As a new employee, in order to receive your salary in the same month you join Remote, you have to be fully onboarded before the payroll cutoff, which is the 11th of the month, 11:59PM UTC for most countries.

Note: We have an exception to payroll cutoff for onboarding in Bulgaria, Germany and most Latin American countries. The payroll cutoff date in Bulgaria is the 1st of the month and not 11th while the payroll cutoff in Germany is different each month. For countries in Latin America, the onboarding payroll cutoff is the 15th of the month except in Mexico, where it's the 20th of the month. 

We prorate your first salary to account for the days you've worked in the month.

Countries where we run a monthly payroll

  • If you are fully onboarded between the 1st - 11th of the month, and 
    • Start date is in the same month, you will receive your first salary in the same month
  • If you are fully onboarded between the 12th - 24th of the month,
    • Start date is between the 1st and the 24th of the same month → Your salary will be processed in the off-cycle and be paid out by the 10th of the following month for the days worked in the start month. 
    • Start date is between the 25th and the last day of the same month → Your salary will be processed in the following regular payroll run and be paid out at the end of the following month for the days worked in the start month. 
  • If you are fully onboarded between the 25th - the end of the month, you will receive your first salary by the end of the following month. 
    • For example, if you are fully onboarded on the 26th of September (after our off-cycle onboarding cutoff date of the 24th) and start on the 28th of September, you will receive your first salary by the end of October for the days worked in September and October.

Countries where we run a semi-monthly payroll

In such countries, we pay employees twice a month, on the 15th and last working day of the month.

  • If you are fully onboarded between the 1st - 11th of the month, you will receive your first salary by the 15th of the same month (as long as you have started work). If you start work after the 15th, you will receive your first salary by the end of the month for the days worked.
  • If you are fully onboarded after the 11th of the month, you will receive your first salary by the 15th of the following month.
