International Payroll Services

Mastering payroll, wherever you’re located

Keeping your people motivated includes getting payroll right. With a small to medium-sized employee population that’s globally mobile, this poses a unique set of challenges – especially if you’re managing everything from a single location. You need international payroll services standardised enough to run efficiently around the world but sufficiently nuanced to deal with local complexity. And everything must be easy to use so that your HR team and employees get the payroll services they require quickly and reliably.

PwC’s International Payroll gives you a big company reach with a small company feel. We do this by combining the best tools available with the expertise of the world’s leading payroll network – all via an easy-to-use Global Payroll Portal (GPP).

Manage International Payroll - Harness the combined forces of the industry leader

The power, simplicity and reliability of our International Payroll solution come from a combination of the three key elements below. Rounding off the package is state-of-the-art data analytics and reporting functionality. You have instant, 24/7 access to all standard payroll reports, as well as any bespoke reports you require. You’ll be able to examine consistency and compliance on a regional or global scale, and will have valuable data at your fingertips to support business decision-making.

We’re there to help you coordinate your local payrolls and make sure you can handle the entire range of payroll, tax and compliance issues associated with an international workforce, including – but not limited to – the following:

The GPP can easily incorporate other HR systems and is certified for Workday integration to also enable international payroll.


A centralised project management and coordination team

serving as a single point of contact and making sure timelines are achieved.

In-house, in-country payroll teams (not subcontractors!)

We work with our employment tax, legal and HR colleagues to provide compliance-centric, technology-driven managed payroll services. Clients and their employees can count on high quality and a consistent payroll experience, regardless of their location in the world.
