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 all countries except Germany and Bulgaria. 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, you will receive your first salary by the end of the same month, regardless of your start date in the month.
    • For example, if you are are fully onboarded on September 6th (before the payroll cutoff) and start on September 21st, you will receive your first salary in September for the days worked.
  • If you are fully onboarded between the 12th - 24th of the month, you will receive your first salary by the 10th of the following month for the days worked in the previous month as long as you meet the criteria for being enrolled in an off cycle payroll run.
    • For example, if you you are fully onboarded by 20th September (after the payroll cutoff) and start on the 25th September, you will receive your first salary on 10th October for the days worked in September.
  • If you are fully onboarded between the 25th - 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.
