We work with recruiters who place contractors outside of the UK. Our payroll and immigration solutions help protect your client relationship and your industry reputation, so you are able to focus on placing the best candidates effectively and efficiently.

More and more recruiters and international staffing agencies are choosing IF Contracting as their preferred partner for workforce compliance.

The International Compliance Burden

Placing contractors and other candidates in international positions is linked to certain issues that could impact on the reputation of your recruitment or staffing agency. Should a contractor, be it unknowingly, not pay the correct amount of tax or engage in non-compliant activity, this would leave your company exposed.

If the contractor leaves the host country having not fulfilled their fiscal responsibilities, the host country would look to your client for recompense. Aware of this potential risk, it is frequent for enterprise clients to write into your contract that, should this situation arise, the recruitment agency would be at fault.

Aside from the payroll risk, there are other issues that govern the efficiency of placing a contractor on an overseas project. Each country’s immigration requirements will be bespoke to their laws, requiring sponsored work permits plus registration with the relevant authorities. This process requires local knowledge, infrastructure and, without a recognised entity within the host country, can be time-consuming.
