What is shadow payroll?

If you have an employee on assignment in a foreign country or a remote flexible worker, their wages may need to be reported in both the home and host countries via a shadow payroll.

Shadow payroll is used to calculate the appropriate tax and social security liabilities (in the host location) to be submitted to the host country authorities, while the employee continues to be paid from the home country payroll.
