Compliance for global employee hire

Ensure that your international hiring, HR and payroll complies with local laws and regulations.

Market-leading compliance expertise

Many companies struggle to stay on top of all the labor law and tax requirements when hiring employees internationally.  For example, employment contracts must be compliant with local laws in every country of hire. And every employee must be onboarded with the correct payment details and social contributions (such as pensions and public health insurance).

Horizons handles all your employment compliance, leaving you to focus on core business.

In-house legal team

Our robust legal team works daily to maintain local and international compliance.

World-class finance team

Our finance team ensures local financial compliance, wherever you are hiring in the world.

Powerful HR platform

Horizons secure, easy-to-use HR platform keeps data safe in compliance with GDPR.

Safeguard your company with the appropriate contracts

Labor contracts need to be localized to each location. This protects your employees, and protects your business from liability:

Onboard employees the right way

As well as labor contracts, there are a range of things that must be in place when hiring and paying internationally, including:

Tax documentation

for all employees and contractors.

Compliant processes

for withholding and remitting income and payroll taxes.

Audit-ready records

to easily pass local or international audits.

Payroll documentation
