Tips for choosing an employer of record service partner

It is extremely important to rely on a professional and trustworthy company while choosing an EOR partner for expanding your business. The company will be responsible for guiding you with all the facts and proper information related to market expansion in that country. Also, the company will be responsible for providing you with a skilled workforce as well as it will help you to adhere to all the government laws and regulations. In short, a simple mistake in choosing a reliable company for global market expansion can cost you a lot. You can not only end up losing a lot of money, but your business can also sink with this mistake. Here are some tips for choosing a reliable EOR partner while expanding your business overseas.

Things to consider while choosing a reliable EOR partner

  • Knowledge
    It is the most important point that you need to keep in mind. Your EOR partner should have enough knowledge of the country in which you are thinking about expanding your business. A non-professional EOR partner may charge you extra and can also take extra time to do its research while keeping you at risk. It is always better to go for an EOR partner that knows the market and all the legal requirements properly so that it can guide you in all the steps needed without any extra charges.
  • Transparent pricing
    You have to ensure that your EOR partner is transparent about the prices and not hiding anything from you. Some companies may include hidden fees and taxes later, which can affect your budget and different sectors of your business. Your EOR partner should not have any dilemma in presenting every element of their pricing upfront.
  • Communication
    Communication is also the key to business relationships. Your EOR partner should listen to your preferences and all your requirements carefully and act accordingly. You should have all the updates about the procedure and your partner should be available whenever you need to ask any questions or clear any confusion. Your EOR partner should not only be there for you to communicate different matters but also should offer timely support to your workforce in their local languages and time zones. Your opinion should matter in different steps of the process and your EOR partner should only make decisions based on assumptions with proper communication with you.
  • A proven track record of success
    Ask for the track record of success from the company. Companies that offer reliable and efficient global EOR services will not have any issues sharing their success records with you. You can go through the testimonials on unbiased sites and can also go through reviews of previous customers to make sure that the company is able to keep its word.
  • Company operations in the country you need to expand
    While choosing EOR services, make sure that the service providing company follows the right path in every step of operation in the country where you are willing to expand your business. You will not want to hire an additional service provider to reach your goals and that’s why it is important to go for a company that has a broad reach.
  • Accurate Employer Burden Calculations and Quotes
    The labor requirements vary from market to market, especially in terms of employer burden, social contributions and value-added tax requirements. Your EOR partner should be responsible for providing you with all the accurate quotes, as if there are any mistakes in these quotes, your company can be at legal and financial risk. It is extremely important to go for a company that has a proven track record of accurate employer burden calculations.
  • Other workforce-related solutions
    While expanding a business globally, there are different expansion and workforce-related requirements that need to be met. You may need to pay and manage your international contracts or establish your foreign entity. In all those cases, assigning different companies for different roles can be hazardous. It is always advised to go for a partner offering multi-dimensional HR services your distributed workforce may need.
  • The market position of the EOR company 
    Another important point that is needed to be considered is the market position of the company on which you are willing to rely. Check whether the company is reliable enough or not. You can understand it by going through the list of clients of the company. If a company is reputed enough, there would be some renowned clients. Also, search about that company on different platforms and use your network to understand how the EOR company is positioned in the market and what is the brand image of the company.
