What is the difference between employer of record and global payroll? 

An employer of record (EOR) legally employs workers on your behalf and is responsible for all aspects of employment. You can use an EOR to engage talent in countries where you don’t have an entity.

Global payroll helps you manage payroll and pay your own employees in countries where you have a business entity. When using global payroll, you remain responsible for all aspects of employment.

How can I get set up with global payroll?

Once you meet with your account manager and finalize the details, our onboarding team will work with you to create your company entity in the Oyster platform, facilitate the setup process, and offer information sessions for your team. After that, a country-specific payroll specialist will process your payroll data, prepare reports, and handle your payroll updates and queries. Our customer support team will also be available to answer any questions and offer guidance.

Can Oyster pay my employees’ salaries and taxes?

In all supported countries, Oyster can pay your employees on your behalf. However, making payments to tax authorities and/or benefit providers depends on the country’s local regulations. In cases where you have to pay the tax authority or benefit providers, we will provide you with the payment files and guidance.
