Philippines EOR Services
Easily hire new employees in the Philippines with Native Teams’ Philippines employer of record services. We’ll take care of time-consuming tasks, such as complying with local laws, taxes and international payroll management.
Why use an employer of record services in the Philippines?
Typically, companies would have to go through a series of steps, such as setting up a legal entity, securing an address, locating an office, and opening a local bank account, before they could hire employees in the Philippines. Additionally, they had to deal with various aspects like managing payroll, taxes, regulations, and benefits, which often consumed several months to handle.
However, by utilising an employer of record (EOR) service like Native Teams, your business can start operating in the Philippines without the need for a legal entity. This approach saves significant time and resources while guaranteeing adherence to all the Philippines' employment laws and regulations.
How do EOR services in the Philippines work?
When you use our EOR services to hire a new employee, the employment arrangement will be a shared responsibility between you, the business owner, and Native Teams.
As the business owner, you will maintain full management control over your employees’ daily operations. Native Teams will assume the role of the legal employer, taking on the responsibility of being a legal employer. Your main obligation will be to make payments to the leasing company to cover payroll, taxes, benefits, and administrative fees, while we will handle all other aspects of the employment arrangement.
