PeoplePay Global initially supported Arkadium by establishing a Portuguese entity, laying the foundations of in-country employment by creating locally-compliant employment agreements. With the core foundation in place, we moved swiftly to implement local accounting and payroll protocols. With the European Hub established, PeoplePay further navigated local requirements to obtain work visas and permits for key staff members.
Our service expanded when Arkadium decided to offer in-country benefits to Portuguese staff, as we were also able to source a reputable in-country benefits provider. By the end of Arkadium’s set-up period, PeoplePay had provided the full gamut of global payroll and legal entity solutions that allowed the company to operate and employ staff in Portugal. This included allocating local directors and providing an accounting function, in which capacity we continue to provide accounts on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis.
Working with PeoplePay feels like we have an extended HR and Payroll team in Portugal that is equally dedicated and meticulous about the work. They really made expanding our business to a new country seamless. The team there, and especially our Account Manager, consistently goes above and beyond. Not only has it been a pleasure working with them, they have many times been ‘life savers’”.
