Payroll in Ghana.

Ghana is a West African country bordering the Atlantic Ocean, Ivory Coast, Togo, and Burkina Faso. The country has a growing GDP, and English is the official language used in government. Because of major exports such as gold, cocoa beans, and timber, many companies can benefit from an expansion to Ghana.

Hiring in GhGhana.

Out of all the tasks you need to complete as part of your expansion, hiring is one of the most important. Your new employees in Ghana will help you build a global company while taking some of the stress off your shoulders. However, you need to hire Ghana employees while handling everything from compensation to payroll and meeting Ghana’s employment compliance laws.

Ghana Subsidiary.

When you get excited about your expansion to Ghana, you may feel tempted to just pick up and start working in the country. However, there are many challenging aspects of a global expansion that you’ll have to address before you can start working in Ghana. You’ll need to set aside weeks or possibly months to handle the entire Ghana subsidiary setup process, and that’s before you can start working in the country.

That said, you’ll need to make sure any foreign employees have the necessary visas and permits before they can begin working for your company in Ghana.
