The 3 Best Australia PEOs & Employers of Records (EOR)


Doing business with an Australia PEO & Employer of Record

A highly developed market economy and strategic location continue to make Australia a leading player in the world’s trade sectors. GDP has remained steady for years. As a member of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, (APEC), G20, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the WTO, it has a broad appeal for foreign investors. Australia is very supportive of entrepreneurial growth, with government initiatives and a thriving economy that encourages new business development. The government is pushing strongly for growth in the areas of cybersecurity, infrastructure, and digital payment platforms, making tech startup entries very appealing.

With four legal business structures, making an entry into the Australian market can become complicated. The most popular solution for any start-up interested in testing out the possibilities of a new Oz business is to partner with local Australia PEOs (Professional Employer Organizations) and Employer of Record services. 

As they operate as legal employers, they can handle everything from hiring and human resources to payroll and other benefits management. They make the transition into the country much faster and more simple than undertaking it alone and can expedite nearly every facet of employee onboarding. 

We’ll look at more benefits of Australia PEOs/EORs, and look at the best ones for your needs.

Why partner with a PEO/EOR in Australia?

Despite the friendly climate towards foreign businesses, the initial set up and launch of a business can be slow. A local PEO/EOR presence is invaluable. In addition to handling the legal hiring of talent, they can continue to handle the variety of HR issues that are covered under their umbrella.
