Deel offers a one-click payroll for remote teams. It takes care of everything from onboarding, localized contracts, right of work document collection, tax forms, and invoice generation when hiring contractors. All that, while providing your team with the best payment experience across multiple payment methods and currencies.

The problem of hiring remote talent globally

There are a few challenges each company faces when hiring global talent. Having compliant contracts, ensuring the contractor's setup is adequate with regards to local regulations and whether or not you can pay them are the main ones. Template contracts found online might seem like a quick-fix solution, but there are multiple compliance risks that come with it. Every country has its own labor laws and regulations and every company needs to pay attention to it. Each contractor who is offering their services needs to set up their business properly, as an auto-entrepreneur, sole trader, etc. Having an onboarding process that takes into account both client's and contractor's labor law regulations is of paramount importance.

Deel's expertise is based on:

  • An experienced team of legal, finance, and technology experts
  • A minimal human error rate & more reliability
  • Partnerships with over 120 legal & tax companies

Three ways to hire internationally

  • Open a subsidiary: This option is the best although it comes with complications. It requires a large overhead and is quite costly, which makes it less optimal.
  • Open a PEO: having a third party responsible for managing and payouts locally.
  • Hire independent contractors: The easiest and most often used solution. However, it comes with various compliance risks, such as misclassification.

The option of hiring independent contractors seems to be the most popular one, albeit it is not 100% optimal. If you are among thousands of companies hiring independent contractors remotely, Deel's mission is to help you streamline compliance while mitigating the misclassification risks. However, if you want to hire full-time employees, Deel can help you with that as well. This service is still in private beta, but will be available in 70 countries upon launch! We do our best to make the compliance process seamless and give you the possibility to hire anyone anywhere.

Deel's unified compliance and payments platform does that in two ways:


On top of that, we provide 24/7 customer support and ensure top security for all users.
