Why Utilize International PEO?

Time is of the Essence

Seize the opportunity to expand overseas without waiting for months to set up a subsidiary.  International PEO cuts the time it takes to enter a foreign market by 90 percent.

In-Country Business

Understand whether you even need to establish an entity in the country.  Each situation is unique and sometimes a permanent establishment is not the best solution.

“Contractor” or Employee?

Just because you call them a “contractor” doesn’t mean they are.  The penalties for getting it wrong range from very expensive to not allowing you to do business in that country any longer, plus employees are more loyal.

Costs

Establishing an entity can be expensive.  Aside from the setup and ongoing costs of permanent establishment, the opportunity costs are real if you can’t enter the market fast enough or hire the right person when they become available.
