Ireland EOR Services
With Native Teams’ assistance, you can hire employees in Ireland without worrying about local laws and regulations, tax systems, and international payroll.
Why use an employer of record services in Ireland?
Normally, if you intend to recruit a new employee from Ireland, it’s required that you establish a legal entity in the country beforehand. This process entails registering an office address, opening a local bank account, and navigating through local payroll and tax regulations. This can take up to several months.
By utilising the services of an employer of record (EOR) provider like Native Teams, your business can operate in Ireland without the need to create a legal entity. This way can save you valuable time and resources while ensuring your adherence to all employment laws.
How do EOR services in Ireland work?
Once you hire your new employees through our EOR service, the employment arrangement will be a shared responsibility between your company and Native Teams.
While you retain full management and control over your employees' day-to-day activities, Native Teams assumes the role of the legal employer. Your main obligation will involve making payments to the leasing company to cover payroll, taxes, benefits, and administrative fees, while we take care of the red tape-associated tasks.
Requirements for employment in Ireland
In Ireland, employers must follow several legal and tax requirements when hiring employees in the country. These include:
Employees must receive a written employment contract within the first month of their employment. The contract should include information about the working hours, salary, benefits and notice period.
Minimum wage laws
Employees must be paid at least the minimum wage. There are exceptions to this rule, like apprentices, workers under the age of 20, and workers employed by their relatives.
Employers must withhold a certain amount of their employee’s salary and remit it to the tax authorities.
Employers must keep records of certain data, including records of employees’ working hours and pay rates. These employee records showcase that you’re adhering to Ireland’s employment legislation.
Health and safety regulations
Employers have to ensure safe working conditions and reduce any chances of risks. Employers also need to make an assessment of their workplace to identify potential hazards.
Employers are required to provide non-EU and non-EEA citizens with the required documentation for acquiring a work permit. Employees can initiate the process of obtaining a work permit by submitting an application at the local immigration office.
Irish workers are entitled to report any perceived mistreatment by their employers to the government. However, prior to taking this step, employees are required to inform their employer about their intention to contact the WRC (Workplace Relations Commission).
Please be aware that the list provided above is not exhaustive, and the mentioned requirements can differ based on factors such as the type of job, the employer, and individual circumstances.
