Employer of Record Services

What is an Employer of Record?

In New Zealand, an Employer of Record (EOR) is a legal entity that assumes the responsibilities and obligations of being an employer on behalf of another company. Also known as a Professional Employer Organisation (PEO), an EOR provides comprehensive employment services to organisations operating in New Zealand but may not have a registered presence or legal entity in the country.

The primary role of an EOR, is to handle various employment-related tasks, including payroll management, benefits administration, tax compliance, and human resources support. An EOR takes on the legal and administrative responsibilities associated with employing workers, ensuring compliance with New Zealand's labour laws and regulations.

By engaging an EOR, companies can expand their operations or hire employees in New Zealand without the need to establish a separate legal entity or navigate our complex local employment law and regulations.

Talent Partners Limited

Talent Partners Limited is our associated EOR company. Talent Partners is currently the only specialised NZ-based company offering this service.


Talent Partners is the official employer of the client's staff, handling all employment-related matters, while the client organisation maintains operational control and direct supervision over the employees' daily activities.

This means client companies can focus on what matters most and outsource the administration and "back room" aspects of business.
