Non-profit Organizations and Higher Education Solutions

Maximize your impact as a global non-profit organization or higher education institution. We understand the specific people, finance and resource challenges you face, and can help you optimize your international operations setup, reduce administrative costs and manage overseas staff more cost-effectively.

Select your organization type

You change the world…we simplify your back office

Partner with an expert who cares

Establishing your organization in-country, obtaining tax-exempt status, getting grants, grappling with immigration paperwork, local labor laws and reciprocal tax agreements – all of these can prove hugely time-consuming and expensive. Whether you’re venturing abroad for the first time or already operate in different regions, we can support you with a highly responsive, client-focused approach.

Establish your NGO in-country

We can help you establish a new legal entity in-country or support your existing local entities. With deep, in-country support and a global team of accounting, finance, tax, legal and compliance experts, we’ll streamline your operations, giving you cost savings and improved efficiencies.

We’ll make sure you comply with country or industry specific licensing or staff screening requirements. And we can also advise you on cultural differences and sensitivities so you don’t lose credibility or damage your reputation.

Employ staff competitively and compliantly

Employ new staff the way that works best for you – through your own in-country legal entity, through Blueback Global’s in-country legal entity or on a contractor basis. We’ll guide your staff through the immigration process, making sure they’ve got the right visas, vaccinations and work permits. And we’ll support you with your duty of care as an employer, helping you meet local requirements while maintaining staff safety and well-being.

We can handle your ongoing HR requirements too, including onboarding, payroll, leave tracking and benefits administration. All these add up to a great employee experience. Our studies show that when people have a positive human resource, payroll or payments experience, it reinforces their rapport with their employer.

Reduce your risk of non-compliance

Staying informed of fast-changing labor, legal and tax reporting requirements in multiple countries can be extremely hard work. We can do this legwork for you – enjoy peace of mind, knowing you are compliant.

You expand minds…we expand your back office

Looking to establish your university or college in another country? Not sure how best to employ staff? We can help your higher education institution expand abroad, advising you on the legal, tax and financial complexities of employing people around the globe.

Our Employer of Record solution has truly global coverage. If you win funding for a new project such as a research institution, we can act fast, helping you employ people through our own compliant in-country entity. Our local tax and finance experts can also help you navigate the complexities that come with grant funding from local or national governments.

We understand that your academics may need to travel to various countries on a short to long-term basis. This brings tax and immigration considerations, and more significantly, creates the challenge of paying your team in a cross-border setting. Our team can advise you so everything stays legal and compliant.

"As an NGO, how you use limited resources matters. Blueback Global helped us fill a gap in our HR needs without us having to hire an HR person."

Jamie Van Leeuwen, CEO, Global Livingston Institute

"I’d like to add my thanks to you all for the responsive service that we’ve received! It’s been immensely helpful."
