Grow your team worldwide without unnecessary costs or administrative burden with Remote.
Global hiring is the future of work. Organizations across every industry are discovering how remote hiring policies help attract and retain the best talent, whilst saving time and money on maintaining expensive offices.
Building international teams usually comes with high costs.
If you want to hire international employees, you need to establish a legal entity in every country where you plan to have workers. The cost of entering a new country is expensive — over $100,000 just for legal fees and incorporation, not to mention ongoing management costs. It’s also time-intensive, adding months of work to already-stretched finance, legal, and operations teams.
But there’s a faster and more cost-effective way that will help you achieve your global expansion goals without long-term commitments or costly compliance mistakes. When you partner with Remote, you get more than an employer of record service — you get our network of in-country legal and HR experts to support you at every step of the way. Whether you’re hiring your first international contractor or your 100th employee, we ensure your workforce is in full compliance with local laws. And with our flat and transparent pricing model, you can experiment in new markets before you fully commit.
Remote operates as the employer of record. It’s our responsibility to comply with local labour laws, tax regimes, and other regulations. We monitor regulatory changes in every country we serve, allowing you to focus on your business.
Also known as “substance requirements”, some companies may be liable to pay corporation taxes and meet stringent compliance rules — but understanding if your operations trigger the rules can be confusing.
Setting up your own entities is no longer necessary to hire internationally. Remote owns and operates legal entities — plus manages payroll and benefits — in every country we support. This means no expensive upfront investment, no legal fees, and no international corporation taxes to pay.
Our simple contract process means you can onboard new employees and expand into new regions within minutes, rather than weeks. Localized employment contracts, payroll services, and benefits options are available for every location we serve.
No need to manage multiple vendors and local partners. With Remote, you can manage all of your employees and contractors in one self-serve platform.
Expanding internationally usually requires an experienced team and a large budget. Remote reduces the costs, risks, and time involved in international hiring so you can hire in new countries.

Some global employment solutions outsource their responsibilities to intermediaries, resulting in delays, confusion, and higher costs. Remote operates its own entities in every location, allowing us greater accountability and flexibility across all the services we offer for one flat fee with no hidden charges.
Local legal entities distinguish EORs from PEOs. To hire employees in your target country without your own local entity, you need to partner with an EOR. This is true all over the world.
Intangible property – from invention rights to branding – can be confusing when working with employees across international borders. Remote IP Guard gives you maximum protection in every country we serve.
Remote’s local HR experts are here to help you navigate the complexities of international work. Whether you’re planning entries to new countries or need some advice on visas and immigration, we’re available 24/7.
