Inquiries & Fees, Simulations, and WFH Plan (4th GEO)



GEO service

What is the difference between GEO/PEO/EOR?

  • GEO service means Global Employment Outsourcing (or Global Employment Organization). Using our GEO service, you do not need to establish a company in Vietnam, but can recruit Vietnamese employees (engineer, designer, accountant architect, BPO staff…)
  • EOR: Employment of Record

→Employ staff instead of clients. Accept most of the labor work instead of the client.

  • PEO: Professional Employment Organization →Focusing on Outsource service of the HR department (all of labor work such as recruit, attendance, payroll, tax matter..).

<Our GEO service definition>

GEO= EOR + PEO in Vietnam

Our laboratory-style offshore development (GEO) services are aimed at expanding into Vietnam, commissioning pre-company testing, securing talented engineers and other human resources, and also being able to operate a large team remotely.

With covid-19, post covid-19 situation, global moving is not so easy. And remote work has been more popular. In these situations, you do not need to establish a company and send a person to manage the company in Vietnam.

<span”>You can reduce the cost to establish a company and time to prepare all of it. Focus on your own business.
