Payroll delivery capability in 140+ countries

Interpreting legislation, complying with local rules, and providing all required documentation in multiple jurisdictions are problematic tasks that can drain resources. You are expected to mitigate the risk of non-compliance in all countries where your business operates, while simplifying your payroll governance.

That’s why you need a solution that’s global but ensures local control while being delivered in multiple countries.

With payroll delivery capability in more than 140 countries, provided by experts who are fluent in both English and the local language, across a network of more than 120 TMF Group offices, let us worry about your local payroll and compliance – globally.

A cloud-based global payroll service delivery application

Our proprietary master data management and service delivery application provides you with a single, cloud-based portal that combines global processes and technology with local expertise.

Your company’s data is exchanged in a single, standard format worldwide, using your preferred Human Capital Management (HCM) provider’s standard outputs, adding file translations for a bespoke interface integration.

You and your key stakeholders can assess trends and patterns to make informed decisions, thanks to the robust and flexible analytical reporting functionality of our middleware, which features meaningful visualisations based on available payroll financial data.

TMF Group became a Workday Global Payroll Cloud partner in 2017 with more than 59 in-country integration certifications.

However, we remain platform agnostic: we’re ready to integrate our payroll services with your preferred HR capital management and time & attendance systems, including SAP® SuccessFactors, Oracle PeopleSoft, SAGE HR, Replicon, Workforce and Kronos.
