What are Employer of Record (EOR) Services in Africa?

An Africa Employer of Record (Africa EOR) service provider is a registered organisation specialised in the delivery of HR outsourcing services to global clientele who represent the continent’s international investors and social aid funders. These clients turn to an Africa Employer of Record (EOR) in case they do not want to set up their own entity in single or multiple African countries – or at least not right away, but still wish to test the market first. Outsourcing the employer function to a specialist provider mitigates risks, minimises time and cost consuming procedures, and allows investors and funders to start their in-country operations more easily and more rapidly. An Africa EOR expert has fully capable in-country teams and also manages the end-to-end payroll requirements for its clients’ local and expatriate employees – all in full compliance with applicable labour legislation and regulatory frameworks. Accordingly, an Africa EOR is not just a staffing agency.

Why use Employer of Record Services in Africa?

An Employer of Record service provider offers a readily available HR platform, together with a fully operational and proven system to compliantly employ and payroll local national and expatriate staff across Africa, thereby minimizing implementation time and reducing costs across the HR management function.

Key Benefits of EOR

No need to build, buy, rent, or register a branch office in- country. Your Africa EOR represents your local entity, helping you avoid a time-consuming and financially costly process. In addition, there is no need for you to support additional HR, Finance, or Legal functions in-country. Outsourcing to an Africa EOR improves the availability of funds and cash flow, ultimately supporting your development and market expansion objectives, whilst being beneficial to your bottom line.

Outsourcing to an Africa EOR transfers the majority of compliance risks to the Employer of Record in relation to hiring, the correct classification of the workforce, contract drafting, payroll, statutory payments to the authorities, and mandatory employee benefits – all of which minimise the risks of penalties and legal disputes arising from non-compliance with local labour laws and regulatory practices. In addition, it minimises the risks and costs of testing a new market in Africa or implementing an expansion plan across several countries in Africa.

No need to hire local or expatriate employees yourself. Whether for a small or a larger team, your Africa EOR becomes the registered and contractual employer of your workforce in-country and remains responsible for the full onboarding process as well as ongoing compliance in accordance with all associated regulatory and labour law obligations.

No need to manage your teams’ in-country payroll. Your Africa EOR remains fully responsible for conducting the end-to-end payroll process in accordance with all associated regulatory obligations and ensures that payroll is implemented compliantly, accurately, and on time, relieving you of the technical and administrative burden of managing a foreign and complex payroll.

Your Africa Employer of Record takes care of all the above and more, and in significantly less time than a foreign company could. Through its existing local entities, its comprehensive skillset, and the local expertise of a dedicated team attending compliantly to all requirements, clients have access to a full-service partnership, which enables them to focus on their core activities and strategic objectives, minimising downtime and subsequent financial loss.

Outsourcing to an Employer of Record service provider offers international organisations expanding into Africa a safe, proven, and legally compliant solution. There is no need for clients to handle the burden of complex international employment regulations, nor bear the responsibility for compliance. Securing the expertise of an Africa EOR who is adept at navigating the continent’s ever-changing labour laws and regulatory practices provides the ultimate peace of mind.

Local nationals and expatriate employees benefit from the assurance that they’ll be paid accurately and on time. Knowing that they have the support of qualified and experienced local HR professionals allows employees to properly devote themselves to the execution of their professional duties.

Employer of Record (EOR) Services in Africa

When to use an Africa Employer of Record?

An Africa Employer of Record service provider (EOR) assists multinational organisations when they have decided to expand into an African country, or more widely across the continent, but who also wish to focus on their strategic priorities and core activities.

These organizations outsource the HR-related functions to their Africa Employer EOR. When employing local workers in Africa or hiring expatriate staff in Africa, whether for commercial businesses or NGO projects, outsourcing to an Africa Employer of Record service provider significantly alleviates the challenge of navigating the diversity and complexities of Africa’s national laws and market idiosyncrasies.

Engaging an expert focused on Africa to assist with a compliant employment outsourcing solution, instead of setting up one’s own in-country entity, allows companies to tap instantly into valuable insights and local expertise (including experience with similar projects and industries), thereby streamlining the whole hiring, employment and payroll process and accelerating the start of the new African operations.

The Africa EOR then becomes (instead of the client) the in-country entity that is legally responsible for employing and paying the client’s local and expatriate workforce, including dealing with employee benefits and immigration support services.

An Africa Employer of Record service has become the preferred choice of multinational organisations who have decided to implement a market expansion strategy targeting Africa. An Africa EOR allows these organisations to both test a new market in a measured fashion and to implement the continued expansion of their activities across multiple African countries.
