We have a network covering over 100 countries for Employer of Record services (sometimes called PEO services) -our local partners will employ staff on clients’ behalf, so they don’t have to immediately make the commitment of setting up a branch or subsidiary in that country-at least not immediately.

We employ staff directly on behalf of clients in Andorra, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal, Poland, South Africa, Sweden and UK. In all these countries we charge clients 10% of the employment costs. For the other 100+ countries, we use partner companies and simply add a small margin to the local partner charges.

    I will most definitely be a reference for Rasmusson. (SWEDEN) It's been a pleasure working with Irene. She is very thorough and explained what I didn't know and kept me informed every step along the way in the registration process. She responds to my inquiries very quickly and processes the payroll on time each month without me having to send a reminder.

  • centrix


    Thank you for all of your assistance and tireless patience.

    We started paying our Swedish employee in January. All is going very well. Irene is a pleasure to do business with–extremely knowledgeable and personable.

    Netherlands is going well–NVA is doing a wonderful job. The relationship between Centrix and NVA has been very educational on my part and hopefully is running as smooth for them as it is for me.

    So far, EVERYONE you have referred me to has been wonderful—knowledgeable, easy to deal with, just great!
