Payroll in El Salvador.

El Salvador is a Central American country that’s home to more than 6 million people as well as one UNESCO World Heritage Site — Joya de Ceren. The country has plenty of natural resources and connections to other countries and continents. These characteristics make it a great place for companies looking to expand in South America.

Hiring in SvEl Salvador.

When you need to recruit and hire employees for your parent company, where do you turn? Maybe you post your listings on industry job boards, or you reach out to people on LinkedIn. It may not be possible to use the same practices in El Salvador, so how do you hire El Salvador employees while taking care of so many other tasks?

Compensation & Benefits in El Salvador.

Your El Salvador compensation and benefits plans are key to making sure you retain your talented employees and attract them to your company in the first place. Plus, you can ensure that you stay compliant by meeting the country’s minimum wage and providing all the relevant statutory benefits.

El Salvador Subsidiary.

Your starting point for an expansion to El Salvador is setting up a subsidiary. Your company’s subsidiary will give you the legal authority to work in the country, and you can begin operations as soon as you officially register. However, getting to that point can take weeks or months of hard work, a significant amount of money, and time you could instead use to start working.

El Salvador Visas & Permits.

El Salvador is the smallest but most densely populated country in Central America. With a tropical climate, developing economy, and use of the US dollar as currency, the country is an attractive location for companies looking to establish a presence in that part of the world. However, there are challenges to global expansion, including how to get a work visa and permit in El Salvador for all foreign employees.
