Global support

Many employers work across borders, which adds complexity to the payroll process. Add to this the rise of the 'gig' economy and increased requests to work in foreign jurisdictions and you will quickly appreciate the challenges facing payroll teams today. Through our global network, we collaborate with payroll teams in 160 countries to provide managed payroll services for clients, whether they have one employee in a given country or thousands.

Employers can rely on PwC to provide a truly global payroll solution. From territory set-up to payroll activation and compliance, our global teams can help you at all stages of your company's growth. In addition, our global payroll technology ensures that employers, and employees, have a consistent experience, irrespective of geographic location.

Practical support

We don’t only support organisations through our managed payroll processing solution. Our experienced professionals also:

  • provide practical guidance and support to in-house payroll teams (and sometimes other payroll service providers) tackling tricky and or unusual scenarios, including talking through Revenue Online Service (ROS) screens and menus, or identifying possible solutions to issues which have arisen; and

  • work on a secondment basis with organisations either with, or as, their payroll function to cover maternity leaves, backfill capacity for current payroll team members to undertake projects, or sometimes more unplanned scenarios.
