What is Employer of Record?

An EOR (Employer of Record) helps you hire, onboard, pay, insure, and support your hardworking team in India without establishing an entity. In this model, we can assist you in hiring the best talent with accurate background checks, manage payroll, compliance, benefits and equities, the office desk, and asset procurement under one umbrella, and help administer employment-related responsibilities for you.

Need Some Help, Here We’re

Employers of Record (EORs) hire employees in India on behalf of their clients. For instance, if you are based in the United States but want to hire an employee in India, you can do so through an EOR.
The employer (client) still handles the employee's day-to-day activities, such as tasks, meetings, performance reviews, and termination decisions, while the EOR handles the administrative burden of managing Indian employees.

There is no minimum. We’re happy to help you even with a single employee.

There is no minimum or maximum requirement; you can also avail of the service for 3 months or more than 5 years.

EORs allow foreign companies to onboard talent quickly in India without having to form a local entity or risk violating employment laws. We take care of all personnel aspects such as onboarding, payroll, benefits, compliance, and HR support so you can focus on growing and managing your business.

Indian employees' hours, time off, holidays, bonuses, and commissions are automatically calculated into the payroll via our platform. OBOX invoices clients (the employers) in foreign currencies ( USD, EUR, GBP, CAD, SGD etc) each month and pays your employees in India on time in the local currency(INR).

As a client and employer, you will have full control over your employees, you will continue to run your day-to-day business, manage your employees, and set goals and performance metrics. The EOR’s responsibility is to help with the HR administration.
