Payroll in Latvia.

Latvia is a small country that’s part of the Baltic states in Northern Europe. With a western edge along the Baltic Sea, the country is in a great location for companies that want to form relationships with other businesses in Europe. Although it’s exciting to form a new company location, you have to worry about setting up your Latvia payroll and staying compliant.

Compensation & Benefits in Latvia.

One of the keys to retaining great employees is offering competitive benefits and compensation. Your Latvia benefits management plan must include the country’s statutory minimums, but you can add supplemental benefits to stand out from other employers. You also need to meet Latvia’s compensation laws to stay compliant.

Latvia Subsidiary.

Establishing a Latvia subsidiary is the most important part of your expansion. You need a registered entity before you can hire employees, establish a payroll, and give out benefits and salaries. However, it can take months to learn how to set up a Latvia subsidiary — even longer if you fail to follow all of the country’s laws.

Latvia Visas & Permits.

With one of the fastest growing economies in Europe, Latvia is a destination of choice for many expatriates and international companies. If your company is planning a Latvian expansion, a team of talented workers can go a long way toward ensuring a smooth transition. That said, recruiting employees is just one step of the process. You’ll also need to ensure that all of your employees have the visas and permits they need to live and work in Latvia legally.
