Expat Orbit devised and implemented a suitable employer of records (EOR) structure to assist the client company in urgently deploying its engineers and experts in Nigeria, even though the company had no local legal entity in Nigeria
Expat Orbit offered a widened EOR solution at home and host location, encompassing not just documentation, immigration, host employment, and payroll but also covered support in areas such as counselling, cultural adjustment, housing, taxation, and insurance cover for the expatriate employees
The client had been awarded a two-year service contract at a power project overseas, which mandated immediate deployment of specialist and experienced personnel from India. Being a new territory, the client had no local entity in the host country and as part of overall arrangement, it was essential to remunerate the expats locally, manage applicable immigration, payroll, and taxation compliances in the host and home country
As an eminent feature of most secondments, this project was pressed on budgets, thus any structuring around overseas secondment, along with being compliant had to be cost effective
Being new geography, logistical and empathetic support for expats was also of paramount importance. It was imperative to handhold expats in identifying safe accommodation, commuting support, and combating cultural adjustment issues
We carved out an Employer Of Record secondment model which along with being compliant ensured accurate execution of compliances at the home and host location and most importantly eliminated the hassles and costs associated with incorporating a host entity
Expat Orbit helped us deploy Indian professionals overseas leveraging the EOR model. Despite the urgent nature of the project, the team managed all documentation, approvals, licenses, visas, employment and monthly payroll thereby ensuring full compliance with the local authorities. Our expats were also supported with accommodation counselling and local insurance. Our experience with Expat Orbit has been seamless and saved us a lot of time. This is the best solution available for companies looking to scale operations globally.
At Expat Orbit, we treat our client's work as our own, and ensure highest standards of quality and pro-activeness.
Since this was a highly time sensitive project, our team ensured that initial onboarding and associated activities were completed in less than two weeks. This included issuance of visas in India, on arrival immigration registration, onboarding, setting up home and host payroll, opening local bank accounts along with support in identifying suitable accommodation and insurance plan for the expat employees.
