UK EOR Services
With Native Teams, you can easily hire employees in the United Kingdom without worrying about local laws, tax frameworks or managing international payroll.
Why use an employer of record services in the UK?
Normally, businesses are required to establish a legal entity in order to hire employees in the United Kingdom. That means registering an address, finding an office and getting a local bank account. All of this plus trying to navigate local payroll, tax, regulations and benefits can take months.
But when you use an employer of record (EOR) provider like Native Teams, your business can operate in the UK without a legal entity, saving you time and resources while also ensuring compliance with all employment laws and regulations.
How do EOR services in the UK work?
When hiring a new employee through our EOR, the employment will be jointly shared between you, the business owner, and us, Native Teams.
You will retain essential management control over the work performed by your employees and day-to-day activities, while we (Native Teams) will take on the responsibility of being the legal employer. Your primary responsibility will be to issue a payment to the leasing company to cover payroll, taxes, benefits, and administrative fees, while we’ll handle everything else.
