Choosing the Right Global Payroll Strategy for Your Business

The fact of the matter is that there’s no one-size-fits all approach to international payroll. It’s a process that is as dynamic as your business – and it requires constant reevaluation and attention to detail. That’s why it’s important to understand how to tailor your global payroll strategy to your company’s needs. With the right resources, you can make international payroll work for your business.

Setting up Global Payroll As you set up payroll in a new market, one of the first questions you need to ask is this: what are the payroll needs that are specific to your business? Are you moving an employee overseas? Are you hiring a group of new workers in your target market? Each of these scenarios will impact your payroll approach.

In-House or Out-SourceThe next question you must ask yourself is whether you should keep operations in-house or outsource them. Some companies prefer to keep their payroll strategy in-house in order to minimise the amount of people with access to data or because they are frequently dealing with last minute changes. Other companies, the majority, find that international payroll providers are the best option, as they are more likely to have in-depth knowledge of local laws and compliance requirements.

Ensuring ComplianceAfter you’ve determined the best international payroll for your business, whether it be in-house or out-sourced to one of the many global payroll services, you’ll still have to pay strict attention to payments, deadlines and compliance. International payroll companies can take much of the work off your hands, but they might not be able to tell you all of your responsibilities as an employer. Specialists and local experts can help you discern exactly which actions you need to take. Without proper compliance, global payroll will not run smoothly, leading to unhappy employees and an unsuccessful business.

Building a successful global business requires successful global payroll. Galvin International can provide guidance through each step of the process, connecting you with the specialists who can seamlessly integrate your international payroll strategy. We’ll help you ask all the right questions – and then we’ll answer them, too.
