International markets continue to grow in importance for British companies, and with this growth comes an expansion of compliance requirements. Whether you are sending expatriates into a country or taking on a small local payroll as part of an acquisition or branch opening, your business will need to ensure it meets all of its obligations.
Outsourcing the payroll function may seem the best solution, but the company remains legally liable for any mistakes the outsource partner may make. It is therefore important that the end client is aware of what the major tasks are the outsourcer performs on their behalf, the key deadlines that they need to sign off, and how to interpret key reports and payslip information.
