Is Remote more affordable than other solutions?

Yes. Remote is more affordable than alternative solutions, including other EOR services and managing your own entity.

What is the total cost of employment (TCE) and how do you calculate it?

Many countries require social security or other contributions and costs in proportion to the gross salary awarded to an employee.
The TCE is the sum of these contributions and the gross salary of the employee.

To get the TCE, we calculate an employee’s labor cost per hour by adding their gross wages to the total cost of related expenses (including annual payroll taxes and annual overhead), then dividing by the number of hours the employee works each year.

This will help determine how much an employee costs their employer per hour.

Are there any onboarding or setup fees?

We don’t charge onboarding or setup fees: what you see is what you get.
