Global payroll refers to the tasks related to onboarding and managing payroll for international employees and contractors. It automates the process of paying international employees and maintaining compliance with country-specific laws, and it works as a single source of truth for HR to see data about the entire workforce. Modern global payroll providers like Paylocity offer company formation, business registration, in-country bank account set-up, statutory benefits, talent acquisition, and labor law compliance with their standard payroll services.
