Welcome to Houston Executive Consulting your Employer of Record in Uganda. We shall be your legal employer of your workers. We take care of all compliance aspects of employment, including payroll, taxes, statutory benefits, employment contracts, and more.
As an Employer of Record, we assist your company to legally and efficiently engage with workers in Uganda without having to set up a local legal entity or risk violating the Ugandan Labour Legislation and Employment Laws.
You’ll still be in charge of the employee’s day-to-day operations (such as tasks, meetings, performance reviews, and termination decisions), while the Houston Executive Consulting (EOR) handles the administrative burden of managing your foreign workforce.
Let’s help you to navigate the challenges of remote work and compliance in Uganda.
These are some of the services we provide as an Employer of Record (EOR):
We offer full-service employee onboarding. We support employees to get started. We create contracts, acquire signatures, collect all the necessary paperwork, and compliance registration. We then add new employees to the company’s payroll. Sometimes we’re required to obtain work permits as part of their onboarding.
We handle payroll processing, tax and benefits enrollment, and administrative functions. The payroll management process includes various tasks such as paying employees on time, calculating gross to net pay, processing and reporting payroll, administering payroll-related data, calculating and paying overtime, and deducting statutory fees like NSSF, URA, and Local Service Tax.
It also involves forwarding payments to the respective statutory bodies and sending payment reports to the client. Additionally, pay computations are carried out to ensure accuracy and efficiency in the payroll management system.
A Single Point of Contact
To address any urgent needs or inquiries regarding staffing in Uganda, you will communicate with your designated representative. You will be assigned a relationship manager who will be responsible for providing you with all necessary information as well as managing your correspondence.
Immigration Support & Compliance
It’s easier for us to get work visas and work permits for your employees. We know the ins and outs of the Ugandan work permit processing. We will set you up for success right from the start thus preventing risk, fines, deportation, arrests, and lawsuits.
The reason we’re the best in this is because of Legal and Regulatory Compliance. We offer Low-Cost Service Offerings and Customization Options. We also trust our Reputation and Client References.
The Core Benefits
- EOR can help businesses mitigate the risk of non-compliance with labor laws and regulations, as the EOR is responsible for ensuring that all employment-related legal requirements are met.
- The client company, which may need additional workers for specific projects or periods, can focus on its core business activities without the administrative burden of hiring, managing, and paying these workers directly.
How Much Does an Employer of Record Service Cost?
The exact cost of our Employer of Record Services will vary based on the number of employees you have. At least we know it’s lower than what you’d pay for a full-service human resources solution.
Houston Executive Consulting offers a comprehensive service starting at $199 per employee per month (and $39 for independent contractors). We offer the best price on the market so far.
Our Firm is that trusted third-party organization that takes on the responsibility of being the official employer for a group of workers, often on a temporary or contingent basis. Sometimes, we call this arrangement “co-employment.”
