In this issue:

  • Key Considerations When Choosing a Payroll Outsourcing Model
  • Calculating Individual Income Tax & Social Insurance
  • The Accelerating Trend Towards Outsourcing Payroll Processing in Asia

When determining which type of model is most appropriate for managing payroll across multiple countries, employers should take into account the advantages and shortcomings of the three most commonly utilized models.

The first, a country-by-country model, entails contracting vendors locally in each country. The second, a managed model, entails contracting a single vendor (integrated service provider) who subsequently sub-contracts the actual processing on a country-by-country basis. Finally, integrated models entail contracting one vendor able to provide payroll services via vendor employees in each country of operation, reporting through a single-point-of-contact methodology rather than sub-contracting payroll duties to other firms. Access Guide.
