South Africa EOR Services
Looking to hire new employees in South Africa? Native Teams’ employer of record services will ensure smooth hiring and onboarding process and handle everything from administrative tasks to HR management.
Why use an employer of record services in South Africa?
Generally, if you intend to recruit a new staff member from South Africa, the usual procedure involves establishing a legal entity in the country. This entails various steps, such as registering an office address, setting up a local bank account, and dealing with local payroll and tax regulations. Unfortunately, this process often takes several months.
However, by opting for an employer of record (EOR) service like Native Teams, you can avoid the need to create a legal entity. This choice enables your business to operate smoothly in South Africa, saving valuable time and resources while guaranteeing compliance with all employment laws.
How do EOR services in South Africa work?
Through our Employer of Record (EOR) service in South Africa, when you bring on board a new employee, you will maintain complete control over their work and daily tasks.
Simultaneously, Native Teams will assume the role of their legal employer, taking care of all aspects such as payroll, taxes, benefits, and administrative expenses. Your sole responsibility will be making payments to the leasing company to cover these expenses while we handle all the other necessary tasks.
