FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

What is a global payroll solution?

What does a global payroll provider do?

A global payroll provider runs all payroll operations for organizations with international employees.

Global payroll outsourcing is the process of working with a payroll partner to compliantly pay international employees.

The global payroll outsourcing partner delivers accurate and on-time payments to your employees, manages and reports on payroll taxes, protects sensitive payroll data, and ensures compliance with market-specific payroll regulations.

How do you run payroll internationally?

What are the types of global payroll services?

  • Decentralized global payroll: Work with a local payroll vendor in each market to handle your payroll administration. However, this method offers limited visibility into the payroll processes within each country and may increase compliance and security risks.
  • Centralized global payroll: Work with one global payroll partner that manages in-country payroll vendors on your behalf. All payroll streams are standardized and consolidated into one platform to reduce risk and improve visibility and efficiency.
