Managing Director
With our headquarters based in Belgium, we searched for a PEO that could provide us consultation and support regarding payroll in China. Although we have only worked with Horizons for a few months now, we are pleased with their expertise and the fact that they are flexible, very responsive and easy accessible. They were able to begin providing the services we needed within the short deadline we were looking for.
On deciding to begin commercial activities in China in 2020, we needed a service provider to handle the employment and remuneration of our workforce. We contacted Horizons to help us, and the result was a fast, efficient and fit-for-purpose employment solution. They manage to combine in-country knowledge of regulations and business culture with local European support and coordination. I strongly recommend them as a trusted business partner.
Horizons’ team provided a superb service from start to finish, making a complex process a simple one. Everything was taken care of in an efficient and accurate manner, with quick communication whenever required. Highly recommended and would use again in the future if the need arises.

Frequently asked questions

Horizons offers Global Professional Employer Organization (PEO) and Employer of Record services, as well as end-to-end employment solutions for companies expanding internationally.

In addition to our Global PEO, we provide recruitment, employee onboarding, international payroll, tax withholding, immigration support, company registration, and legal compliance services.

A Professional Employer Organization (known as a PEO and Global PEO) is an all-inclusive outsourcing firm that provides services to businesses, helping them to manage payroll-related taxes, HR duties, access to benefits, and other employer-related administrative functions.

A PEO acts as the employer of a company’s existing workforce, providing services that include payroll administration and tax filing, compliance support, employee onboarding, and training and development. 

Through co-employment, the PEO becomes the Employer of Record (EOR) for tax purposes, filing payroll taxes under its own entity. As the legal employer, the PEO is responsible for withholding taxes, paying unemployment insurance taxes, and providing workers’ compensation coverage. At the same time, the client company retains autonomy over their workforce and directs the day-to-day activities of employees. 

By engaging the services of a Global PEO, a company can commence operations in a new market quickly and compliantly. This also removes the costs and time restraints associated with establishing a new local entity. 

An Employer of Record is an organization that serves as the employer for tax purposes, while the employee performs work at a different company (known as the client company). As the host employer, the Employer of Record absorbs all legal and financial liabilities, whilst ensuring that labor laws are observed and employees are paid their correct entitlements.

The employer of record handles all personnel functions, including:

  • Processing and funding payroll
  • Maintaining local payroll and employment compliance
  • Depositing and filing taxes
  • Performing HR duties
  • Managing workers’ compensation
  • Collecting and processing time sheets
  • Creating and maintaining employment contracts
  • Employee onboarding (new hires)
  • Maintaining certificates of insurance
  • Carrying out background checks and assessments
  • Offering and administering benefits
  • Terminating employees

As the only Global PEO with an in-house recruitment team, we can recruit and onboard employees in your country of expansion. Our global capabilities and specialized local expertise allow your business to connect with the best local and international talent. We also provide support after placement, including HR duties, payroll sponsorship, and compliant labor contracts.

New Horizons has entities in more than 150 countries worldwide. We can assist you to expand into major markets across North America, Europe, and Asia.

Yes, we certainly can. Even if you have established your own entities, Horizons can still assist your business by recruiting and onboarding your new employees, processing payroll and taxes, and ensuring that you maintain full legal and tax compliance.

We also offer a service whereby you can switch from a local entity to our Global PEO solution. This removes the burden of managing multiple overseas entities and has the potential to save you thousands in costs.

Companies need to be aware that in many countries, it is illegal for independent contractors to work for the same employer for a prolonged period of time. Depending on the location in which work is being conducted, employers could face severe repercussions for engaging in such work practices.

These can include significant financial penalties and the removal of an employer’s business license if the classification of the employee is not established compliantly. To assist you to meet these challenges, New Horizons ensures that your employees and independent contractors are classified correctly and paid in compliance with the relevant local labor laws.

Yes, you absolutely can. Through our intuitive cloud platform, you can securely access employee data, create custom reports, manage all expenses and reimbursements, and oversee global payroll.

Alternatively, we can take care of any changes on your behalf. And when you partner with Horizons, all of your employees have access to an employee portal, allowing them to manage payroll data, contracts, payslips, and expenses.

Yes, we support pension payments in every country in which we have entities - more than 150 countries worldwide.

When you become a client of Horizons, you receive the added benefit of a single invoice billed each month. This invoice contains all salaries, taxes, benefits, and additional contributions pertaining to your employees.

Yes, that’s something that we do on your behalf. This is done on-time and in full compliance with local labor regulations.

We provide a host of compulsory and supplementary benefits that can be tailored to your business needs.
