Global Employee Leasing Via An International PEO


"Would we need to set up a local legal entity to hire locally if we used an international professional employer organization (PEO)?"

This question was asked at a recent webinar, now available on-demand:

"Winning Globally – Determining When to Take Your Company International"

Please add your thoughts about it below. Thanks!

You don't need to setup a local entity for hiring - the International PEO (also called a Global Employer Organization or GEO) handles the local employment. The GEO becomes the Employer of Record and handles all aspects of employment and payroll compliance.

You may still need or want to setup a local entity for other reasons. For example because of corporate tax considerations
