Key takeaways

  1. Managing payroll on a global scale comes with challenges, such as time-consuming reporting tasks and fragmented payroll systems. Organizations require streamlined solutions to address these complexities.
  2. An essential requirement for efficient international payroll management is a centralized reporting system that offers simple, standardized processes.
  3. With Deel as your payroll partner, you’re supported by in-house payroll advisors, 24/7 in-app support, and a dedicated customer success manager.

Improving internal efficiency is a top priority for global companies, but many are struggling to achieve their goal. 40% are stifled by insufficient resources, and 37% are held back by their HR team’s limited capacity and capabilities.

When it comes to payroll, internal teams are often restricted by time-consuming reporting tasks and inadequate payroll systems that don’t support international workforce management. These teams need a simple, centralized global payroll reporting solution so they can:

  • Get complete transparency into how much they are paying in processing fees or global payroll management fees
  • Project future workforce requirements based on current capacity and metrics
  • Get a holistic view of national and international worker data

Deel’s Global Payroll system enables you to run payroll around the world directly from one platform, streamlining international operations and eliminating the ongoing admin of local payroll compliance, taxes, employee benefits, and more. It also includes standard reports required by the applicable local regulations and labor laws, as well as custom reports to fit your unique business needs.

Keep reading to learn how easy managing international payroll reporting can be with Deel.

Thinking about how your current or future tech stack can support you and your endeavors with a global team is important. You will need a source of truth for your workforce data—consider who you employ or contract with, where they are located, their status of work, and how you manage them compliantly through their life cycle.

Payroll reports

Under our Global Payroll services, Deel runs payroll for your team each month and generates a payroll report for you to review. Once you review and confirm the payroll report, we move forward with the payroll package and payments, which can be processed through Deel or directly through your local bank accounts. You will also receive payslips and a gross-to-net (G2N) report to review.

The payroll report will include the following employee information:

  • First and last name
  • Personal email
  • Work email
  • Nationality
  • Country of residence (and state, if applicable)
  • Job title and department
  • Seniority level
  • Annual gross salary (and currency)
  • Start date
  • Adjustments
  • Employee number
  • Status and employment type
  • Last day of work (if applicable)


How to submit a global payroll report with Deel

If a client requests payslips, Deel will generate them to match the payroll register provided by us. To make things even more convenient, e-payslips will be created and made available for viewing in the Deel dashboard through the employee self-service function. 

Gross-to-net reports (G2N)

Enterprise organizations often struggle to get a clear and consolidated view of their payroll costs due to receiving payroll inputs and reports in varying currencies from different jurisdictions.

With Deel’s international payroll platform, you can generate G2N reports that aggregate all payroll data into one report, eliminating the need for manual work and ensuring you can easily access and understand your financials.

In the report, you can view real-time totals across countries, entities, and payroll cycles in a single currency. You can also drill down to specific entities at an employee level to get a precise breakdown of expenses. Our reports are standardized globally, making it easy for businesses to compare data across different countries and make strategic decisions. 

Our monthly G2N reports come with built-in variance reports that identify differences in current and previous payroll cycles, so you can spot any anomalies and fix them quickly. 

With Deel, you have all your international employees in one system, and you can easily hire people in a new country without finding a new payroller or even setting up a whole salary admin. In some countries, there are a lot of additional arrangements that come with an employment contract. Deel handles all of that.

End of year closing reports 

Deel can generate all mandatory end-of-year documents for taxation, including W2 forms in the United States, T4 forms in Canada, and P45s in the UK.

Deel HR reports

With Deel HR, you can easily manage data for employer of record (EOR) employees, Global Payroll employees, and HRIS employees in one powerful, user-friendly dashboard. 


Deel HR includes a series of visual reports that help HR teams and stakeholders understand the health of their organization, such as employee data like attrition, organization growth, and team performance. These reports include:

  • Total headcount
  • Retention data
  • Costs
  • Time off

Other HRISs are typically very domestically fragmented—it’s pretty hard to find an HRIS that will contain all of the data fields you require. Of course, using a Google Sheet is great if you’re running a 50-person or 100-person company, but it isn’t so good when you’re running a 2,000-person company and you need change logs and histories.

Dan Westgarth, Chief Operating Officer, Deel

You can filter Deel HR reports by global employment type, team, and country to gain granular insights into your global workforce and multi-country payroll. To locate your reports, all you have to do is go to your Deel HR dashboard and select the Analytics tab. Deel’s automation takes care of the rest.

Deel HR analytics dashboard
Deel HR offers a comprehensive analytical dashboard, empowering you to delve into reports on your entire workforce. You can access total employer costs across different hiring methods, as well as country-specific headcount data and the number of employees starting at and leaving the company. This data enables you to set benchmarking standards and easily track trends.

These reports are highly interactive, allowing you to use filters to pinpoint the most valuable information for your organization, be it a specific country, payroll processing cycle, or other criteria. You can also easily customize these reports to suit each team, download them in PDF or CSV, and share them.
