Our company in Cambodia operates from Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Cambodia has seen rapid economic growth in the last decade. However, most organisations venturing into Cambodia face roadblocks that often make the processes we take for granted elsewhere a challenge here. Basic necessities like employment of a foreigner, administering of payroll, paying taxes are not that straightforward.

The Innovare Group provides a full contract management model in Cambodia specific to your requirements operating in multiple industries. We usually refer to this model as the Employee of Record (EOR) model. Some of the characteristics are elaborated below.

We are able to assist whether you or your consultant is an expatriate or local in Cambodia.

We have a team of payroll, immigration and compliance specialists ready to provide professional advice in terms of contracting.

How Innovare Cambodia can assist:

  • Immigration Services

  • Payroll Administration

  • Tax and Social Security Management

  • Other Employer Costs and Insurance

  • Statutory Benefits

Immigration Services

Immigration laws in most countries in Asia Pac often hold a local entity responsible for the entry, wellbeing, good behaviour and eventual exit of the individual. This also ensures that local immigration and employment laws are adhered to. This host company will be the technical employer of the individual.

We assist with the sponsorship of the work visa. Please speak to your Innovare sales contact person who will determine the appropriate visa for you or your consultant.

Payroll Administration

Our Cambodia company will administer the payroll for locals as well as for sponsored expatriates.

Tax & Social Security Management

All income derived from work performed in Cambodia is subject to tax payment, regardless of payment location based on the reported monthly payroll. We shall deduct the respective tax amount each month accordingly and subsequently paid monthly to the Cambodia Tax Office.

Cambodia wages attract an employer social security premium of up to 3.4% of the total salary, capped at approximately USD10. There is no corresponding employee contribution.

Other Employer Costs and Insurance

Innovare’s insurance policy in Cambodia (subject to terms and conditions) includes Professional indemnity insurance and Public liability insurance and is inclusive in our management fee. Workman compensation insurance is charged at cost.

Needless to say, all Employee of Record consultants are required to have adequate medical insurance to cover them throughout the entire contract. While medical insurance covers for expatriates and locals, medical insurance is a must for expatriates working in Cambodia.

Statutory Benefits

At the point of initial discussions, your Innovare sales contact will provide you with a list of statutory benefits which the agency or the end client must provide in compliance to the Cambodia labour regulations.
