Employer of Record (EOR) Vietnam

Employer of Record (EOR): Hire & Pay Your Vietnam Team From Anywhere

Employer of Record (EOR) is a legal employer of the individuals who work for you, and as a result, far less oversight and effort is required. When a worker wants to work for your company and you use EOR services, that worker will sign the contract with the EOR provider and not with your firm. This means that you can get your Vietnam set up and working for you from the comfort of your own headquarters.

There is no minimum number of employees that you can hire through an EOR. On top of payroll processing, benefits administration, and employee contracts, EORs are responsible for all legal compliance paperwork, including registering with the labor department, paying personal income taxes, and handling immigration needs. This allows you to hire globally without worrying about local labor rules, tax filing, or any updates to compliance regulations.

As legal employers, EORs assume complete legal responsibility for your business’s contractors and employees within Vietnam. You will not be responsible for any compliance violations that occur. In addition, EORs provide comprehensive insurance, including general liability, workers’ compensation, social insurance, and other types of insurance required by the nation of residency of each employee. EORs also assumes all obligations in regard to the client company’s employment structure.

Professional Employer Organization (PEO) Vietnam

Professional Employer Organization (PEO): Outsource the entire process of hiring and paying your employees in Vietnam

When you choose a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) service, your company and the PEO are the co-employers of your employees, which means the people recruited are still the employees of your company. However, the PEO provider takes care of recruitment needs, labor department regulations, and payroll.

You are still legally accountable for your workers, and the PEO’s function is to assist you with your day-to-day HR tasks. The PEO shares responsibilities and liabilities with your organization. Because the PEO is another employer of the people who work for your company besides you, you must have your business registered in Vietnam.

In general, a PEO service can be more suitable for your needs if you intend to maintain a local presence and want to keep full legal accountability for your workforce without dealing with any of the headhunting, bureaucracy & payroll needs.
