The acquisition of PaySpace is a game changer for Deel’s customers, the company said, giving them truly global coverage and faster, more flexible payroll for their teams.

Combined with a 2022 acquisition of APAC payroll provider PayGroup, Deel’s acquisition of PaySpace, makes Deel one of the most comprehensive HR and payroll solutions on the market.
