Worksuite unveils a new ebook guiding you through how to hire international contractors and scale your external workforce — both cost-effectively and compliantly. Scroll to download the free guide. 

Expanding your contractor hiring across borders opens your business up to a massive talent pool. Thanks to the rise of remote work, you aren’t limited to hiring full-time or freelance help in your own geographic location—you can hire practically anywhere in the world.

However, that’s easier said than done.

Engaging freelancers in different countries isn’t as straightforward as it should be. There are currency and language hurdles and compliance laws to navigate. And it’s not checkbox stuff we’re talking about—it’s nitty-gritty calculations, definitions, and employment classifications.

Ask too much? Trouble. Require too much? Problem. Share too many tools? Yikes. 

Plus, there are country-specific taxes and currency requirements you’ll need to accommodate. We’re not going to sugarcoat it—it’s a lot.

If you’re not careful, you could get slapped with heavy fines and penalties. Some consequences even include jail time.

That doesn’t mean you should take global contractors off the table, though. Not at all.

Instead, you just need a little know-how and guidance to stay compliant. And at Worksuite, we’re here to help.

In this new mobile-friendly book, we’ve outlined the key things you need to know about hiring contractors in 47 countries around the world. From hiring a developer in Qatar to a freelance writer in Portugal, we’ve called out the must-know details you need in order to hire with confidence.
