International companies with employees in the United States face a number of complex issues. American employees have to be paid a certain way, compensated a certain way, and expect a certain kind of benefits package. If you’re going to take care of your American employees, your company needs a local expert.
Among the things that you’ll need think about for your American employees are:
- worker’s compensation insurance
- medical insurance
- dental insurance
- unemployment insurance
- payroll services
- payroll tax filing services
- “supplemental” insurance (disability, life, etc.)
- retirement and pension accounts
All this, for just a few sales employees! Your ability to “just pay them as contractors” is also severely limited by labor and tax law in the US.
However, you have an alternative! A co-employer in the United States can handle all of the paperwork, take care of your American employees, meet with vendors, and send you just one bill. To find out what this can mean for your company, please contact us.
