How to pay employees across borders?

You are here

When running an international business, you need to pay employees in other countries the same as you would in the United States. If each branch has its own banking service, performing this kind of payment isn't too much of an issue. However, what if your company is centrally located in one nation (such as the U.S.), yet manufacturing or production of parts take place in another country. When this takes place, you still use one bank, yet you need to provide payment in a foreign currency to your workers. It may sound straight forward, but problems do arise. First, when depositing checks into their personal accounts (or when providing physical check payments) you will be hit with an assortment of fees. Depending on your current banking structure, you'll not only pay an international currency exchange rate, but you'll pay a high transfer fee. Chances are, there are other fees connected with the international payment. You can't reduce your employee's fee due to these charges (if they are guaranteed a set amount per hour you need to pay them this amount per hour). This means your company will end up paying a higher hourly wage than necessary. What should you do to correct this problem?
