Payrolling is a modern employment and accounting model whereby the employee (e.g. freelancer, contractor, temporary worker) is not employed by the actual client (company), but by a payroll service provider. This offers you the freedom to choose how you want to work while you are 100% insured as an employee with us.

Once you log into the platform and share your personal details with us, we can create your Employment agreement. The Employee Agreement is uploaded to the employee's app and ready to sign. Once you signed you can invoice any client you create in your dashboard - we deliver the salary payment after the invoice is paid.

PatronPay acts as the intermediary between you (the employee) and the company you're working for. Deel engages with both parties using separate agreements. While you perform your duties for your client you get hired and paid by PatronPay.

We run payroll once your client has paid the invoice. We'll cover all taxes and benefits automatically per local regulations. You'll receive your payment directly to your bank account, and your payslips will be available after getting paid.

Please be sure to keep your payroll profile up do date in case of new events. If something changes, we may need to update info like tax forms or your Employee Agreement. Making timely adjustments is crucial; otherwise, you could pay more taxes or receive more allowances, which can be a compliance issue. If you're not sure whether or not this applies to your circumstance, please reach out. We're happy to help.
