Employer of Record (EOR) in Myanmar

An Employer of Record (EOR) is having a local organization perform employment tasks legally on behalf of your company and the local organization is placed as an intermediary between your company and the employees to run the business without having the entity in a country or to reduce the burden on your HR team by having the intermediary company take that responsibility.

The EOR will handle the legal and regulatory requirements of employment, payroll and immigration as needed but won’t be involving in the day-to-day work activity so the company still can maintain all the controls of your employees and making all the decision on compensation, duties, termination and etc. The EOR is there to register employer for compliance purpose and cover the HR operational duties for your employees.

Why do you need Employer of Record?

If your company is thinking of operating a business overseas but need time to get licenses when you need to start running the operation urgently, if your company is testing the viability of a new market, or due to current legislative restrictions you are unable to set up an entity in a country, that is when you know you need a local organization to provide EOR services and hire the employees on your behalf. Another benefit to utilizing an EOR service provider, is that you are able to reduce the requirements to hire HR staff locally and the EOR service provider will handle all of the HR operational tasks.

Employment Law

Entering one country with the unfamiliar local employment rules and regulation can be challenging and risky for a company when starting up. By having a EOR services provider, you will not need to worry about the future complication that will arise regarding employment as the EOR is already familiar with the local law and will be handling this on behalf of you from the beginning.


Handling payroll can be different and complex from one country to another as they have different tax, social security laws and other relevant laws which may affect the calculations, income tax and compliance matters. As payroll handling is part of an EOR services, and as an EOR service provider will take care of all the critical details to ensure the accurate payroll and compliance for each employee, you will avoid getting into a difficult situation regarding payroll in the future.

Work permit/visa

To legally work and stay in the country as a foreigner you will need to have a work permit or visa according to the host country’s immigration policies. It can be complex as there are different types of visa, re-entry, work permit and renewal processes etc. No one is going to know the rules and regulations regarding immigration better than the local services provider.
