What are PEOs and EORs, and how do they Differ?

While researching PEOs, you will likely see they discussed alongside or with EORs. The two types of services offer many of the same functions but operate differently in the way they relate to the client.  

A PEO is a third party that offers HR services to employees of other companies. In a PEO agreement, the contract is made between the two companies.  

An EOR officially hires and takes charge of all elements of EOR for employees of other companies on their behalf. An employment contract is made between the employee and the EOR in this case. 

To read about these two services in further detail, you can read our article here

No, it is necessary to use a local entity abroad to comply with each country labor law.

Foreign companies can either set up a local entity in each country or use the services a local PEO (Professional Employment Organization) to hire the staff on-site directly.

The employer of record is the legal entity liable for the staff employed in a specific country. In practice, a foreign company can either open a subsidiary to become the employer of record of its abroad employees or use a PEO to act as the employer of record.

Liabilities may vary from country to country and include all the staff management responsibilities: labor contract issues, payroll management, and tax compliance, social security management, expenses claim declaration, hiring and termination

In general, 1-month is necessary to have an employee based out abroad using an existing PEO as the employe of record. When incorporating a new subsidiary to be the employer of record, the delay varies from 4-12 months.
