Before hiring south of the border there’s a lot to learn. One of the things you must be knowledgeable about is how you will pay your remote workers and the logistics of doing so. In this blog, I aim to inform you of the recourse you have when hiring and paying workers across the border as well as give you a great option for a payroll and compliance provider and its benefits for you and your remote staff.






You can set up a legal entity in the country you are looking to hire from. This would be the preferred option if you were looking to hire dozens of people instead of just a few or several.

Doing this can establish a long-term presence in that country but is costly and time-consuming, which is why most use alternative methods that don’t require as much commitment. 


One of those other methods is partnering with an Employer of Record. An EoR simplifies benefits, payroll, and even onboarding making expanding easier for businesses.  If you want to learn more read: How to hire in Mexico: Independent Contractor, Employee, EOR by Ruben Murillo and you can also find out the difference between Independent Contractors and Employees.


You can hire an Independent contractor without relying on an EoR but like setting up a legal entity you must know of the local labor laws so you can avoid misclassifying your worker and getting charged any fees or penalties. 


The great part is you can directly pay an independent contractor from your business account in the U.S., you can use a payment method including fintech services, or common payment platforms like PayPal. Although, each has its benefits and detriments, for example, some methods may be harder to pay on time and others might charge the contractor a commission fee, which isn’t ideal.


Perhaps you have thought about outsourcing or direct hiring and you are not sure what is best. Both have their respective pros and cons, for example, with an outsourcing agency you are covered with compliance issues but have little management of your worker, unlike a direct hire.
