How it Works

Boundless works on an EoR (Employer of Record) model.

That means that we co-employ your international team.

Doing so allows us to absorb the pain that comes with employing people in other countries.


Tell us who you want to employ, where they are, and what their compensation will be.

We take care of the rest: processing payroll, filing taxes, managing HR compliance.

You focus on building a great team, growing a successful business, and serving happy customers.

FAQ

For a full list of Frequently Asked Questions, see here.


What is Boundless and how does it work?

Boundless makes it easy for companies to grow their internationally remote team. We do this by co-employing people on your behalf, being the local “employer of record” for the individual.

What does “Employer of Record” mean?

It means that Boundless is the legal employer of the individual, as far as their government, tax, and employment authorities are concerned.

We are responsible for:

  • ensuring their employment is compliant with local employment laws
  • processing local payroll
  • filing employment related taxes and returns
  • issuing payslips to the employee
  • distributing salary payments

Our customers are responsible for:

  • managing the employee’s day-to-day work load
  • contributing to the personal / professional development of the employee through their work
  • following any guidance we give on employment and HR best practices or legal obligations in the employees home country
  • ensuring that payroll bills relating to their co-employed team are paid to Boundless before the cut-off point in each cycle.

Boundless is a legal employer of record for growing companies with international workers, in a number of countries.

How much does it cost?

Boundless charges 5% of total monthly processed payroll. That is:

  • Total gross salary payment
  • Total employer / tax related contributions / payments (depending on jurisdiction)
  • Total pension contributions
  • Any other benefits payments or additional payments/contributions processed through payroll

Reimbursements for expenses incurred by employees is not included, and is not taken into account when calculating the monthly cost.

We have corporate entities set up in a number of countries, can we still use Boundless?

Yes, even if you have set up your own entities, you still have to process payroll, and ensure compliance with employment law, for each country you have remote workers in. Many companies will outsource these processes/responsibilities to third parties. Boundless offers you the chance to combine these fragmented systems, relationships and workflows into a single experience.

We employ people as independent contractors, and it works fine, how is Boundless different?

If an individual is giving their full and undivided attention to your company, and they are treated as an independent contractor, you are likely in breach of employment laws both in your country, and theirs.

Your company could be liable for fines or other legal measures. The individuals you are working with do not receive the benefit of local employment laws and protections that are often afforded to people working full time hours.

We have written about this in the past:

What countries do you currently support?

As of January 2020, Boundless can support you if you have people you wish to compliantly full time employ in:

  • Ireland 🇮🇪
  • United Kingdom 🇬🇧

What countries do you plan on supporting and when will support be available?

We are currently working on adding support for the following countries (in alphabetic order):

  • Australia 🇦🇺
  • Canada - British Colombia 🇨🇦
  • Canada - Ontario 🇨🇦
  • Denmark 🇩🇰
  • France 🇫🇷
  • Germany 🇩🇪
  • Netherlands 🇳🇱
  • Portugal 🇵🇹
  • Spain 🇪🇸
  • USA - New York 🇺🇸
  • USA - California 🇺🇸

Being able to support employment of people in these countries requires us to establish corporate infrastructure and develop systems compatible with local laws, which can take time. We aim to be able to support these countries through 2020.

"Why Hiring Remote People as Independent Contractors is a Bad Idea"

Understanding the distinction between an employee and a contractor is essential. Employment is a legal relationship that is complex and requires fulfilling a plethora of regulations and protections that extend far beyond just paying someone a salary.

"10 Inherent Inequalities Between Independent Contractors and Employees"

Having independent contractors instead of employees can often be a cost-saving mechanism. Opting to work with independent contractors could be in order to keep headcount low, have an easier way to replace people if necessary or as a mechanism to work with remote workers in a different country without a registered entity.

Whatever the reason, feeling like a cost-saving mechanism is very demoralizing to any human... Read More »
