Oracle Cloud HCM expands its global footprint to support built-in payroll for 10 countriesAustin, Texas—August 4, 2021
Oracle today announced that it plans to add support for India to Oracle Fusion Cloud Payroll, part of Oracle Fusion Cloud Human Capital Management (HCM). This new offering is intended to help make it faster and easier for local and multinational companies to pay workers in India while allowing customer to follow local regulations and practices. With the addition of Payroll for India, Oracle Cloud HCM will provide built-in payroll support for a total of 10 countries including Canada, China, Kuwait, Mexico, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States.
India is one of the largest business markets in the world with nearly 500 million workers. There is a significant opportunity in the country for a major cloud-based payroll option that integrates directly with a complete HCM system. Companies with employees in India currently rely on expensive, outdated systems or third-party vendors to pay their employees in accordance with complex local regulations around taxes, overtime, and minimum wage. Managing payroll through these workarounds can be cumbersome and slow, resulting in more work for HR teams and delays in getting workers paid.
Oracle Payroll for India is intended to give HR teams the tools they need to hire and pay workers in India. It is planned to include key enhancements to meet the needs of the local market, such as the ability to calculate taxes based on locally recognized tax systems, consideration of common local allowances and deductions, and recognition of wage rate regulations across all of India’s 36 states and union territories.
Payroll for India is expected to provide the following benefits to organizations:
“Oracle’s customer-first mindset drives an ongoing commitment to deliver new features and functionality that meet the needs of our rapidly expanding customer-base. Many of India’s largest employers use our cloud HR software, so we’re delivering new offerings that are specific to India to help customers grow their business,” said Chris Leone, senior vice president of development, Oracle Cloud HCM. “With Oracle Payroll for India, organizations in India will be able to gain new insights into their workforce while improving the accuracy, efficiency, and local compliance of payroll.”
