Payroll in Uruguay.

Uruguay is a South American country bordering Argentina and Brazil. Officially known as the Oriental Republic of Uruguay, the country is famous for its art deco buildings, colonial homes, old port market, and beach-lined coasts. Many companies see Uruguay as an attractive location for an expansion, especially if they’re entering the agriculture, meat processing, oil refining, tourism, and cement industries.

Hiring in UyUruguay.

Hiring in Uruguay is more difficult than hiring in your native country. You need to learn a whole new set of laws and onboard employees quickly so that they can start working for your company. However, many businesses struggle to focus on recruiting and hiring while also trying to handle payroll, manage the parent company’s operations, and source a new benefits plan. That’s where G-P comes in.

Compensation & Benefits in Uruguay.

Your employees expect and deserve the best. While providing the minimum Uruguay compensation laws will ensure that you stay compliant, going above and beyond will encourage your employees to stay with your company. The same is true about your Uruguay benefits management plan, but many companies do not have the time or knowledge to focus on hiring while dealing with so many other tasks.

Uruguay Subsidiary.

Your first step in any expansion is setting up a subsidiary. Once you have a Uruguay subsidiary in place, you’ll be free to hire talented employees, pay them, and start working in the country. However, it can take a significant amount of time, money, and energy to incorporate in Uruguay. If you don’t fully understand Uruguay’s subsidiary laws, you could end up facing fines or delays.

Uruguay Visas & Permits.

Uruguay is a relatively small country compared to its South American neighbors, but it still offers plenty of opportunities for expatriates and businesses looking to expand internationally. If you’re planning an Uruguayan expansion for your company, one of your first challenges will be building a team of employees to lead operations in your new location.
