, Medicine & Healthcare, etc.

With our global PEO and payroll solution, you can rest assured that your foreign employees are employed and compensated in compliance with local labor laws. Our global team will arrange monthly payroll and pay mandatory taxes and contributions for any number of employees, in as many countries as you require.

Our Global Professional Employer Organization can help you operate in foreign markets and hire talent there without your own company formation, and without facing compliance risks. Leverage our global infrastructure to reap the benefits of our 100% compliant global PEO and payroll solution.

NOTE: We are not a payroll service provider and we do not provide payroll as a standalone solution. Our Global Professional Employer Organization would act as a legal employer on your behalf and arrange your employees' legal onboarding and offboarding in addition to monthly payroll. Unlike a payroll service, our global PEO solution enables you to outsource your global workforce employment to a thrid-party provider like Acumen International while having no legal ties to your global employees. That means you don't bear any risks related with global employment and HR compliance. Another benefit is that you don't have to incorporate in a foreign country where you want to employ your candidates. Our Global PEO company will do this for you.

PEO Models and Payroll Key Differences

Domestic PEO solutions initially appeared in the US, facilitating business expansion within a single country.  A global PEO enables businesses to hire and manage employees internationally, without setting up an international entity, to get up and running overseas quickly. 

Some companies provide international payroll management but do not provide employment services like those provided by a PEO. When choosing the best model for your company, it is essential to understand who will be responsible for employee onboarding and employment risks.

Global payroll management is a critical function for any business, large or small. This can be a complex and time-consuming task, but it is crucial to keep your employees paid on time to maintain the efficiency of your international venture. 

Global Payroll Management & Compliance Considerations

Managing employees in different countries can be a complex and challenging task. Employees may need to be registered and taxed differently in each country, and there may be other laws that need to be followed. This can make it very hard to keep track of everything and ensure everything is done correctly.

When it comes to payroll, there are many different regulations that you must follow to avoid penalties or litigation. Each country has its laws and regulations, but some standards apply internationally. You must know and adhere to tax deadlines, withholding and reporting laws, and regulations requiring employee tax slip signatures. If you fail to adhere to these payroll compliance rules, you could face severe penalties that could negatively impact your business.

Global payroll management is a complex process that requires careful consideration of various factors. Payroll specialists must consider local regulations and taxation requirements, which can be time-consuming and difficult to navigate. However, by addressing some key challenges and partnering with a Global PEO, organizations can ensure compliant, accurate, and timely payments.
