Paying Overseas Staff:
Exchange Rates and Fees
It is now common to have staff on an international payroll, from a single remote worker to several employees working overseas from an international office. But managing an international payroll can be tricky when you start looking into the different factors to consider, including:
- Compliance – you need to make sure you are complying with all local legislation in the employee’s country and the country of business. For this, we recommend speaking with a specialist international Tax consultant to ensure all of your payments comply with the local laws and payment schedules.
- Managing exchange rate fluctuations – exchange rates change all the time, so you need to make sure your payments reflect the current rates so your overseas employees are paid the correct amount (and you don’t end up paying more than you should!)
- Managing transaction fees – different platforms and countries can incur different transaction fees, so you need to make sure these are accounted for in your international payroll setup.
As a specialist foreign exchange broker, NewbridgeFX can reduce the costs and risks of making large and regular international payroll payments by using our foreign exchange products, online platform, and utilising the extensive knowledge and experience of our foreign exchange specialists.
