Payroll in Qatar.

Qatar is a small country in southwest Asia that’s part of a peninsula in the Persian Gulf. The country borders Saudi Arabia and boasts a large population of expatriates that outnumber the country’s citizens. Expanding to Qatar is a great way to establish your company in the Middle East and form important business relationships.

Hiring in QaQatar.

When you first started hiring employees for your parent company, it may have taken months to find the right people for your open jobs and the duties you had in mind. Imagine the same hiring process, but in a foreign company with different employment compliance laws, cultural norms, and more. Instead of spending months trying to figure out how to recruit and hire employees in Qatar, you can choose a better option.

Compensation & Benefits in Qatar.

Introducing a compensation and Qatar benefits management package is critical to your company’s success. Your plan needs to be competitive compared to what other companies in your industry are offering, and it needs to meet or exceed Qatar’s compensation laws.

Qatar Subsidiary.

Setting up a subsidiary is one of the most challenging parts of an expansion. Failing to meet all of Qatar’s subsidiary laws could lead to expensive fines or delays plus set back your entire operations schedule. However, it’s hard to focus on learning how to set up a Qatar subsidiary while you’re continuing to run your parent company and trying to hire new employees, figure out a payroll option, and curating a benefits plan.

Qatar Visas & Permits.

The thriving economy in Qatar is one of many factors that make this Middle Eastern nation an attractive destination for foreign companies, workers, and investors. If your company intends to expand operations to Qatar, you’ll need to familiarize yourself with the immigration process so that you can obtain the necessary visas and permits for all of your employees.
