The tax free and business friendly environment in the UAE has encouraged many foreign companies to set up their regional base in the country. When these foreign companies operate across borders and employ international workforce, they need full knowledge of the local regulatory requirements and must be compliant with global HR policies so as to avoid the risk of facing legal sanctions.

The diverse expatriate nationalities and the dynamic local regulations make payroll a critical business process. Moreover, after the implementation of the Wage Protection System (WPS) in the UAE, all the companies operating in the region are required to document a proper payroll process. Owing to this rule, many companies now need expert assistance for payroll services. This has given rise to outsourced payroll services in UAE.

Outsourcing payroll services in Dubai is a need rather than a choice for many foreign companies. It not only reduces their operational cost but also helps in keeping their payroll related information confidential from the internal employees. Moreover, outsourcing payroll service can save a company from involving itself in numerous administrative and legal requirements that come along with hiring an internal employee in the company.
