What is payrolling?

The payrolling service originated in the United States in the 1960s with the first wave of labor migrants. Payrolling, also known as employer of record, was first introduced in the Netherlands in the 1990s. It is estimated that 200,000 people currently work in the Netherlands with a payroll contract.

A payroll company hires the Highly Skilled Migrant of a client on paper and thus becomes a legal employer. Formally, the Highly Skilled Migrant is therefore employed by the payroll company. With this, the payroll company also immediately takes over the labor risks. The payroll company makes employees available exclusively and often for a longer period to the client.

How does a payroll agreement work?

A payroll agreement involves an employment contract between three parties: you as an employee, the client and All About Expats. The client has recruited you and lets you work exclusively for himself through All About Expats. All About Expats takes over the legal employership, including employer rights and obligations.

With payrolling every organization can employ a highly skilled migrant.
